A charming village

London Colney lies to the south east of St Albans, borders the River Colne and is nestled within the glorious Hertfordshire countryside. London Colney proves very popular with young families, buyers downsizing, along with commuters looking for the perfect work life balance in this much sought-after location.

London Colney has a thriving community and boasts a good selection of local shops that cater for your everyday needs; a post office and well stocked convenience stores, quality family butcher, several public houses along with a pharmacy. Nearby is the well-known retail park Colney Fields which boasts flagships stores such as Marks and Spencer's, Next, Sainsbury's and many others.

The village boasts many historical buildings, some of which date back to the 1600's and is awash with period charm and character which adds to its appeal. The site sits opposite the Grade II listed Telford's Bridge which spans the Thames tributary.

With open countryside on your doorstep, long walks and outdoor pursuits are well provided for. Unusually for a village of this size it also boasts the hugely popular Cotlandswick Leisure Centre which provides a gym, outdoor tennis courts and five a side football. Many of the amenities London Colney offers are more akin to a small town.

The nearby roman City of St. Albans creates the best of both worlds; rich in history and medieval architecture this lively City boasts a fantastic range of restaurants, pubs and bars, along with buzzing independent shops nestled in with high street favourites. There are open parklands such as Verulam Lakes, and a green surrounding the St. Albans Abbey Cathedral, providing beautiful walks a stone's throw from the main High Street. Every week, the market place hosts traditional food and farmers markets helping create a strong sense of community within this diverse city.
