The Maples

The smallest town in Hertfordshire, Buntingford was once a popular staging post on the journey from Cambridge to London. This has left a lasting legacy of excellent local inns and restaurants that belies the size of the town.
Far from a sleepy London dormer town, Buntingford is a vibrant little town in its own right, self-contained with its own schools, shops and regular local market. At the same time, London Kings Cross is just 38 minutes away from nearby Royston Station, bringing the careers and culture, shopping and shows of the city well within reach.

London Kings Cross is just 38minutes away from nearby Royston Station, Hertford East, just a short drive away offers direct trains to London Liverpool Street in 51 minutes bringing, while nearby Ware also offers direct trains to Liverpool Street in just 47 minutes.

Local Area Information

Buntingford High Street has an excellent selection of friendly independent shops and stores, and you'll find a traditional market, dating back to the 14th century, held every Monday on Market Hill. For the freshest local produce, try Royston farmers' market, held on the 3rd Friday of every month.
For a more extensive shopping trip, try the malls of Westgate Shopping Centre in Stevenage or Jackson Square, Bishop's Stortford, or hop a train to London for the flagship stores of Oxford Street, the style of Carnaby Street, the tailoring of Saville Row and the exclusive boutiques of Mayfair.
There is plenty to do in the town, with Ward Freman pool and gym within walking distance of the development, a local football team and youth team and Barkway Park and East Herts golf clubs both just a short drive away.

Plus, of course, with London less than three quarters of an hour away, the shows of the West End and concerts at the O2 are all easily accessible.

As a former coach stop for ancient travellers, Buntingford has more than its fair share of friendly inns and hostelries, including the Fox & Duck, the Black Bull, the Jolly Sailors, the Crown Inn and the Three Tuns. All offer a warm welcome, fine ales and great food.
The town also has a good selection of restaurants, with the Viceroy Asian, Buntingford Kitchen and Billings all highly recommended.
