Flamstead is a popular Hertfordshire Village with shop, pubs and excellent primary school all within a few minutes walk. Junction 9 of the M1 is close by with Luton Airport at Junction 10. Harpenden and St Albans are a short drive away, offering a comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and mainline railway stations into London. The village is surrounded by beautiful open countryside and the community is friendly and welcoming.

St Leonard's Cottage stands opposite the Norman Church of St Leonard's, in the heart of the beautiful village of Flamstead.
Over the last 29 years, the current owners have extended and lovingly restored St Leonard's, to reveal beamed ceilings, fireplaces, including an inglenook fireplace, and a well (or escape tunnel?) to mention a few of its treasures. This delightful cottage has four reception rooms, four bedrooms, four staircases, bathroom, cellar/office and extensive boarded out loft. There is a pretty cottage garden to the rear.
The Britannia Pub was once part of this building and many years ago, the Vicar of St Leonard's had rooms at the back. Most of the house dates back to 1512, making it one of the oldest properties in Flamstead.
