The Location - Piccotts End is a village situated on the upper River Gade. The village is home to several medieval cottages, a number of Georgian and Regency villas, one of these is now a public house, and an extensively restored 19th century watermill.

In 1953 some unusually fine medieval wall paintings were discovered in some cottages here. The paintings date to between 1470 and 1500 and show a number of religious scenes. It is believed that these wall paintings show a link to the 'heretical' Cathar beliefs of southern France and adjacent areas of Catalonia and northern Italy. The building was also found to have a hidden room in the roof, suggesting it was a priest hole and an Elizabethan painted room in the next door cottage. In 1827 the same building had been converted into the West Herts Infirmary, the first cottage hospital, by Sir Astley Cooper, providing free medical services.

The Marchmont arms public house is situated in the village and the nearby towns of Hemel Hempstead and Berkhamsted provide an extensive range of shops and supermarkets including Marks and Spencer, Waitrose and Tesco superstore. There is an impressive choice of cafes, restaurants and public houses and the area is very well served with excellent schools for all ages within close proximity.

Leisure facilities in the area include golf courses at Ashridge, Berkhamsted, Boxmoor and Chartridge, The Rex Cinema in Berkhamsted ("possibly Britains most beautiful cinema" -BBC), leisure centres and Champneys spa near Tring. There is huge scope for walking and riding in the local area with thousands of acres of open countryside including the Chiltern Hills and hundreds of footpaths and bridleways.

Piccotts End House benefits from comprehensive communication links by both road and rail, with frequent trains leaving Hemel Hempstead reaching London Euston in approximately 27 minutes. The M1 (J8) is within 4 miles and the M25 (J20) is within 8 miles.
