The Location - The house is in a pleasant elevated location just to the north of the centre of the attractive village of Ickleford, which grew up where the Icknield Way forded a river on the northern outskirts of the highly regarded market town of Hitchin. The parish church, primary school, village shop and a choice of pubs are all within a third of a mile. The village is attractively set around a series of greens and commons just 2 miles north of the popular market town of Hitchin and Letchworth Garden City in north Hertfordshire.

Both towns, together with neighbouring Baldock, provide a wide range of amenities. All are on the mainline to London Kings Cross with regular services throughout the day, the fastest of which take 30 minutes, 28 minutes and 39 minutes respectively. Cambridge is 31, 26 and 23 minutes away in the other direction. For those travelling by road, the A1(M), A6, M1, A505 and A507 are within easy reach.
