Living in Hertfordshire
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Terlings Park.
Set within well planned parkland beside the winding River Stort, Terlings Park is the perfect location for exploring Hertfordshire’s rural natural beauty. Much of nearby historic Sawbridgeworth’s town centre is a conservation area, replete with Tudor, Stuart and Georgian houses. Hop aboard a pleasant river cruise or walk the tranquil Stort Walkways to Bishop’s Stortford, a town rich in character with its timber framed medieval architecture, great old pubs and a museum exhibiting artefacts brought back from Africa by famed Victorian colonialist Cecil Rhodes. Around 15 minutes east of Bishop’s Stortford is the magnificent and ancient Hatfield Forest. Whether you need somewhere for the kids to burn off a little energy or an oasis for calm reflection, you’ll find your own special place here.
Sawbridgeworth and the surrounding area is home to all the expected local conveniences; a Post Office, Bakers, Butchers, Banks and Building Societies and Budgens an independent supermarket. Tescos, Waitrose and Sainsbury’s superstores can be found in nearby Bishop’s Stortford, as well as a wider selection of high street, designer and specialist stores.
Terlings Park is approximately 6 miles from junction 27 of the M25 offering access to central London and 2 miles from the M11, offering a swift route to Stansted Airport in under half an hour. Luton Airport is 27 miles to the West. There are also regular train services to London Liverpool Street from nearby Harlow Town station and good regular rail and bus services to Bishop's Stortford.
