The Area

The historic medieval market town of Hitchin, dating back over some 1000 years and originally built up around the River Hiz, is a truly charming place to live with a population of about 30,000. Hitchin has retained its market town feel and has many fine Tudor and Georgian buildings, particularly around the historic town centre, together with the beautiful St Mary's Church.

Famous for its traditional open market which is the largest in the Home Counties, open every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Hitchin has many high quality boutiques and independent shops including some larger chain stores. Its vibrant social scene accounts for the large numbers of pubs, cafés and some of the area’s finest restaurants; it also has two theatres - The Queen Mother Theatre and The Market Theatre - while cinemas and other attractions can be found in nearby towns.

During the summer, Hitchin is host to the Hitchin Festival including the Rhythms of the World concert which attracts over 20,000 visitors to our small town. Many of the acts at ROTW are from Hitchin or the surrounding towns which gives Hitchin a very active music scene. Further tourist attractions include Hitchin Museum and Hitchin British Schools Museum.

Hitchin is surrounded by many popular smaller towns and villages including: Ashwell, Baldock, Fairfield Park, Gosmore, Great Wymondley, Great Offley, Henlow, Ickleford, Letchworth, Little Wymondley, Lower Stondon, Pirton, Preston, St Ippolyts, Shefford, Shillington, Stotfold, Weston and Willian.

Kate Chapman - May 2017

We'd like to give Janice at the Hitchin office a special thank you for the stellar job that she did in helping us with the sale. Her support has helped to make what is a challenging time for most people go as smoothly as it could do. We wish there were more agents out there like Janice and we wish her continued success in the future.

Cristi & Matt - April 2017

Putterills were the sellers’ agent for my recent house purchase. The service offered to me throughout the whole experience was exemplary. Janice Richardson who managed this sale was just fantastic and dealt with every question/concern arising, with professionalism and empathy. I have no hesitation in absolutely recommending this branch of Putterills with the greatest accolade, thank you so much for everything.

Valerie N - March 2017

Helen from Putterills in Hitchin dealt with the sale and kept me informed at all times, provided advice and made me feel confident throughout the process. Thank you! My experience selling with Putterills was the polar opposite to purchasing through one of your competitors.

Helen Joyce - Nov 2016

Henry from the Hitchin branch gave us excellent advice on strategy and pricing. Janice was a charming and very efficient communicator between all parties. Just a big THANK YOU from both of us.

Andy Newton - Aug 2016

Thank you for the excellent service provided with regards to our recent house sale in Orchard Road. The sales marketing, literature and photography was of a high standard but most importantly, it was your experience of the housing market and negotiating skills that were instrumental in the sale of our house. You personally kept us informed throughout the whole process. Please forward our thanks to all of those within the Putterills team and we will not hesitate to recommend you to others in the future.

Rob & Ann Whatson - July 2016

Henry Canning took the time to listen, offered helpful advice and came across as professional, trustworthy and honest.
Helen Badcock was thorough and persistent in pursuing the chain. Always open and honest about exactly what was happening. Always called or phoned when she said she would.
I have already recommended you to my neighbours who have instructed you!

Mary Hamilton - July 2016

Helen Badcock has been fantastic from the word go. Good communication and went the extra mile to help us get everything sorted without our tight timeframe. It is refreshing to be treated as people and not to feel as though we were being squeezed for every penny. Minimal stress at an otherwise stressful time. Thank you!
