Situated in North Hertfordshire, 35 miles north of London, is the pretty market town of Baldock. The town boasts a colourful history, dating back to Roman times and, more recently, it was an important staging post for many of the horse drawn coaches travelling between London and the North East.
Recently benefiting from the by-pass (A505 from the A1 straight through to A10 and Cambridge) and a town centre enhancement scheme, Baldock has retained its old-world charm and sense of community, and a new cafe culture is springing up! The tree -lined High Street has many listed historic buildings and the newly converted cafes, restaurants and specialist shops and boutiques have ensured that the vibrance of the town still thrives. The town has become a popular focal point, where friends and visitors meet and congregate for the many activities it has to offer - including the weekly market, annual festival, Autumn fair and Farmers Market to name but a few. This property is just within a few minutes walk from the High Street and station.
There is a large Tesco superstore, located at the south end of the High Street in a building that was a purpose-built film studio. Local retailers include the reputable Chapman's Butchers, Days Bakers and the Baldock hardware store. There is also a wide selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs, catering for all tastes.
A much wider choice of shops and leisure facilities can be found in the nearby towns of Stevenage, Letchworth and Hitchin and slightly further afield, the City of Cambridge (just 40 mins approx by car or train)
Getting to and from Baldock couldn't be easier.... with direct access to junction 9 of the A1 motorway, linking North Hertfordshire with the M25 and London to the south and towns such as Peterborough and Cambridge to the North and East.
The local railway station is only a couple of minutes walk away, where both fast and regular stop services provide connections to many of the principal towns between London and Cambridge. A non-stop rail service from Baldock direct to London Kings Cross takes approximately 40 minutes. For travelling further afield, both Luton and Stansted airports are both within a 40-minute drive.
