LOCATION - WARE
The beautiful market town of Ware, Hertfordshire, is one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in Europe, dating back to the Mesolithic period, around 4000BC. Today, Ware is a bustling market and riverside town with a population of around 19,000.
Ware is located off the A10, with the popular town of Hertford just 3 miles up the road. The town is one of the areas most popular and you really do have the best of both worlds, surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, but well connected to London. If you are a commuter or just like to have regular day trips to London you are just 20 miles away by car and with very easy access by Ware train station to London Liverpool Street (approx. 45 mins) or if you prefer from Hertford East station to Liverpool street (approx. 49 mins) or Hertford North Finsbury Park/Kings Cross (approx. 35 mins).
Unlike many towns, Ware has a bustling high street and very much has a social 'café' culture. There is a superb combination of national and local independent stores, restaurants and bars. Of course, there are also all the other amenities anyone could need in the town including a library, doctors, dentists, superstores as well as having Hanbury Manor Hotel and golf course and East Herts golf course just down the road. There are multiple parks and playing fields, Wodson Park sports and leisure centre, walks and stunning locations to sit by or be on the river Lea which runs through the town and surrounding countryside.
