Location - Barkway
Barkway is a long-established village in the North Hertfordshire, about five miles south-east of Royston, 35 miles from London and 15 miles from the centre of Cambridge. Barkway is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside but you are also ideally located close to many major road networks such as the A10 and M11, within 30 minutes' drive of Stansted airport and if you like to go in to London by train or you're a commuter then Royston station is approximately a 10 minute drive away with multiple trains each hour to London Kings Cross, as quick as 38 minutes.

The village itself has a real sense of community with many clubs and groups. For education you have Barkway VA Church of England First School and there are other local primary schools in nearby villages, a selection of secondary schools or private education. A highlight of the village is 'The Barkway Pavilion', completed in 2015, the new Barkway pavilion and community room replaced the previous old and dilapidated sports pavilion situated on the Barkway recreation ground, which now also features a fantastic kids traditional playground. The Tally Ho pub is popular with the locals, whether your looking to have a quick drink, something to eat or perhaps to join in with the local quiz night. Other notable hotspots within the village include the Village Hall, The Reading Room, The Wagon Wash as well as The Church and The Chapel. If you're looking to find Barkway easily just look for the famous RAF Barkway mast, the steel mast replaced an earlier wooden one which formed part of the RAF's wartime and post wartime GEE navigation system.

Just a couple of miles up the road you have the equally beautiful village of Barley which has a village shop, garage, doctors surgery and the 'Fox & Hounds' village pub, a recently renovated pub and restaurant that people come from miles around to visit that has already been nominated for a Michelin star and voted in the top 50 gastropubs in the country. If you're looking for a supermarket then Royston has a Tesco, Marks & Spencers and Aldi.

If you don't know Barkway, take a visit today, you may well want to make this your forever home
