Welcome to Hatfield – a perfect marriage of old and new, from the charming Old Hatfield village with the splendid grounds and grandeur of Hatfield House – to the modern retail Mecca of The Galleria: a shopper’s paradise filled with high-street favourites, designer brands, cafes and restaurants.
With everything you could want right on your doorstep and London only a short-hop away, Hatfield has fast become a highly popular place to live. Our luxury one and two bedroom apartments at Highclere House have been beautifully built and designed for you to get the best out of life. With modern design offering bright and airy spaces with a wealth of smart design features and flawless finishing touches. Every apartment is decorated perfectly in a tasteful and contemporary style, and you can expect the very best in high-end integrated appliances, and all the latest security systems as standard.
Highclere House also offers a beautifully designed furnished lounge for all Homeowners to enjoy as a community and with friends and family all year round, with adjoining furnished patio and surrounding landscaped gardens, making it the ideal place to sit back and relax whatever the season and occasion.
The town of Hatfield easily provides all of life’s little necessities – from a wide range of well-known supermarkets, independent shops and high street retailers – to doctors’ surgeries, dental practice, post-office and banks. Everything you need is just a short walk away – including plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants. The welcoming Red Lion Pub is just a short stroll from the development and provides some great dining.
But there’s far more to Hatfield than its many modern amenities. Old Hatfield was left untouched by any post-war development and still remains a place full of old-world charm and character. The nearby Hatfield House is a magnificent Jacobean mansion with stunning ornamental gardens and splendid grounds. Offering extensive tours of the house and gardens, and has many attractions including a child-friendly farm; a restaurant and café and regular annual community events.
If you’d rather enjoy some intense retail therapy, The Galleria Designer Outlet is only a short distance away (approx. 1.7 miles) and has a massive variety of big-name brands and independent stores – as well as a huge selection of restaurants, cafes and the Odeon Cinema. Hatfield Train Station is only a few minutes walk from the proposed development and provides direct services to central London, reaching Finsbury Park Station in approximately 16 minutes and Kings Cross in 22 minutes. There are also regular trains to Welwyn garden City; Stevenage and Cambridge. Directly outside Highclere House has a bus stop offering a regular service to Welwyn Garden City providing easy access to Waitrose and John Lewis.
