Spacious, tranquil four bedroom family home 30 minutes to London or Cambridge

Our house is a spacious four bedroom family home in a quiet enclave of Hitchin, a charming market town which is a 30 minute train ride from central London, and 30 minutes from Cambridge in the other direction.

From our house, you can take a 10 minute walk into Hitchin town centre which offers plenty of great restaurants, boutiques, traditional pubs and bars, parks and sports facilities. We're also close to several large supermarkets for food shopping. The surrounding Hertfordshire countryside is close by, with its gently rolling hills and stately homes; great for refreshing walks and days out. Cambridge is also 30 minutes away by train if you fancy visiting one of the world's oldest universities and having a punt on the river.

Our home is detached with two floors. It has a large kitchen-dining area, a separate sitting room, study, utility room and toilet downstairs; and four bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs, as well as an ensuite shower room to the master bedroom. Three of the bedrooms have double beds, and the fourth bedroom has a single bed and a cot.

We have a quiet, private garden at the back with children's play equipment and a table and chairs for al fresco eating in the summer. The neighbourhood is peaceful and quiet.

We have plenty of baby / toddler equipment - 2 high chairs, toys, games, etc. We also have stair gates at the top and bottom of our stairs, which means you can relax if you have small children like us!

We have fast wifi and all the usual TV streaming services.
