Hertfordshire is popular for rambling country estates, orderly garden towns and cathedral cities. There’s so much to do here: you can picnic outside mansions with forest backdrops, explore redbrick Jacobean manors with mazes and get close to snow leopards at exciting wildlife parks. The home county is popular for shopping too, with outlet malls and high streets to spend your hard-earned money.
Why not make a weekend of it and stay at a modern hotel Hertfordshire? Beales Hotel is the perfect base for a weekend of exploring, with comfortable beds, stylish interiors and delicious food.
