Best Western have 4 hotels in Hertfordshire

> See all hotels in Hertfordshire

A hotel in Hertfordshire allows you to experience the fabled home county EM Forster called 'England at its quietest' in 'Howards End'. Hertfordshire offers all the benefits of its close proximity to London and yet is home to masses of beautiful countryside and picturesque towns.

Town and city breaks in Hertfordshire

Staying in a Hertfordshire hotel will allow you to explore the beautiful towns of Letchworth and Welwyn, the first of Ebenezer Howard's Garden Cities, built in the early 20th century. The Welwyn Roman Baths, ruins from a small part of a 3rd century Roman villa, lie just north of the town. In the city of St Albans there's a thriving street market to peruse and the stunning St Albans Cathedral to marvel at. Head to little village Chorleywood for lovely country pubs and a heavenly treat or two from Manna Delicatessen.

Holidays in the Hertfordshire countryside

Your Hertfordshire hotel places you close to Lemsford Springs Natural Reserve, home to kingfishers, nesting kestrels, and other birds, as well as some unusual flowers and plants. Here you can watch the charming little green sandpipers dive for shrimps in the freshwater lagoons. Follow the beautiful Ayot Greenway, a former railway branch line, under bridges and through verdant woodlands. Outside Hatfield House you'll find acres of park to explore, including a maze and an ancient great oak tree - supposedly where Elizabeth I was playing as a young girl when she learnt she would accede to the throne in 1558. Near Ashridge Estate you can explore the enchanting Dockey Woods, which heave with bluebells in springtime.

Attractions in Hertfordshire

There are some mind-boggling exhibitions at the Natural History Museum at Tring. Look out for the model recreations of the long dormant dodo, and the tiny fleas dressed up as Mexican dancers. Join Charles Dickens and Sir Winston Churchill in counting yourself as a visitor of grand Knebworth House, a 500-year-old stately home in the north of the county. At the Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne you can hand-feed gorgeous white lions, compare the meerkats, or simply take a tour round the gardens. Visit Ayot St Lawrence during your short break to discover your inner poet; Shaw's Corner is the country residence George Barnard Shaw called home for 44 years. At the end of the garden still stands Bernard Shaw's unique little writing hut, which could be rotated on its steel-pole frame to follow the sunlight throughout the day. Step even further back in time in St Albans at the Verulamium Museum with its many displays and hands-on discovery areas. Book a hotel in Hertfordshire with Best Western to get the most out of this glorious county. Plan a short break here today.
