Hertford is the county town of Hertfordshire and it combines the best of the countryside with ease of access to the capital. A stay at a hotel in Hertford is a great way of escaping London and relaxing in the tranquil surroundings of Ponsbourne Park is wonderful for getting away from it all. With acres of space and plenty of leisure activities at the hotel there is plenty to keep visitors occupied. The surrounding area has plenty to offer visitors, including the Lea Valley, which is fantastic for days out with open spaces, activity centres and lush rural spaces, while Hertford is also recognised as one of the most desirable places to live in the whole of the UK.
Hertford has a rich history and many of the town's attractive buildings span interesting architectural eras. The town centre has many buzzing shops, bars and restaurants, with its market town layout giving it an open and relaxed feel. Hertford Castle is perhaps the town's most noteworthy landmark and is a well preserved example of a Norman castle. The grounds are frequently used for events, including open air theatre and cinema - and the castle itself is often open to the public. Another striking local landmark is the fine example of Jacobean architecture at Hatfield House, just a short distance from this Hertford hotel.
Hertford lies on the Lee River and boating is a popular activity, especially in the summer months. It is also possible to enjoy the river by cycling along the recently opened cycle route that runs along its banks. Further afield the Lee Valley Regional Park is home to a brand new white water centre built for the 2012 Olympics. The public can use the centre at the moment and is worth a visit for a fun day out.
Owing to its accessibility and proximity to London, organisations are well served for training venues and meeting rooms in Hertford. The acres of open space at Ponsbourne Park combine perfectly with the elegance of the 19th century mansion, which houses meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 100 attendees. The modern facilities come equipped with the latest audio visual technology and all catering needs can be taken care of by the team at Ponsbourne Park.
