One of Hertford’s modern quarters, this neighbourhood of around 900 homes is Hertford’s largest housing development and was completed in the 1990s.
Taking its name from the nearby Foxholes Farm, it’s a part of Hertford that offers greater affordability, particularly for families with its selection of 3 and 4 bedroom houses alongside smaller apartments and starter homes.
Parking spaces and/or garages are standard specification for pretty much every property and there’s a well-stocked Londis convenience store within walking distance on nearby Birdie Way.
Foxholes is well connected by public transport and has no less than 5 bus routes, with journey times into Hertford town centre around 9 minutes and nearby Ware around 15 minutes. Access onto the A10 is particularly easy.
We remember vividly the time when Foxholes was being built: the Shepherds team worked from an on-site porta cabin back in the early 1990s, eventually selling around 100 houses for the developers, Abbey New Homes.
