A town in Hertfordshire has repeatedly been named as the best place to live for commuters with its affordable house prices and array of countryside.
Tring is said to have a “real community vibe” buzzing with independent shops, restaurants and cafes, with trains to London taking just 36 minutes.
Lifestyle website Muddy Stilettos listed it as the best place to live in Hertfordshire in March, citing its community feel and array of activities as the reason behind its success.
The website said: “If you love the idea of hip Berkhamsted but can’t quite stretch to the house prices, allow us to introduce you to Tring.

“It might not have the high street restaurant chains and high-end boutiques, but you will find everything you need and more on the pretty high street, which is buzzing with independent shops, restaurants and cafés and has a real community vibe (I should know – I live here!).
“Plus there are acres of green space to be found on the doorstep, with a direct train into London. It really is the best of both worlds.”
Muddy Stilettos described the town’s Natural History Museum – established by Walter Rothschild – as a “beautiful building” where you can “easily lose a couple of hours there with the kids”.
Tring Park also offers “affording spectacular views over town” along with more than 300 acres of woodland and grassland running along the Chiltern Ridge.
