The Kelly family

Derek Kelly and his wife Malgorzata, along with their children Amelia, aged eight, and Maja, six, have just moved to a four-bedroom semi on the development in Three Cherry Trees Lane.

Swallow Fields has a direct connection to the National Cycle Network through the Nickey Line, putting the development within reach of the Hertfordshire countryside and giving the Kelly family easy access to miles of off-road cycle paths.

Derek said “The location is great, it’s close to the M1 and airport with shops nearby as well. The best aspect is that we can get to Nickey Line so easily as we love to walk and cycle.

“It also means we can get to St Albans, Harpenden or Redbourn to reward ourselves with a slice of cake in one of the independent cafes.”

The next phase of homes at Swallow Fields will be ready over the next few months.
