Land Prices

The supply of farmland to the market in last quarter is down 42% compared to the first quarter of 2016, and down 38% compared to the long-term average.

RICS Rural Land Market Survey

The latest RICS Rural Land Market Survey reports that land prices increased by 12% over the past year as the growth in demand for farmland continues to outstrip that of supply.

Arable land prices in the East outperformed the national average increasing by over 11% in the past 6 months alone.

A significant revival in ‘lifestyle’ demand for land is pushing up land prices and supporting expectations for further increases over the course of the next twelve months.

Studham is an affluent village and civil parish in Bedfordshire. The parish has strong connections to the bordering counties of Buckinghamshire to the south and Hertfordshire to the east. The village lies in the wooded south facing rolls of the Chiltern Hills within a network of countryside footpaths. Studham is perfectly placed; surrounded by picturesque and rural villages such as Whipsnade, yet close enough to enjoy the amenities of the larger towns of Berkhamsted, Luton and Milton Keynes.

Nearby Berkhamsted is a popular town with a thriving local economy, partly due to its fast and direct rail links into London. The town is a desirable place to live and enjoys a bustling atmosphere with its weekly markets and generous offering of shops and business’, pubs, restaurants and hotels.

To the north of Studham, Luton and its near neighbours, Dunstable and Houghton Regis, form the Luton / Dunstable Urban Area. The area is expected to grow due to development within and physical expansion of the three towns and large re-development of Luton. This major regeneration of Luton town centre is already underway, which will include upgrades to the town’s transport as well as improvements to the town’s urban environment.

To the south of Studham are the historic and affluent towns of Harpenden and St Albans. They have become much sought after dormitory towns within the London commuter belt resulting in notoriously high property prices in the area. Both Harpenden and St Albans have many independently owned shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants that give the area a unique character and charm.

Studham is close to the M1 motorway and A5 road, and is served by fast rail links into London at the nearby Berkhamsted Train Station. Nearby London Luton Airport is one of England’s major international airports serving London and the southeast.

Recreational & Leisure

The site is situated close to Studham Common in the centre of the village. Studham Common is a beautiful open space and a highly prized feature of the village, valued by the community as a place of recreation and a haven for wildlife. Its rich mosaic of habitats - grassland, woodland, scrub thickets and hedgerows - supports an abundance of wildlife. The West Common includes a playing field which serves as the village green.

The common is best enjoyed by following the 1½ mile Studham Common Walk. The walk is a popular tourist trail that is part of a network of public footpaths and bridleways that lead to the wider countryside as well as Whipsnade and the Dunstable Downs.

The common is in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty home to some of the finest countryside in the UK. The Chiltern Hills are blessed with a wealth of walking, riding and cycling routes.

Whipsnade Zoo is less than two miles from the site. Set in 600 acres of beautiful parkland, Whipsnade is the UK’s largest zoo and one of the largest in Europe.
