Rugby Lodge is a relatively new development in a residential area around two miles north of central Watford and convenient for both the M1 and M25.

Amenities close by include a parade of shops and businesses on Courtlands Drive, including a dry cleaner’s, a betting shop, a Post Office, a pharmacy, a café, a hairdresser’s, a Chinese takeaway and a Nisa convenience store.

Just a little further across Goodwood Avenue are an Indian takeaway, a fried chicken outlet, a fish-and-chips shop, a barber’s salon, a newsagents and an off-licence. Behind is the Goodwood Recreation Ground, although the The Grove hotel and leisure complex is only a couple of kilometres west around the bypass, just to the north of Whippendell Woods.

Roughly the same distance to the east is a retail development at The Domes, which is home to both a large Sainsbury’s superstore and a similarly-sized Asda, both including filling stations and ATMs.

Buses stopping on Courtlands Drive run regularly to Hollywell, central Watford, Abbots Langley and Woodside. The nearest train station is at North Watford, offering services to St Albans Abbey and Watford Junction. Direct onward services from the latter are available to Birmingham, Tring, Milton Keynes, Northampton and London Euston.
