The Urban Guide to the Countryside
Hertfordshire Edition

Icon of Muddy Awards


Muddy Stilettos is the most influential lifestyle blog in the region, voted Top 3 Most Innovative blogs in the UK in both 2015 & 2016, as well as the Top 3 UK Lifestyle Blogs in both 2014 & 15.

The blog launched initially in Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire, written by ex Red and Marie Claire journalist Hero Brown now runs across 11 counties in the South of England, acting as the ultimate ‘urban guide to the countryside’ – a witty, informative guide to the very best food, walks, boutiques, day trips, hotels, interiors and events for those who live outside London, but don’t have the overwhelming desire to wear tweed every day!

An uncompromising commitment to independence, quality and high editorial standards and lies at the heart of Muddy Stilettos which is why readers feel so loyal to the blog and act on its recommendations.

The same principle runs through The Muddy Stilettos Awards – a desire to find and celebrate the most genuinely brilliant, unique, quirky, exciting businesses in the area. Our category structure means that small plucky businesses that often fall through the cracks of other competitions are given their chance to shine. See our full list of categories here.
