  • Is this the Chilterns’ best boutique inn?

    Very rare that I gush, but The Mash Inn is about to get it with two barrels for its fantastic offering for grown-ups in rolling Chiltern countryside. Hop, skip and jump just over the border into Radnage – it’s so worth it!

    • First look at The Plough!

      New opening alert! This charming pub by Dylans at Sleapshyde is doing great business. Wanna see what the fuss is about?

    • The Farmhouse at Redcoats

      Looking for stylish eating, sleeping and partying in a converted barn? Oh hello The Farmhouse at Redcoats, the pleasure is all ours.

    • 36 perfect pubs with rooms

      Fancy a weekend away in the countryside? The Muddy editors across 19 counties know the best spots for an overnighter. Eat, drink, RELAX!

    • The Fleetville Larder

      A knowledgeable cheesemonger, excellent coffee and delicious food. The Fleetville Larder is a very good place indeed.

    • Fun on the Farm

      Standalone Farm won Best Family Attraction in the Muddy Awards this year so it didn't take much persuading to get my cousin Jacqueline, her friend and two kids to check it out on a sunny day this August.

    • Holiday with Poldark

      The BBC bodice-ripper is back, yippee! Fancy hanging out in Poldark Land this summer? We've hunted down the best Cornish coastal cottages, villas and grand design rentals.
