Little Black Book

  • Loft, St Albans

    Muddy says: new to the Cathedral Quarter in St Albans, Loft on George Street is beautifully stylish, and Nick Male's food is artistic, seasonal and delicious!

  • Temple Beauty, St Albans

    Muddy says: Temple Beauty offers specialist and advanced skin treatments in an environment that feels completely relaxed and extremely friendly.

  • Taylor Benfield Candles

    Muddy says: Think you know candles? Think again. Taylor Benfield is a brand new boutique candle company based in St Albans. I'm not waxing lyrical, but it's quite something to be able to enjoy armchair travel as you are transported around the world, all your senses a-flicker, with Ligurian citrus, Mallorcan orange blossom and Cephalonian wild flowers. Evocative, luxurious and delicious!

    Jessica Wall, Life Coach

    Muddy says: Feeling lost or overwhelmed? Wanting to make a big change in your life or sensing that your life could do with a few minor tweaks? Or you may have already made a big change, set up your own business perhaps, and now it's hard to rationalise your new identity while still attempting to be authentic? Confused? Aren't we all? When I met Jessica Wall, I was immediately impressed. An expert in Cognitive Behavioural Life Coaching, Jessica's business is Breaking Down Walls.

  • The Cricketers, Weston, Hitchin

    Muddy says: Looking for a friendly village pub with great food, warm hospitality and hearty country walks? How about a pub with its very own pizza oven? The Cricketers in Weston, north Herts, has it all.

  • Signal Studio

    Muddy says: Signal Studio is brilliant at understanding a brand in order to create a logo and website that works. Keith Wilson, the founder of this Letchworth-based creative consultancy, is wonderfully creative, but he also knows how to listen to his clients. His talent is in coming up with quirky and innovative design solutions. Signal Studio will also measure the effectiveness of your ongoing digital communication. Read the testimonials and see for yourself.

  • Yoga Atelier

    Muddy says: Yoga Atelier's approach to standing like a tree is truly refreshing. You are invited to get out and be close to trees, as you forage and learn about health and nutrition, before returning to the studio for some proper relaxation, yoga teaching and meditation. If you want to try something different, I urge you to give this a try. Remember to keep your mind and heart open!

  • Carpenter’s Nursery, Sandridge

    Muddy says: Carpenter's Nursery and its brand new cafe and restaurant The Potting Shed make a trip to Sandridge on the edge of Heartwood Forest a must! This family business has been growing for 94 years, and is a celebration of all things local, seasonal and delicious.

  • The Old Town Hall, Hemel

    Muddy says: The Old Town Hall in Hemel is a buzzing arts space with music, comedy and drama that delights and surprises. The building itself could tell a few tales: Eddie Izzard, Steve Coogan, Paul Merton and Jack Dee have all performed here.
