  • Big and Beautiful

    Welcome to Muddy counties. We have the biggest and most stylish of holiday rentals for large groups. Time for a group hug and a holiday.

  • Happy glampers

    I’ve only just discovered Home Farm Glamping, which is so far south in the county, it’s practically in London. Yet just look at the location. It’s got Aldenham Country Park on one side and its very own river for fishing on the other. Designed with a nod to those of us who panic when our […]

  • A holiday less ordinary

    Love a luxe break? A sucker for heritage holiday rentals? Or is it all about the location? They all have their place but, for pure fun value, there’s little that can beat a really quirky stay.  My fellow Muddy editors in counties from Cornwall to Norfolk, Kent to Warwickshire, have each found two brilliant, alternative […]

  • Win this £800 stay at Another Place The Lake!

  • Fancy a night away? Get Foxy!

    Don’t tell anyone, but me and Mr C just got back from a sneaky mid-week overnighter in one of the new rooms at The Fox at Willian. And it was bliss. (The room, people — the room! What are you like?) Big cheers to grandma for looking after the Mudlets — and huge love for our new favourite place to eat-and-stay…

  • Place your bets, please… It’s Vegas, Muddy-Style!

    Debbie, down in Muddy Sussex, is something of a travel bunny — she’s been just about everywhere and makes me feel like something of a stay-at-home country mouse. Thing is, she properly knows her stuff — so I thought I’d share her latest insights with you. Vegas, here we come…

  • The Muddy Guide to Thanksgiving

    For our friends across the pond, this Thursday is one of the most important days in their year – Thanksgiving. It’s bigger than Christmas for many American families, with people coming together from miles to spend the day together.  I lived in the USA for a few years — but Zoe, sometime contributor to Muddy Surrey, […]

  • Help Haiti — Buy Haitian Art

    Debbie, down in Muddy Sussex, has been all over the world — and written about it. Thought I’d share this piece from her about Haiti — a country that never seems quite to get a fair shake — and about an artful way to help support the people there…
