Good Hotel Guide Review

In a pleasant market town, Annie Rowley’s artful Georgian B&B is an Aladdin’s cave of vintage glassware, sculptures and ‘an unbelievable collection’ of objects. The town house, featured in Pevsner’s guide to Hertfordshire, has ‘immaculately kept’ rooms; two are cosy, one large, with French gilt bed, a bathroom with a raised boat bath. Plentiful extras include Belgian hot chocolate, snacks, bathrobes, ‘eclectic’ reading material. Traffic noise is muted by ‘very good’ double glazing, though some noise travels between rooms. Come morning, a ‘superb’ breakfast, with freshly ground coffee and home-made preserves, is taken communally, or in the shade of the walled garden’s ancient wisteria. Monthly pop-up supper club.

Guest comments

'Quirky and individual. Anne is a strong personality. A packed little front garden fragrant with roses. Inside is an amazing collection; all is immaculate. Our room and bathroom were small. Breakfast of a high standard. ' - SJ - September, 2015
