The Experience

It’s worth hopping out of bed for Annie’s breakfast: luxury continental with raspberry brioche or the full delicious Monty. Her house is a sparkling Aladdin’s cave of mirrors, bunches of white twigs with birds atop, candles, cherubs, painted wooden floors, big open fires and generous bunches of roses. Bedrooms are lavishly done; nifty bathrooms have Italian tiles – and more roses! Close to the centre, this good-looking Georgian terrace house featured in Pevsner’s guide to Hertfordshire, and the market town is busy with theatre, shops and galleries. Return for a gourmet dinner in the magical courtyard garden – when the sun is shining!

Annie's place glitters and glows with her own personality - it's like nowhere else! If you choose to stay here, Annie and Emily will take really good care of you, and nothing is too much trouble. Walk to the pub and be guided back by the fairy lights, or book a yoga session to really unwind. A treasure.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Annie Rowley

  • It was announced in 2016, 2017 and again in 2019 that we have won Luxury Travel Guide’s Global Award for Luxury Boutique Hotel of the Year so really pleased with all the wonderful media exposure! #1 out of 10 b&bs on Trip Advisor for 8th year running too.
  • Hatfield House (8.6 miles, 18 mins). Home of the 7th Marquess and Marchioness of Salisbury, the house features superb examples of Jacobean craftsmanship and is the centre of a large agricultural estate with an extensive parkland featuring wonderful walks.
  • St Albans Cathedral (27.4 miles, 45 mins). The building's amazing mixture of architectural styles bears witness to the many centuries of its life, first as a monastic Abbey and now as a Cathedral.
  • Bayfordbury Observatory, Lower Hatfield Road (2.1 miles, 7 mins). A fully operational professional observatory, mixing comprehensive learning and research facilities along with real-world, hands-on practical work in the field of astronomy.
  • Paradise Wildlife Park, Broxbourne (5.5 miles, 14 mins). Hertfordshire's award winning zoo and leisure park. Come face to face with tigers, lions, monkeys, penguins, zebras, camels, reptiles and birds plus their white lions.
  • Fantastic restaurants and pubs all 5 mins walk away. Everything from Thai, Mexican and Japanese to Italian, Turkish, Indian and modern British. Try The Millstream pub just 5 mins walk away for great pub food and a lovely garden. Great cocktail bars too!
