  • White building behind wrought iron gates.

    Tŷ Newydd Creative Writing Centre

    Muddy says: A special place to retreat and write. Set between the sea and mountains of North Wales, expect residential creative-writing courses taught by professional wordsmiths including Carol Ann Duffy, Lemn Sissay and Patrick McGuinness.

  • Smiling woman in pink coat.

    Victoria Hamilton Lifestyle

    Muddy says: Honest, knowledgeable & heartfelt fashion advice on which colours and shapes will make you look (and feel) fantastic; if you want your personal style to shine through, Victoria's your woman.

  • Modern, scandi wine store.

    Berry Bros & Rudd Wine, Basingstoke

    Muddy says: Our award-winning wine merchant is a grape-lover's dream; all Champagne, fine wines, spirits and the very best, phew-the-kids-are-in-bed, easy-drinking bottles. 

  • La Di Da Interiors, Andover

    Muddy says: Tucked away off Andover's high street (and a two minute walk from Waitrose #justsaying), the Muddy Award winning La Di Da is the town's best-kept secret. Expect interesting, shabby-chic homeware, gifts for all AND workshops for interiors junkies including The Annie Sloane Method.

  • A modern, expose brickwork kitchen.

    Season Cookery School, Lainston House

    Muddy says: Super whizzy training kitchen combined with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and zero high-octane, hell’s kitchen faff. Want to polish up your wooden spoon skills? Then this is the place to do it.

  • Mandala Living

    Muddy says: Build resilience, deal with stress and increase focus with Mandala Living's luminous mindfulness meditation instructor, Kate Rowlandson.

  • Nadia Waterfield Fine Art

    Muddy says: This light-filled, converted barn in mid-Hampshire is a special venue; perfect for stolen mornings discovering world-class and emerging artists.

  • silver stacking rings and jewellery making equipment.

    Jewellery Moves

    Muddy says: Gather your dearest girls, be they friends or family, to make professional pieces that will tell their story for years, nay generations to come. Your teacher, the Royal College of Art trained Fiona Dowling, is a calm and deeply knowledgeable guide to the art of jewellery making.
