Hello, I’m Sally Trendell and I’m looking forward to welcoming you to stay in my beautiful Tudor Cottage which is in rural Hertfordshire yet is so close to central London. After flying as a Purser on the British Airways Worldwide Fleet for almost four decades (over 18 million miles clocked up!) I’d like to think that I understand the true meaning of good service and hospitality. I’ve certainly experienced both ends of the scale myself! I’ve had amazing experiences on my travels on every continent of the world - except Antarctica! I’ve watched the sun rise over Victoria Falls in the early 80’s and I have also visited Iguassu Falls and, in comparison, the slightly disappointing Niagara Falls. I’ve walked with the conservationist George Adamson and his lions in Kenya and had some fabulous beach holidays on several Caribbean Islands, The Seychelles, Malaysia, The Philippines and Mauritius. I have made many good friends from all over the world in cities such as Sydney, Auckland, Hong Kong, Nairobi, New York, Los Angeles, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. My passion is creating my garden in which I love to entertain my good friends. I am very proud to have opened my previous garden to the public five times since 2009 through the National Garden Scheme which raises money for good charitable causes. I moved to The White Cottage in the Summer of 2013 and have worked hard to beautify the lovely (but somewhat overgrown) garden I inherited and in June 2016 my ‘new’ garden here will open for the first time (see (Website hidden by Airbnb) I have also organised numerous recitals and open-air classical music concerts since 1993 and have personally raised thousands of pounds for the charity ‘Dreamflight’ started by fellow British Airways crew members back in 1987 as well as financially supporting the Ayot St Lawrence restorations. I own a super friendly dog Hector - a working cocker spaniel who will encourage you to throw the ball for him at every opportunity. I also have an elderly Ragdoll cat called Tilly-Jinx who naturally rules the whole place! I often have other friends’ dogs staying with me here in my large secure garden location. Some other hobbies I enjoy are entertaining/party planning (I have even hosted a wedding in my last garden,) seeking out antiques and quirky collectables - often visiting the local reclaim yards for unusual items to use in my garden projects, flower arranging and photography. My local photography teacher brings her students here for day trips to enjoy the wonderful surroundings and then to visit the beautiful church nearby at Ayot St. Peter…I provide lunch and refreshments hopefully outside in fine weather. One of my favourite subjects to capture on film (or with the binoculars which are provided for guests) are the numerous English garden birds which frequent my well stocked feeders. As well as all the usual suspects you will probably see buzzards, red kites and kestrels, herons, ducks and moorhens, woodpeckers and even a kingfisher! The sound of birdsong in my garden gives me much pleasure as does the local countryside, literally on my doorstep, in which I love to walk and exercise my dogs. As Annie Lennox sang in the Eurythmics song back in 1981 ‘Sweet dreams are made of this….I travelled the world and the seven seas….etc’ Well, my travelling days are now over and I’m living my own sweet retirement dream here in my idyllic home where I hope to meet you soon.

As I am retired I am usually found at home pottering in the garden, so am able to assist you during your stay in any way I can. I will be happy to recommend local restaurants to suit your budget, can suggest lovely nearby walks and local tourist attractions including Hatfield House, Knebworth House and St. Albans Abbey. If you prefer to be left alone during your stay then, after I have shown you the amenities of the Garden Room, I will leave you to your own devices, enabling you to relax in the peaceful surroundings of my beautiful, wildlife-friendly garden with the views of the rolling countryside.
