We obviously weren't intended to hear what she said but whatever it was is
Did she run into and fail to kill Matt? I can't find Greenwood Cottage on
any of the maps to figure out if Matt might have been walking on her route
home from The Bull that night.
Greenwood was Casa Nueva, and before that whatever it was where Greg lived.
The first few Who's Whos give Greg's place of residence as "A tied
cottage at Home Farm". So maybe it did not have a name.

But it's not Keepers Cottage, is it?
Presumably a gamekeeper did live there at some point. George Barford
might even have lived there when he came to Ambridge, though he was
living in the Stables, with Christine, by the time of the first Who's Who.
This book also says that when George decided to retire, Jack Woolley
struggled to find a replacement, so George agreed to help out part time
until a replacement was found. This indicates that he must have been
gamekeeper at Grey Gables, and we know that Jack owned Keeper's Cottage
later on, up until Hazel inherited it, so it might have been the Grey
Gables' keeper's cottage.
The book says that taciturn Greg arrived in 1998 to look after the
expanded Home Farm/Berrow Estate shoot, and didn't mind rubbing people
up the wrong way, especially competing gamekeeper George Barford. It was
therefore galling to George when Greg took over the Grey Gables shoot
from him a year later.
This seems to demonstrate that there have been two shoots, with two
gamekeepers in Ambridge, requiring two cottages for them two live in.
