Blackberries

The weather forecasters say the summer will return next week. It's not cold and all our guests are still managing to find time for walking and soaking afterwards in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub anyway.
Bookings are still coming in with everyone grabbing those late summer breaks and enjoying the South Shropshire countryside. 
I hate to say it but 'Christmas' bookings are also being taken - even Easter next year!
What's new on Tugford Farm -

We've had to widen the road outside the farm house to get Wyndhams new combine up the road! Wyn wants to call it the Yellow Peril but I'm hoping it's more or a Buttercup which sounds generally less troublesome. 

Fetlock and Fearful - the hound puppies are doing fine and have been helping me (that questionable) to pick blackberries.

The damsons are ripening so we'll soon have to make Damson Gin which I'm a bit partial to.

I've been having jumping lessons on Coral, aka the baked bean. She thinks that every jump should be inspected before jumped and sometimes by me on a nose to nose basis!

We're improving but she's still very suspicious. It's not the height that bothers her but if it's different in any way it suddenly becomes very scary. I think we have a long way to go.

Blog - the latest from Tugford Farm Accommodation in Shropshire...

Lambing time in beautiful Spring sunshine! It's been a blast up til now with great conditions to turn our new arrivals out on to fresh grass. The Curlews that nested last year and successfully raised 4 chicks are back. We're watching them to see if they choose the same spot, in the same field and will do what we did last year, put electric fencing around the area to stop Badgers and Foxes eating the eggs. We'll keep our fingers crossed and update you on their progress. We have our first equine visitors this week who have had to dodge the council laying super smart tarmac everywhere. We're going to be very posh in the Corvedale you know! Brexit is driving everyone nuts so we suggest you pack your bags and hide out here in our little corner of rural South Shropshire. Light the fire in Meal House and turn off those phones to totally relax - at least for a day or two. Give us a ring or email and come see Spring erupting in little Tugford.
