Harvesting is over! The combine was brought home last night after a very testing end to the summer. The planting of next years crops now begins in haste before the ground gets too wet to work.
The horses winter beds are down in the stables waiting for them to come in at night as soon as it drops too cold or wet and the logs are being loaded into the log shed ready for the log burner in Meal House and the farm house to keep us all warm.
The Jacuzzi comes into its own during the winter months. It's the time I like to use it most.
Everyone has suddenly started cooking roast dinners and puddings and the salad bowl is to be found at the back of the cupboard.
We still have guests booked in with their horses enjoying the Autumnal colours and changing vista of the Brown Clee Hill and as long as you have your wellies or walking boots there's a host of fabulous walking out there.
As we head towards Christmas our rates become such great value so why not grab a weekend away and curl up by that log burner in Meal House or jump in the Jacuzzi and watch the steam rise!
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.
