Lambing is over, well almost, we have just 15 Ewes waiting to lamb. All the rest are out in the fields with their babies enjoying the Spring grass. Everything is greening up beautifully and Wyn finished planting the Spring Oats today.
Easter has come and gone and we were really busy with lovely guests, some we have known for a long time, some with four legs and some new faces.
We've had Stag Parties and Birthday parties for young and old'ish.
As we head towards the end of April we know that May and June will bring everyone out to enjoy, what I consider, the best time of the year in the Countryside. Long days and evenings with plenty of time to enjoy everything we have around us. Walks and rides, if you have either a horse or bike, on the wonderful Brown Clee Hill. BBQ's by the Jacuzzi Hot Tub, Ludlow and it's Medieval Castle, Teme River walks and pubs and of course the open air market for those special purchases of local food etc.
Talking for food don't forget we have three very special pubs on our doorstep. The closest and walkable is The Tally Ho serving good pub food. The Swan Inn at Aston Munslow, only 5 minutes in the car, serving a wide selection of pub meals. Both of the above also serve the Ludlow Brewery 'Ludlow Gold Ale' and lastly for a special evening of AA rosette food, the Crown Country Inn at Munslow again only 5 minutes by car.
So how about some 'me and us time'? Check out our availability and come and enjoy some time out.

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.
