1st April 2019Lambing 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.
6th March 2019Spring is on it's way and although we are only in March it feels more like April with April showers happening today. We had a busy half term with visitors and now we are Spring Cleaning ready for our busier time ahead. Forget 'Brexit' and have something to look forward to - book a short break during March or a weekend getaway and come stay in the peace and quiet of beautiful rural South Shropshire. We have walks from the doorstep, quiet country lanes, wild landscapes and warm inviting accommodation. A Jacuzzi Hot Tub and a roaring open fire/log burner in Meal House. Curl up, open a bottle of wine and relax. Sound good? Then get in touch soon.
3rd January 2019Well where has the year gone! Christmas was busy and New Year too. Everyone feels a little down in the dumps during January but it's the best time to plan ahead and book those weekends with families or arrange a girls weekend. Our best rates of the year are in January and February so make the most of it and come along to stay with us. The log burner in Meal House will welcome you back from a days walking on The Brown Clee Hill and later you can relax in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub. What could sound better than that! Happy New Year to you all.
26th June 2018Summer time and the living is easy! Well if you're on holiday here it is at the moment. What amazing weather. We need a 'Cold Tub' not a 'Hot Tub' We have Swifts, Swallows and House Martins swooping over our heads early morning and evening. It's magical to watch as they scream into the tight places above the stables and cottages. We are busy making Hay (while the sun shines) and so everywhere smells of summer. We have some late availability so if you fancy a last minute break we always up for a barter. Give us a call!
24th April 2018Lambing 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.
