Harvest has started
The combine has started rolling here with some of our oilseed rape been cut in a field called The Barrs. This will then go to make cooking oil and in some cases bio fuel. Next to be ready will be the winter wheat.
Just spent three nights enjoying the home of Ros and Edward Tate. They were extremely hospitable and made us all feel at home. Lovely home grown and cooked three course meals were provided every evening and were washed down with wine we had brought! Lovely surroundings and masses of animals everywhere was a winning combination for me.
Our stay at The Isle was a delight .

Just one note of caution- try not to arrive after dark. The speed humps are not very easy to see in darkness, then its quite easy to get lost in the farmyard even when you are almost at the house.
Once we did thread our way through though, the welcome was warm and relaxing. A pot of tea served by a roaring log fire in the sitting room was very welcome.
We'd chosen the Blue and White Room, which was very comfortable. Loads of fun trying to figure out the massage settings on the bed!
We'd opted to dine in on both evenings, reasoning ...
