An unforgettable stay, can't wait to go back!

After a disastrous journey from Hamburg to Manchester and delay after delay we were greeted with a wonderful warm welcome from Edward as we arrived. He took care of our every need from a good cuppa on arrival, reserving us a table at a wonderful pub and a guided tour of the house, grounds and lake. We had lovely guests with us and a scrumptious breakfast with a breakfast fit for a king and queen! We discovered lots about the house, its history, the surrounding area and rare finds during a trip with the metal detector. Edward is a walking lexicon! We had a beautiful walk around the lake and visited the stunning horses. A truly unforgettable (if unfortunately very short) trip and can't wait to return. Thank you Edward and Ros.

Probably the best B&B in the country

We couldn't wait to visit the Isle Estate B&B again! This was our second visit and this time we were a party of five adults in three rooms.
From the moment we arrived Edward and Ros, and all the dogs and cats, gave us a tremendous welcome (we felt like old friends!) and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed or wanted. From finding us sherry glasses and nibbles - to serving up the most delicious dinner (including hand-picked vegetables, fruit, and eggs from the estate) in the grand oak-paneled dining room - to luxuriously comfy beds with lovely crisp bed linen. The spectacular views from all bedrooms are to die for - lake, trees, horses, and sheep, and a hidden heated swimming pool also makes a nice surprise.
In the morning we also enjoyed a 3-4 mile walk around the lake, a swim in the pool, and great conversations with Edward ... not to mention the most exceptional breakfast, that few hotels or B&Bs could rival.
Sorry if this sounds gushy ... but we will definitely be trying to find an excuse to go back for the third time!

Super hosts great time

Ted couldnt do enough for us arrived by canoe, collected from the river and stayed in a lovely estate home. Which is not stuffy but so lovely and welcoming. Room was lovely and breakfast was great. See you soon.

Beautiful property and surroundings

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Isle Estate, this time in a different room. 
Plenty of space, with a double bed and two single beds. Room was clean and comfortable with lovely views of the surrounding estate . If you like the countryside this B&B is a must.
The breakfast was fantastic, using local produce and Edward was so welcoming and helpful.
Shrewsbury is just a short drive into town for approximately £7 in a taxi. Where there are excellent pubs and restaurants.

Understated gem!

Unforeseen trip meant desperate hunt to find accommodation last minute - but from the moment I called and spoke to the owners, they couldn't have been more helpful. 
A particular theme throughout our stay! Text messages before we arrived to advise how to access the property if arriving late; a welcome party when we arrived with offers of help, refreshments and a tour to ensure we were comfortable. 
Located in a beautiful estate, if you love the countryside and a little slice of your own peace, then this place is phenomenal. Rustic charm you would expect to find in a historical mansion, modern amenities (WiFi, TV, etc) in the rooms, superb hearty breakfasts and enough activities to do outside to keep two young kids occupied for hours! 
I could not recommend this place enough and both Edward, Ros and their family were charming. We'll definitely be coming back and bringing friends with us for a weekend getaway.

"What an absolutely beautiful and magical place to spend a weekend! My friend and I had arranged a weekend in Shrewsbury to not only look around the area but also spend an evening on a ghost tour in the Prison. We found the Isle Estate online and what a find! We arrived down the very long country lane to find the entrance which is marked with two lovely old wall posts. The lane continues with some big speed humps along the way, however these did not cause us any real issues in a larger car. You may need to becareful when going down in something like a smart car. We passed many lovely farm fields and small cottages along the way which all added to the atmosphere of the estate. We then reached a charming yard, where we were greeted by numerous chickens, geese and horses. I was instantly excited as i love horses and ride often. We then approached the manor house..what a beautiful and historic building! it was so impressive and had lovely countryside views all around it. Edward came out of the house and greeted us straight away, he even took our bags for us which was a lovely touch. He is a real charming and friendly man who makes you feel at home straight away. He took us inside where we found the lovely hall way with the sweeping staircase and original tiles on the floor. We were showed where the dining room and living room was and he told us to use them whenever we liked. Which was lovely as you felt like you could be comfortable in someone elses home. We stayed in the Pink room which was so me! It had stunning views over looking the horses in the fields and the lake with surrounding trees. The bed was so comfy and the decor of the room was perfect. Very vintage chic, with patterned arm chairs, nice furnishings and lovely paintings. We even had a ensuite bathroom which was also immaculate and came with lots of different smellies that you can use. So if you forget anything i wouldn't worry as there was everything that you needed. Edward and Ros had then made us a very needed cup of tea and biscuits that we had in the living room. They both joined us and we chatted about everything and anything. It was lovely to hear about what they do on the estate and also it was really nice that they took an interest in what we do and what we are into to. Edward also said to us that he could run us into Shrewsbury so save us driving, but being that we wouldn't be leaving the Prison until 3am we kindly said no thank you. However i would take this offer up if I was just going out for drinks and a meal in town. Taxi's back are cheap. The breakfast was amazing! All local and home made! We were even lucky enough to try their home grown and pressed apple juice, which was lovely. We had the full works of Isle estate eggs, bacon, sausages from the local farm. fresh bread, home made jams and a hot chocolate crossiant. could not have asked for anything more! Edward also joined us during breakfast and he told us about the family history and who the ancestors were on their walls. He then showed us the artefacts that were found on the estate over the years..this was very interesting and it was lovely to hear about the history of the estate and the area. He then informed us of local places that we should visit on another weekend and for our trip home he sent us in the direction of a lovely village on the old A5 with a great coaching Inn. I will definitely be going back to stay at the Isle Estate and i would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet weekend country retreat. It was so homely and welcoming. If you have horses you can take them along and make use of the fantastic cross country course that we came across. Various jumps along the way. There is also an indoor menage as well as an outside school. The boxes were all a good size with plenty of space for the horses to move about in. If you do ride but you do not have the transport to get your horse up to the Isle, Ros can arrange for you to go over to a farm where the lady there will take you on a hack with her horses. We sadly missed Edward when we left as he had popped out. However we did catch him at the cross roads to wave in passing, but i would like to take the opportunity to thank the whole family. So thank you Edward, Ros and Bridget for welcoming us into your home and making our weekend perfect! We hope to come back and see you all soon."

"This was our second visit to this wonderful place. But it's not just an impressively beautiful house with equally impressive and lovely grounds. It's all that for sure but it's above all owned and run by Edward and Ros, who are the nicest and most generous people you could ever meet. Nothing seems to bother or be too daunting for these 2. As Ros said, when you arrive you'd think they'd be posh and snotty, but they're not, not at all, they really make you feel at home from the second you go through the door. Edward and Ros, greeted our French invasion - 7 adults and 2 very noisy under-two-year-olds - in their usual relaxed, welcoming and friendly way as though we were old friends. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderful, and as we settled and unpacked Ros served tea, coffee and biscuits in the living room. You instantly feel part of the family (wishful thinking on my behalf). One of the highlights of the weekend was rowing Edwards 107 year old wooden canoe down the Severn to Shrewsbury where Edward was ready and waiting on the bridge - taking great photos of adventure. At fairly short notice, Ros kindly prepared a delicious home-made, 100% home-grown/bred dinner (with a special mention for Edward who picked the green beans in the morning) for us and my elderly parents on Saturday evening. The evening was really nice and much appreciated by all, and much nicer than going to a restaurant. Thank you both of you for a great and unforgettable weekend. We are looking forward to our next trip over - and next time I'll try to refrain from dumping the family Wedgewood on you."

"Three generations of us booked most of the rooms at the Isle Estate as we were attending a family wedding nearby. Quite frankly, we would have been happy to stay at the house, with the delightful Ros and Edward, all weekend! In fact, we were really struggling to leave this beautiful spot and ended our visit with an amazing walk around the stunning river and lake. The owners of this beautiful farm are so welcoming and we really did feel 'at home'. The bedrooms were incredibly comfortable, with sumptuous beds and a lovely attention to detail. The bathrooms had been equipped generously, with shampoos, body washes, and even cotton to remove make up. Thought had gone into an imagined traveller, who on packing hurriedly, had forgotten some essentials. The house, gardens and farm are so unspoiled. It really is an absolute gem in the heart of stunning Shropshire. This has all the charm of comfy B&B, but is so unpretentious. We will go back if we are in the area (though will have to find an excuse, otherwise the Tates will think we are stalking them!)."

"This was the most wonderful place to bring a horse. We rode out each day for two hours on the estate without putting foot on a road. Wonderful canters on the banks of the Severn, on headlands and across grassland. If we'd wanted to, we could have jumped any number of cross country fences, used the indoor or outdoor arenas or had a lesson. The bedroom was perfect too, very comfortable and a flask of milk provided for our early morning tea. Breakfast delicious. Hosts Ros and Edward extremely helpful and very friendly, nothing too much trouble for us (a lift into Shrewsbury as we'd arrived in a lorry) or the horses (enormous stables they could have cantered around, there would have been turnout if we'd wanted it too). We will be returning next year."

"We have stayed here many times before and this is our third different room. This time a view over the river with the horses feeding and running happily around the fields, geese and guinea fowl wandering around freely. All rooms are fabulously decorated and in a charming comfortable way. All the beds are really really comfy too. Breakfast is the best and I compare this to other hotels of high quality - and this IS the best. Ros and Edward and family are warm welcoming hosts. Why stay anywhere else? We will be back again for sure."

"After recently getting married abroad and looking to have a blessing in our local church in Bicton. At the same time we were looking for somewhere we could take back a few guests for pictures and drinks, i found the Isle Estate online and saw how beautiful the grounds looked! When i rang up Edward was completely welcoming and encouraged us to come see the Isle Estate and the rooms.. We were not disappointed!! We stayed over in the White and Blue room which was just lovely, the bed was very comfortable and we had the best nights sleep. The room is spacious, clean and with stunning views. Our car came to get us from the estate to take us to the church. When we came back with our guests Edwards was there assisting and serving us drinks, we were blown away by it all! We had some fabulous photos taken in our wedding gear around on the grounds and our photographer couldn't believe this little gem. The breakfast was fantastic and again Edward couldn't do enough for us. All our guests who had traveled have said that they would definitely stay here if they come Shropshire way again. The Four Crosses is just down the road and they serve a good meal at a reasonable price or have dinner at the Isle Estate!"
