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.

"My stay at The Isle Estate was first rate and I regretted that it was for just two nights. The house and accommodation are charming, comfortable, and with real character, and my hosts could not have been more warm, welcoming and accommodating. Breakfasts were expertly prepared using high quality local ingredients and the evening meal on my first night was similarly excellent with fresh vegetables from the garden and a very generous portion of chicken from a neighbour. I have every intention of returning when I have more time available."

"What a great place! A little concentration required to follow the excellent instructions on how to find them, but after that just relax! A great place. We were in the Blue & White Room (gorgeous). Lovely to have such a big room, lots of space, and beautiful bathroom. Lovely breakfast (home made muesli). I don't eat wheat or dairy these days, and this was no problem for Ros. She very thoughtfully found me some special bread and spread, and made muesli with almond milk. We ate out Friday night in Shrewsbury www.henrytudorhouse.com (very good, and funky in a grown up way). Saturday night we ate at The Isle - amazing food, and all of it from the garden, including the chicken, fab. Don't forget to BYOB! Dinner in the oak panelled dining room, surrounded by huge old oil paintings, and then a lovely fire blazing in the drawing room afterwards. Edward kindly showed us around the yard, and out over the moat and southerly fields, before sending us out to the lake. Amazing history to this place, and great to learn from Edward about some of what he is trying to achieve. Sunday: a beautiful spring day, and great to be able to go wondering off around the estate, along the river. Things to pack: bottle for dinner, boots and walking kit, binoculars (and scope if you have one, good dark skies). We'll be back!"

"Staying at The Isle is a lovely surprise. It really is a Country House. The views are wonderful. The rooms etc. are gracious, beautifully laid out, and comprise a mixture of taste, comfort, and a splash of luxury. But what is more unusual is that for all the splendour of the surroundings, the welcome and hospitality is generous and genuine. The hosts, thoughtful, friendly and kind. We woke up to a magical frosty morning after an arrival to tea and biscuits night before served in front of a log fire by Ed in the drawing room, Breakfast in the panelled dining room among the varied painted ancestors eating Ros's home-made special porridge, was a real treat. Ed and Ros's daily thoughtful advice and interest in our comfort made the whole long weekend run smoothly. But what fascinated us most was a tour of the estate to see all the good work this couple are doing putting back goodness and growth into the land: their efforts to develop renewables and sustainability; their crops, animals, ancient forts, tree husbandry; the reclamation and development of lost or broken down resources. And it was an instructive pleasure to listen to and discuss with them, their plans for the future. These people are seriously kind to others less privileged in an unshowy way, and believe their pleasure and duty as people is to use their life-tenancy here to help other people, their county, and the health of the planet. And don't miss the three dogs, each with their own offer of friendship, touch of madness, and eccentricity, and an array of cats resulting from the energetic efforts of a marmalade cat with one huge ginger tom, as far as we could see. However if you're animal allergic, don't worry, all pets can be shooed away, and are very obedient. We grew very fond of these people in the few day we were with them and will certainly return when we can. The best B & B I remember staying for a very long time, maybe ever!"
