Tufty with Miranda
Well it is that time of year again and sadly various small birds are falling out of nests. Tufty here is a juvenile swallow who is a would be 'Commonwealth games champion fly eater'.
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 ...
I stayed at the Isle a couple of nights a week for 8 months whilst working in the area. Ros and Edward were great hosts, making me feel very welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and breakfasts great - nothing was too much trouble no matter how busy they were.

Our stay at The Isle was a delight . Quintessentially English, a little bit eccentric and generous of their time and commitment to their guests' enjoyment and comfort Edward and Ros were the perfect hosts. All the boxes, and more, were ticked as far as the accommodation was concerned, not because they have to, but because they want to. Our room was attractive, large, clean and comfortable with an abundance of extras in the bathroom, an interesting selection of teas etc and oodles of reading material. Breakfast in the dining room surro...
