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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
