Garden Wildlife

The garden is still full of wildlife even at this time of the year with the bird feeders attracting some lovely birds. However we had an intruder at the feeders the other day as a squirrel decided to attempt to get some of the nuts.
Pam managed to catch it in the act and it looks like some robber in a set of white overalls!!
We even managed to see a woodpecker at the feeders the other day but unfortunately we were not quick enough to get a photograph. Watch this space........

Breakfast Award

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the newly launched Breakfast Award by Visit England. Only 7% of B&B establishments throughout the country have received this award and the girls are thrilled that their quality breakfasts have been recognised in our recent assessment.
The fact that we source the majority of the components of our breakfasts from the local farms has paid dividends. Hayway Farm in Broadway and our own local Mabels Farm in Back Street have maintained their high standard of produce and we are pleased to keep using them.

The Folly Challenge

The recently launched Folly Challenge has been added to our breakfast menu. This option is so stacked that we had to buy new plates to fit everything on!
Several guests have risen to The Challenge and have only just managed to finish their breakfast. Check out the menu to see what all is included.
Can you manage the Folly Challenge? We look forward to welcoming you to the Cottage and we will ensure that you have a great break with us. Click here to see the whole breakfast menu.

Go on holiday on an egg.

If the thought of a big breakfast is too much for you when you stay with us why not go for the boiled egg option. We now have fantastic double egg cup holders which look the part with the large eggs that we get from Hayway farm in Broadway.

Fresh Fruit & Veg

For those guests who are having evening meals with us these days they are able to enjoy our home grown fruit and veg. New potatoes, cucumber, tomatoes, courgettes, chilli peppers and rhubarb are all used in the cooking just now.
Another couple of weeks should see the addition of apples, pears and plums to make the seasonal crumble even more delicious.

Nature on the Doorstep

For those of you who are visiting us soon please make a point of looking at the nest in the front porch with the five young baby birds. They are a delight. They are getting constantly fed so make sure and keep your head down as the parents make their approach flight!! This is the second year in a row that the same nest has been used so quite possibly the same parents.

The Garden View

The view from the bedroom windows is getting better every day as the garden bursts into colour. The lilac tree is looking great and the peony roses are just starting to bloom. The main roses have still a way to go yet but the new climbers on the patio trellis are taking off really well.
When you arrive why not check out the progress of my Kiwi plant which is growing up the wall of the Orchard Apartment. Last year in the greenhouse it grew 6 feet tall so I am looking for improvement outside this year.

Lazy Hot Summers are on their way

The BBC have predicted that we are all set for some lovely hot summer weather this year. So we at Folly Farm Cottage are looking forward to welcoming you and hope that you will be able to use the patio and barbecue area at the bottom of the garden.
The coals have been bought and all that is needed now is the food and you.
Come and visit soon and enjoy a peaceful relaxing pampering time.

The Sunny days are here

We are having some lovely weather here at the Cottage and the garden is really starting to take shape and colour after the winter. The magnolia tree which you can see from your bedroom window is looking quite stunning with the flowers in profusion.
Lindsey is spending a lot of time getting everything in shape so the next time you are here please make a point of wandering round the garden or having a seat on the patio.
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Spring has sprung!
Little lambs are gambolling in the fields, the daffodils are nodding and the sun is splitting the sky.

We are delighted to say that we can continue to offer complete luxury at prices that have not increased since 2006!

Lambing Season

The lambing season is now with us and the sights and sounds in the fields around the village are quite magical. Spring is definitely here now with the sun making some welcome appearances and the temperature is starting to rise.

We can't wait to get out in the garden and start getting it knocked into shape. We have already purchased some plants for the spring which are in the greenhouse at the moment and hopefully should be getting planted out quite soon.

Snowdrops in the Garden

Spring is only just around the corner despite the recent snowfalls. The garden is showing the first shoots of recovery with some lovely snowdrops pushing their heads up through the ground.

Why not come and join us for some spring cheer and enjoy a break in one of our Bed and Breakfast Suites.

We are still operating 2007 prices.
