Doggie Problems

Our poor wee dog, Meisie, has had to have a couple of trips to the vet in the last couple of weeks. She ended up having to have a complete hysterectomy carried out and was left quite shaken by the whole event.
The total indignity of having to wear a big plastic collar to stop her scratching at her stitches did not help much to restore her good nature. However after only a day or so she was back to her normal self wandering around the garden and sometimes even greeting guests in the car park.

Fruit Abundance

This is the ideal time of year to pay a visit to Folly Farm Cottage. Not just because the weather is so warm or that the garden is so pretty but because there is an abundance of fruit available fresh from the garden and the greenhouse for consumption at breakfast time.

We have apples, pears and plums from the trees in the garden and a vast supply of tomatoes from the greenhouse.

Why not come and pay us a visit while these delicious offerings are available and have a very healthy breakfast. Alternatively you could still have the Folly Challenge but take a piece of fruit away with you for later in the day.

Excellence Award from Tripadvisor

We are delighted to announce that we have received an Excellence award from Tripadvisor, the online review site for B&Bs and hotels. TripAdvisor awards this certificate to properties who consistently receive excellent ratings from their members. They think our 5 rating is something to be proud of and we agree entirely.
We would like to thank all of our guests for their kind comments both on Tripadvisor and in our own guestbook in the reception. We really appreciate the time that you take to add a few words. It means a lot to the three of us.
Thanks again from Bruce, Pam and Lindsey.

New Moon over the Rose Suite

We had the chance recently to get a lovely photograph of the cottage from the back garden with a new moon just over the roof and the light on in the Rose Suite. The magnolia tree in the back garden was also in full blossom which just adds to the picture.

Doesn't this picture make you want to come and pay us a visit? The weather has picked up really well now and the evenings are actually balmy too. When you take the walk round to either the Red Lion or the Howard Arms don't forget to take the torch that is provided in your room as we have no street lights in the village.

Spring is in the Air

The first signs of Spring are definitely here. The garden is full of green shoots from the bulbs pushing through in all of the borders. Already we have primroses, blue mini irises and snowdrops side by side.
We have had some lovely sunny days recently but there is still a bit of a chill in the air when the sun disappears. Out walking recently we saw the first lambs of the season which always lightens the heart.

RSC theatre to reopen

The Royal Shakespeare Company have now reopened the redeveloped main theatre in Stratford. Pam and I had the chance to get a free tour around the new theatre prior to any productions starting and even managed to have a meal in the rooftop restaurant.
Tickets are going on sale very soon for the first production which will be the 'Scottish Play' - also known as Macbeth. This production starts on the 16th April and should be well worth a visit. For more information on tickets and the rest of the programme just click on the link .
