Looking forward to May - and fingers crossed for sunshine
The prospect of welcoming guests back to Bank House in May has really put a spring in my step. While of course there are downsides to running a B&B (mountains of laundry/ early mornings etc.) I’ve really missed having people to stay, the conversations and the baking – I can’t wait to get back to it all.
In common with others I’ve spent quite a lot of lockdown perfecting my sourdough baking. The plan (possibly ambitious) will be to provide perfect toast every morning. Whatever the outcome there will be no lack of Bank House marmalade –that was all sorted in January and I now have a stockpile worthy of Paddington.
But it’s not been all work, work, work and we’ve found time for a bit of local exploration. A recent adventure involved a short drive to Church Stretton to walk Caer Caradoc and the Lawley – a classic Shropshire route. It was a fabulous day with great views across the plain to Shrewsbury and to the Wrekin. Next week I’ll be venturing into Wales to visit the Dingle Nursery near Welshpool for some serious plant shopping – one of my favourite things.
I hope you like the new website and my new blog. I’m looking forward to providing a regular update on things coming up at Bank House and in Bishop’s Castle. If you would like to keep in touch please sign up for my newsletter here.
