Toby became quite the intrepid traveller. We had another long weekend away, this time to the Wyre Forest. And it really was in the middle of the forest. Just 2 properties, the other empty, no mobile phone signal and the landline didn’t work. We’d never been so cut off from civilisation.
Here’s the track along the bottom of the garden, it was really pretty!
Toby loved it though, and it was a magical place. We’d only just arrived and we saw a herd of deer running along the bottom of the garden! Our first day was beautiful and sunny, we had a walk through the forest and saw huge ants in a long line, busily running from one side of the path to the other.
I believe it’s one of the largest ancient forests in the country, and host to a huge array of wild animals, insects and birds.
Here’s Toby, waiting for dad.
The next day we took a drive into Ludlow, and instantly fell in love with it. It started to rain heavily, but we carried on exploring. It was our kind of place, beautiful old buildings, lots of little independent shops, and they have a great market. It’s also a great place if you’re a bit of a foodie.
We ended up at Ludlow Castle! One of the most beautiful settings I think we’ve ever seen. Chris went right to the top to get some stunning photos, which I hope you’ll love, it really is breathtaking!
And here’s one of Toby and I….
We had to admit defeat in the end and retreat back to the house, we were all absolutely soaking! We switched on a halogen heater, and that’s where Toby spent the rest of the day, drying off in the warm glow. He was one very contented dog!
The following day we travelled home, but we’d had a wonderful time, even if we did get wet! Having Toby there with us just made it all the more special!
Here’s a photo of cheeky Toby stealing a sweet wrapper!
So that was our weekend in the Wyre Forest.
Thank you for reading.
Bye for now…..
