Description

We are looking for house sit from Friday 11 August lunchtime to Monday 21 August afternoon. We have a short weekend away and then away again from Tuesday 15 August, probably be easier to have someone stay the whole period. Please see more info below.

Our home and surroundings
We live on a small country lane and are surrounded by woodland and fields with a friendly neighbour on one side. We have direct access from our back garden into woodland, which is frequented by local dogwalkers, or you can just cross the lane and explore our own private woodlands and fields. During April and May, you will see the bluebells in their full glory, followed by the daisy field in June.

There is a large garden at the rear of the property that is completely secure for the dogs and has a large koi pond and natural swimming pool, we also have an outdoor eating area for those sunny days as well as a garden pavilion with heating for the cooler evenings.

The house is large with plenty of parking. The three guest rooms are all doubles with two en-suite and there is also a large family bathroom. We have a large kitchen with a breakfast bar, large dining table and sofa. During October-April we typically use the Everhot oven and for the rest of the year there is an induction hob and combi-oven. There is a separate dining room and a large sitting room with open wood fire, TV and bar. We also have two rooms we use to work in that are zoom friendly with desks etc. If at the end of the day dogs don’t wear you out, then you can make use of our small gym and sauna and then chill out to watch a film in the cinema room.
We do have WIFI but the speed, although plenty to stream movies and make zoom calls, is typically circa 7-8MB.
We have a cleaner visit every week.

Property Type: Large estate
Responsibilities: We have a family event on the Saturday with our son in Bristol and will be travelling home Sunday afternoon. Kevan then has a race in West Wales and will be travelling on Tuesday 15 August and back Monday 21 August. Gillian will be at home until Thursday 17 August when she will travel to Cambridge and then onto Wales to meet Kevan. We hope that this makes sense to have someone around for the whole time but obviously Monday-Wednesday she will look after the dogs giving you time to explore the area in more detail.
