Description

LOCATION
A rural track off a country lane leads to our 16th century stone built cottage. It is set within 5 acres of land with views to faraway hills. The village is in rural Herefordshire in the UK. A main road, reached by the lane leads to country towns or nearby county city. 6-9 miles. Many places of interest to visit, such as Hampton Court Castle, which is close by. Leominster is the nearest large town. As a market town it dates back to the Middle Ages and offers lots to see and do.

OUR PETS
A flock of ducks, divided into 3 groups potter around during the day. There are some in our orchard, some in the garden and duck paddock. They sleep in duck houses at night. They are fed am & pm. Moby Duck, Whippy & Darth Vader are the drakes. All are friendly.
Our cat Ratty (Ratatouille) sleeps in the kitchen, where a wood burner provides cosy heat. He loves people.
Rhoda the hen lives in a barn when not pottering during the day.

Puddles and Pals’ a small flock of happy ducks, Ratatouille (Ratty) the very friendly cat & Rhoda the hen look forward to being cared for by person who enjoys rural life with nearby town facilities.
