House, Buckhurst Hill Essex/London, 1 dog, 14 July + 16 nights
We live in Buckhurst Hill, a 5 minute walk to the Central Line tube station. Besides the attraction of London, we have the benefit of Epping Forest and many local woodlands and parks so if you like walking it is a fabulous location to go exploring. Local amenities include Waitrose a 5 minute walk and plenty of restaurants and coffee shops etc. Loughton is a 5 minute drive to Sainsburys, Marks and Spencer Food and a larger high street.
Our house is a semi detached town house – the design and layout of the house over 4 floors is such that there is plenty of space but lots of stairs. There is a lounge with wide screen TV on the first floor; kitchen, conservatory and family room are on the ground floor with the garden at the rear. The guest room on the second floor has its own ensuite with bath (shower over) and toilet and at the rear of house is very quiet.
Holly is an eight year old cavalier king charles spaniel. She is very well behaved with a lovely temperament and loves attention. She enjoys walks (or runs!) in local forest but will also be equally content with several shorter walks a day. Holly is a very quiet dog but will prefer sleeping in her basket in the bedroom with somebody – she will not be left downstairs by herself of a night time. She is however able to left indoors on her own during the day for reasonable periods of time.
