Description

OUR HOME
We live on a small farm with 5 acres and stables and a barn. It is rural but has all the accommodations of a comfortable modern home.
House has 3 bedrooms, bathrooms and is detached.
1930s house, comfortable and spacious. We have Good Wi-Fi – We need a good connection for the external security cameras. I can show you how to put the app on your mobile phones so that you can keep an eye on the property and pets and go out to visit the local area.

OUR LOCATION
Near the edge of the small rural village of Freckenahm in West Suffolk East Anglia- near the village pub.
Isleham and Fordham the nearest villages are 2-3 miles away each, with shops and takeaways that deliver to our address.
Newmarket is 5 miles away, for shopping and amenities.

LOOKING FOR HOUSESITTERS
Ideal housesitters are pet lovers and would be a couple who are happy to care for animals in rural locations. I have a friend who stables her horse with mine and cares for them in the day, so most of the work for the horses and ponies is covered. I need someone to oversee them at night and care for my other pets. They are all rescue pets and in good health –

OUR PETS
4 horses – 3 horses are mine – 1 retired race horse, and 2 Welsh ponies. Plus check on my friends horse (Gracie) at night.
3 dogs – live in the house (Jack Russel and Westie crosses).
2 goats – very easy care.

PLEASE NOTE
My close friend who manages the majority of horse care because she keeps Gracie her horse there, is available to support you.
The very good pub at the bottom of the road offers excellent food.

LOCAL HISTORY – The village of Freckenham village is long and fascinating. Surrounded by three Fens and the history goes back to the Neolithic era. LINK https://freckenham.suffolk.cloud/history-of-freckenham/
