Country location with 2 resident labradors, 2 cats, 2 chickens and 4 ducks need you!
We live in an old farmhouse set on the edge of a beautiful common. We have a two very friendly Labradors (Barnaby, age 11 and Apollo, age 3), two ridiculously soppy cats (Pippin and Easter, both 7) and chickens and ducks who should keep you supplied with fresh eggs.
It is a beautiful location for a holiday - lots of fresh country air and space to roam.
Our Home & Location
The house is large with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, den and lounge / dining room and lots of outdoor space. We have satellite TV, wi-fi and all the home comforts you could reasonably expect including a lovely wood-burning stove in the lounge to keep you toasty warm when it's cold outside.
Being in the middle of the countryside there is plenty of opportunity for country walks and it is very peaceful but there are no local shops. The nearest is the village of Hawkesbury Upton (about 1.5 miles away, uphill) which has a small village shop, pub and post office. However, the town of Chipping Sodbury is only 4 miles away which has some nice little shops and a supermarket (Waitrose) and we are a 30-40 minute drive from both Bath and Bristol which are both lovely cities to explore.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for someone to live in our house and love our animals whilst we are on holiday. It's actually fairly easy as, being in the countryside the dogs tend to walk themselves (although they love it if you want to go with them) and the cats come and go as they please. But they need to be fed twice a day, the eggs need to be collected once a day and they all need some cuddles and love.
