Thatched property on the edge of Dartmoor with 15 acres
We are a retired couple with travel plans for various dates in 2018, February, March, April and June so far! However we have a lively German Pointer, 2 farm cats and 10 breeding ewes to consider. Also 2 thoroughbreds but they can be placed elsewhere.
Our Home & Location
We are situated at the end of a farm track but only 1.5m from Chagford village which has a vibrant community with 4 pubs, lovely cafes, chemist (and a recent Indian takeawa) We are a 10 minute walk through the woods from Gidleigh Park Hotel (Michelin 2 star). Chagford was recently awarded the Best Place in the Country to Live award by the Sunday Times. Fabulous walking with direct access to the moor from here. Brilliant neighbours always ready to help out. Tennis courts, swimming pool, cricket ground, running and fitness clubs all available in the village. We are half hour from Exeter or 15 mins from Okehampton with cinema and Waitrose.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility would be taking care of the dog who is pretty easy going but does need loads of walks. He is used to coming out riding and running with us on the moor so plenty of exercise is a must. The sheep merely need checking and feeding in the winter, and cats feeding. Horses are optional as they can go into livery. Mowing the lawn would be much appreciated and generally keeping an eye on bore hole water, electrics etc.
