Idyllic 16th century country cottage with amazing Poodles
Hello there, we are Donna & Georgie - a lovely married lesbian couple living the country life with our much loved fur kids and poultry.
We would like to meet a potential sitter to look after the place and pets whilst we are away. We love this idea because our dogs get to stay in their own familiar environment and that’s peace of mind for both of us....
This is a beautiful quiet area to stay and very relaxing indeed. + More info
Our Home & Location
Our home is an idyllic 16th century cottage 25min north of Bedford in North Bedfordshire.
It is surrounded by farmland and a cow field....
It’s fairly isolated and you will need a car. There is a bus that goes passed the front gate but I’ve never used it.
There is a small shop in Riseley for everyday essentials and a fabulous pub called “The Fox & Hounds” great place to eat out - 5 min down the road.
There is a bigger shop north of us in Kimbolton “Budgens” which is 10 min drive along with a few shops and a fish & chip van on Friday evenings! Kimbolton Castle which used to house Cathrine of Aragon is stunning and is now a private school.
The city of Bedford is 20min drive south and has large stores and and everything you need.
Beautiful driving around the area and seeing all the quaint villages. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs will need feeding twice a day morning & evenings. They have an electric water filter drinkwell that needs filling up regularly.
The chickens & ducks get fed & let out in the morning, they put themselves to bed but you have to be vigilant with the fox’s around and not leave it too late to shut them in! We’ve lost a few chickens and a duck to the Fox this year!...
The plants need watering, we are avid gardeners and love our garden, if it’s raining then you don’t have to water.
The dogs don’t have to go for walks as there is 2 acres for them to run around, but if you want to they have their leashes in the boot room. + More info
