House sitting for two miniature daschunds, a springador and a Labrador as well as some chickens, ducks and a cat
We are a middle aged couple with three grown up children (all have now let home!) and have now retired to the beautiful South Hams. We spent four years renovating our home and are now tackling the garden.
Our Home & Location
Our home is just between Yealmpton and Newton Ferrers. These villages both have local shops and Riverford organic shop is in Yealmpton. We are pretty secluded but not isolated. We are only a mile and a quarter from the sea and there are lots of lovely walks around. Plymouth is just 20 minutes away (cinema and restaurants galore). You definitely need a car to get you around. We run pilates classes several times a week (not at weekends) so there are always people coming and going but they don't affect the views from the house and garden.
Responsibilities & Pets
We have four dogs that we walk three times a day - morning, lunchtime and afternoon. They all get along but one dachshund can be territorial over his food and attention! We also have various chickens and ducks that need water and food but are kept in a fox proof pen so don't need putting to bed.
