A sitter for Monty
We live in a large property near the centre of Bideford. We have previously run it as a guest house and more recently we have let it as a holiday home (see Holiday Cottages website --"The Mount " ) We have a delightful working cocker spaniel called Monty. He is very affectionate and eager to please (he is spoiled to death !! ).We are only three miles from beaches at Westward Ho! or Instow where we usually walk him.
The house is very spacious and there are lots of photos on the website. The sitter will be able to use one of the en suite bedrooms....
The garden is low maintenance but we would ask that the lawn is given a weekly mow . + More info
Our Home & Location
We live a few hundred yards from the centre of Bideford , a small town in North Devon. Bideford is situated near the mouth of the River Torridge about three miles from where it meets the sea. Bideford is on the South West Coast Footpath and we are only five or ten minutes from lovely beaches at Instow and Westward Ho!
Appledore and Clovelly (both attractive fishing ports)make for pleasant excursions. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor are less than an hour's drive....
The Tarka Trail is a disused railway line which runs from Bideford to Barnstaple in one direction and to Torrington and beyond in the other. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
To give Monty a couple of walks a day. He is fine in the car. He needs to be on a lead anywhere near sheep. He is very affectionate and good with both people and other dogs. He is happy to be left for up to 4/5 hours at a time.
