Lovely Victorian Apartment in South Devon with 2 beautiful and loving lurchers, mother and daughter.
Hi i'm a self employed holistic therapist and yoga teacher with a 17 yr old daughter. I love the beautiful Devon countryside with Dartmoor, South Devon coast and Dart valley on our doorstep. I work at some festivals and retreats so there are times that i have to leave my dogs behind which is tricky as they would hate kennels and to be away from home. They love cuddling up in the lounge beside the fire and are happy to chill out with some TLC , as well as enjoying fun walks in the local area.

Responsibilities & Pets
The two Lurcher dogs will need feeding, watering and walking. They like some dry food for breakfast which i will leave out along with some treats, their water topped up and a walk to do their business and have a little exercise. They enjoy a lunchtime stroll but can last out till the afternoon. Then some supper in the evening and a small walk before bed.
They enjoy strokes, cuddles and sofa time!...
They can go up in the garden with you but need supervising. There are some local walks along the river, around the steam railway grounds and gardens, local fields and walking paths up to the old church and caves. They are best on lead although they can run free in certain enclosed areas. + More info
