South Devon farm house
I am a physiotherapist, my husband is a surveyor and we have had our first baby this year . We occasionally leave our beautiful home and need someone to stay and take care of our two energetic, friendly and gun trained spaniels as well as our two lovely horses.
Our Home & Location
We live in the stunning South Hams only minutes from beautiful beaches and coves, bracing coastal walks and cosy pubs. We are nestled in the Prawle peninsula with the busy town of Kingsbridge 15 minutes away. Here there are independent shops lining the high street as well as the convenience of two supermarkets. Salcombe is about a 30 minute drive or boat trip from East Portlemouth which is a great day trip.
We have plenty of great local pubs and cafes that can be combined with walks....
The farm house is 1700's and full of character, it is set in pretty courtyard with stables, outbuilding and further annexed accommodation. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our two dogs are a pleasure to look after, both well trained but super active and LOVE walking and swimming. But, also love a cuddle by the fire in the evenings. They will need breakfast between 7 and 8 am and supper between 5 and 6 pm but flexible if need be. They will need at least a full hours walk a day with further time outside in our garden.
The horses are part stabled so during the winter will be out during the day and in at night. They will need to be fed in the same time frame as the dogs. The stables will need mucked out every morning after turn out and skipped out when checked late at night. Water and Hay will need replenished and checked a couple of times a day. They will need to be checked over and brushed off and hooves picked out once a day as well as rugs changed as appropriate. Also plenty of chat and affection obviously!...
The field may or may not need skipping out, depending on length of stay. + More info
