Live a rural dream
We need a mature, experienced couple to love our Dartmoor smallholding in our absence. A wilful cat, an adorable but elderly hound, a few chickens, a small flock of sheep and two horses would also appreciate affection and some feeding. If you enjoy walking on Dartmoor and appreciate mediaeval farmhouses then this is the place for you. If you ride, then bring your own horses and enjoy some of the best riding in Britain – lots of turnout space.
Our Home & Location
We have a beautiful, rambling ancient farmhouse with modern kitchen and Aga, totally private but not isolated. Spacious gardens, ponds, several granite barns, nine acres of fields and woodland and with direct access to the moor. Located just outside a beautiful village with two pubs and a shop, only a short drive to two nearby towns.
Responsibilities & Pets
Feed and clean out chickens, collect eggs and eat them, count the sheep daily and sleep well, spoil the cat and dog and keep the wild bird feeders topped up. Collect and eat fruit and veg from garden and attend to the garden where appropriate (powered mower available) . If an experienced rider we could discuss exercising the horses.
