Robert & Rosalind Field
One of us is a retired academic and the other a landscape photographer (and this area is first-rate for photography!). We would feel much happier going away if we knew our devoted pets were being well cared for and have never been at ease with putting them in kennels.
Our Home & Location
Beckside is a comfortable, stone-built house with steps up to a large garden. It dates from c. 1780 in the floor of a valley surrounded by wooded hills with paths open to walkers (and a golf course!). Good pub in the village. The well-known Helmsley market town is within 7 miles on the B1363 with shops and amenities. Easy distance of Castle Howard, Rivaulx, North York Moors.
Responsibilities & Pets
Both dogs need two daily walks (the evening walk is short). Our rescue Labrador/Belgian Shepherd is a strong lad who is nervous around other dogs so needs care in handling, but is likely to become a firm friend. The cats (both good-tempered) need to be brought in at night Little Titus has three legs but gets around well.
