Short stay by mill pond with abundance of wild life...plus our 8 month old labradoodle and Mona the cat.
We are an oldish married couple, Bill and Susan. I am semi retired and my wife is a solicitor with an environmental consultancy. We have a house in Portugal so go there a couple of times a year plus visit the USA once a year to see family
Our Home & Location
The house is detached in a large plot. The back of the house looks over a mill pond with a wooded area beyond. In the last couple of months we have seen otters, mandarin ducks, ring neck ducks, kingfisher, dippers, roe deer and a host of other birds. The house is comfortable with three large bedrooms, two bathrooms, a games room with a full sized snooker table, which you are welcome to use. We are surrounded by lovely countryside with some great walks...one to the local pub!
Responsibilities & Pets
Mona only occasionally ventures outside so her litter tray needs refreshing every few days. She likes you to play with her a few times a day so she can 'catch' a feather on a stick. She is easily amused!
Blue has been to puppy school and is pretty well behaved and not destructive. She loves meeting other dogs and people but has a tendency to jump up and get over excited. We walk her twice a day. In the morning for about 30 minutes and in the afternoon for about 30-60 minutes. We spend 5-10 minutes a couple of times a day teaching/reinforcing basics like getting her to fetch/return balls, leave food, come commands etc.
