Toby runs a property business and Anna works from home part-time as a Consultant. Their hobbies include, walking, fishing, tennis and they are regulars at the Fountains Abbey Saturday Parkrun! Further afield they enjoy skiing and travelling.
Our Home & Location
Our house overlooks the pretty village green which is surrounded by lovely older houses. We have private gardens and a big terrace outside the kitchen doors. We have a tennis court to use whenever you want. The friendly village pub is just around the corner and we have some good farmland walks from the house. We are just over a mile from the A1 so getting around is very easy. Both the Dales and the North York Moors National Parks are less than 30 minutes away and our dogs will be very grateful of some exploring with you. The Market towns of Bedale, Ripon and Masham are all 6 miles away. The town of Harrogate is about 35 minutes drive and York is 30 minutes. The Housesitter will be sleeping upstairs in our guest bedroom which has a king size bed (see photo) and has an ensuite bathroom. There is a separate bathroom with shower available to use in the family bathroom if you prefer. The sitting room is cosy with an open fire and we will provide logs for you. The kitchen has an Aga as well as a separate hob and electric oven. We have a good wifi connection and a SMART TV and a Sonos sound system.
Responsibilities & Pets
Tinker, our 6 year old Working Cocker Spaniel is extremely well trained and gentle. She will need 2 walks a day as well as morning and evening meals. Belle is our cute little puppy so will spend most of her time in the cage in the utility room but she will need 3 meals a day and a pee stop every 3 hours or so. The cage fits in a car boot easily so if you fancy a drive and an explore in the National Parks, Tinker would love to come with you and Belle will stay in the cage in your car very happily.
The house will have been cleaned before your arrival and our cleaner will come half way through your stay if requested. There is absolutely no need to do so but any keen gardeners are welcome to do as much weeding as they want!
