We live on a working farm, I also do bed and breakfast but I don’t expect my house sitters to! We are mainly hops and cider apples, but also have a few sheep. We have lived here for 22 years
Our Home & Location
We live in a large farmhouse, with a walled garden and surrounded by Hop yards and apple orchards.
We have 3 bedrooms used by us and two ensuite bedrooms for the B and B....
The kitchen had an Aga
And the snug room has a Woodburner. The wood is kept very close but sitters need to be fairly fit to use a wheelbarrow every few day. We have central heating but it is too expensive to use for the main heating in winter.
We are 5 miles from Ledbury, + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We have 3 fox terriers, a bit of a pack really! Pip is Phins mother. They are all a bit spoilt and love sitting by the Aga . They need to be persuaded to go for walks, there is plenty of fields to walk around. the cat EdwArd just needs feeding as he sleeps most of the time.
The sheep will be sorted out by Martins brother, so they just need looking at over the hedge....
There is also a lake with carp fishing that I sell day tickets for. As we mainly go on holiday in the winter, the fishermen are few and far between, + More info
