We live in the delightful town of Stamford, known as the finest stone town in England. Stamford was no. 1 in the Times Best Places to Live a few years ago. We are close to the town centre and Burghley House, where the famous Burghley Horse Trials take place in September.
We have two mini schnauzers, Rosie and Benni, but they will be coming on holiday with us in September....
We have eight beautiful hens who need locking in at night and an early morning greeting, feeding once or twice a day and they will repay you with fresh eggs everyday and lots of fun. + More info
Our Home & Location
Chalet bungalow (3 bedrooms) in lovely terraced gardens in the beautiful town of Stamford. There are lots of local places to visit, and Burghley House is within walking distance. Rutland Water is about five miles away, with many outdoor pursuits such as sailing, fishing, walking, bird watching and many little pubs and restaurants and we are on the bus and train routes locally and to Peterborough and London ( and anywhere). Oakham is also a short bus/train ride away with its old Castle and market. Stamford is a beautiful, historic town and easy walking distance from our home with lots of unusual shops to browse in. We have a lovely sunny guest bedroom and bathroom which will be your home from home, and you will have full use of the house and garden while you are here. (There is lots of gardening to do but you are not expected to do that!!)
Responsibilities & Pets
We have eight laying hens, who require feeding and watering, locking up at night and opening up in the mornings. We have Koi fish in the two garden ponds and in a small indoor aquarium but they require very little attention.
