Lola and Scampi invite you to look after them in their quirky city centre house.
Rob and I have been living in the cathedral city of Ripon for nearly 3 years after a long stint in the countryside near Fountains Abbey. Rob is semi retired (I've yet to see him put his feet up!) following a career in commercial horticulture and college lecturing and I work in a local school following a career in Human Resources. We both enjoy transforming neglected gardens, walking ofcourse and Rob is re learning how to paint.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located 5 minutes walk from the centre of Ripon, a beautiful cathedral city which has a host of things going on. Great pubs, restaurants, shops, museums and even has its own cinema. Everything on the doorstep. The Yorkshire Dales are within close proximity and you can catch a local bus to almost anywhere from the centre of Ripon. Masham is one of our favourites, a typical small Yorkshire market town with a wide open square surrounded by cafe's, local art galleries, delicatessan and other food shops. It even has its own gin distillery. Whats not to love?
Responsibilities & Pets
Lola is a boisterous black Sprocker Spaniel who loves to be walked twice a day and sometimes a swim in the river, both Scampi and Lola are fed in the morning and in the evening. Lola especially loves a cuddle or two and always loves playing. Scampi is pretty much self sufficient but will come to you for attention when she requires it! They both sleep indoors but occasionally when the weather is good, Scampi will stay outside.
