Country Cottage in Oxfordshire: 2 Springer Spaniels, 1 boarder terrorist and 2 Horses at grass
We are both self employed, I run a Horse Rug Laundry business from my home and we also have an engineering business close by. I am currently enjoying riding my horse and competing in Dressage. My Husband likes Motorsport. We have two daughters who now live away from home. We have lived in our home for over 30 years, mainly because we could not find anywhere to match the open aspect and lovely surrounding countryside that we enjoy here.
Our Home & Location
Our cottage is situated between two villages so a car is essential. We are about 20 mins North West of Bicester, where there is the world renowned shopping experience Bicester Village. We are about 30/40 mins from Oxford, just 15/20 mins from Blenheim Palace Woodstock. A short drive and you are in the Cotswolds.
Responsibilities & Pets
We need sitters to look after our home our 3 dogs and 2 horses (at grass, no mucking out). The dogs need a walk at least twice a day, there are lots of places to explore on the neighbouring farm The dogs are all fairly well trained and will walk with you without a lead in the surrounding fields. The springers are very energetic but know not to wonder too far away. They have very good recall. Also to check on my horses twice a day, moving electric fence to give them more grass (I normally combine with walking the dogs. There may also be some watering to do in the garden. The dogs are all very friendly and enjoy a play in the garden, they will retrieve a dummy, sit stay and search for hidden toys. They also love to have lots of attention but will equally be good when they are put in their Kennel. Chisel is a house dog and loves lots of cuddles. I do have some support locally should you like to take a long day away exploring the area.
