South Devon UK
We are a retired couple who have recently moved to Devon. We don't like to leave our cats in a cattery because they get very anxious.
Our Home & Location
We live in a barn conversion within a small complex of former farm buildings on the outskirts of Modbury. The barn is 3 storey, the main living area being on the top floor. Your accommodation is a double bedroom with separate bath/shower room on the middle floor. There is parking either at ground floor or top floor level.
Modbury is a small town in the heart of the South Hams district which has a Co-op supermarket, post office, medical centre , dentist, pharmacy, butchers, bakery/delicatessen as well as cafes and pubs/restaurants. There is also a veterinary practice that we use.
There are many beautiful beaches nearby South Milton, Bantham, Thurlstone, Bigbury, Wembury, Bovisand to name a few. All are within 25 minutes by car. Burgh Island is a famous landmark on which sits an Art Deco hotel whose notable visitors have been Agatha Christie and Noel Coward. Further away are the resorts of Paignton, Torquay and Dartmouth.
Plymouth is 12 miles away which takes about 30 minutes by car; it provides theatre, national marine aquarium, maritime heritage sites and shopping facilities.
We are 5 miles from the edge of Dartmoor.
There are many National Trust places nearby including Overbecks, Saltram House, Buckland Abbey, Cotehele and Anthony on the South East Cornish border.
Property facilities include dishwasher, fridge, freezer, central heating, Neff oven and electric hob, microwave, toaster, food processor, washing machine and tumble dryer, tv and broadband.
Responsibilities & Pets
You will need to feed the cats twice daily, however if you are in the house at lunchtime they may request more food from you! You will need to top up their dry biscuits and top up or clean and provide fresh bottled water in their drinking fountain on a daily basis.
The cats use litter trays , one being positioned on each floor. Each litter tray will need cleaning at least twice daily as Missy has a habit of using the floor if her litter tray is dirty!
If very hot please water the pot plants adjacent to and opposite the front door....
Please enjoy your time in this beautiful part of Devon! + More info
