House sitting at the foot of the south downs
We recently moved into this house , finally acquiring our long sought after bit of land. This meant we could move our chickens with us and get some sheep. This added to the household of 2 children and a cat and dog ( and bees). And now we have added 2 kittens to the family as well. We all love the outdoors and so spent most of our time outside in our lovely plot!
Our Home & Location
Our house is situated between Thakeham and Storrington in West Sussex. Thakeham has a lovely pub that we regularly walk to and Storrington has all the necessary amenities.
With the South Downs at a stones throw we are often out for a walk. But if we feel more like a bit of culture and beach then we head to Brighton which is only 30 mins drive away....
Our house was originally built in the 1600's, but has since been extended in different periods. This makes it a unique mix of all sorts.
It has 3 bedrooms and an office and we have built a cabin in the garden for any friends and family that would like to stay.
As it is a rural location you will need a car to get anywhere. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
When you come and stay at our house we would like you to look after our chickens and ducks. They need their daily dinner and can be let out of their run but will need locking up in the night then. At the moment we are reseeding the fields and the sheep are not there but if they come back to our home then they will need a daily check.
The cat comes and goes as she pleases, all she asks for is a bowl full of food. The kittens will want food but most importantly a little play....
The bees look after themselves, but there will be honey to taste!
We do have a dog but she sometimes comes with us and so might not always be there. + More info
