The Old Thatch, Nether Wallop
The family consists of a family of 4 - myself (Nicola), Andrew, teenager daughter Helena & nearly teenage son Henry. The family is complimented by 2 cats (Harrison & Hamilton), and 2 dogs - Hettie, a fox red lab, and Harriet, our quintessential chocolate lab.
In the past the dogs have gone to dog sitters and the cats have remained at home however we feel that collectively they would be happier all around by staying in their own four walls. And we feel more at ease too.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a 16th century thatched cottage in the heart of the English countryside - approx 20 mins drive from Winchester or Salisbury - two very historic cities in England.
Stonehenge is 25 minutes away from our home, and even places like Bath & London are easily accessible from our house, with a main line train station being only 8 mins drive away.
The house itself is situated in the picturesque village of Nether Wallop, famously mentioned in Bill Bryson's book "Notes from a small island". The Old Thatch is thought to date back to the mid 16th century but at present houses a family of 4 plus 2 cats & 2 dogs. The property adjoins a babbling brook and is situated in the very heart of the village, which used to boast 2 pubs, but sadly we only only one left....
The pretty town of Stockbridge is a few miles down the road and boasts a number of fantastic little shops including a wonderful deli, incredible butchers, wine shops and a fair number of eateries. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Dogs: we tend to take the dogs for a walk every day. There are nice paths to go along in the village and some nice places further afield. As for feeding: We feed them in the morning & evenings. Food of course would be provided!
Cats: The only thing needed with the cats is feeding them. They are fed twice a day - in the morning & evenings, and of course food for them would be provided too.
