South East Cornwall
Charles is a retired Naval doctor. We both sail, and have three daughters who all live abroad, Oman, Darwin, and British Columbia in Canada, and we like to visit them whenever possible.
Our Home & Location
We bought our house as three and a half walls and no roof over 40 years ago, It’s a country house surrounded by fields, not a modern dust free, spic and span house! Someone comes once a week to help in the house, and also someone helps in the garden once a week. I am in charge of flowers and my husbands does the vegetables in a large walled garden which we revived. We are situated in the heart of the countryside. There are quite a few walks, the river Tamar is down three fields, Saltash and Callington are 5 miles away, but there are no buses.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs need love, attention and walks. The house and garden are puppy proof. Pip the JR is old and pretty deaf, so we walk her on a lead so she doesn’t wander off. Sula is very much a youngster, who we have discovered is hard of hearing, therefore difficult to train, and must always be on a lead for walks. The vegetables and fruit in orchard, depending on the time of year, will require watering, picking and eating. The lawn may require to be mown, we have a sit on mower.
