House & Animal sitting
We are going on holiday to Greece and need someone to look after the house and pets! Our two dogs are lively but pretty well behaved with good recall. The cats do their own thing of course as do the chickens, and the reptile lives in a locked vivarium so you wouldn't have to handle him if you didn't want, just check his water daily.
Our Home & Location
Come and explore the Kingdom of Fife!
We are located in a beautiful rural setting just 14 miles from St. Andrews, with Edinburgh, Perth & Dundee within an hour's journey by car or train. Lots to see and do in the area from Falkland village with its historic palace, Georgian Cupar which is the historic centre of Fife, St. Andrews needs no introduction, and the picturesque coastal villages of Pittenweem, St. Monans, Elie, and Anstruther with its Fishing Museum are delightful to visit. Experience fish and chips, locally caught and freshly cooked, farmers markets on a Saturday and Bowhouse has a huge foodie market once a month or so....
There are plenty of walks from the house, the Lomond Hills are not far away for long rambles and of course the beaches of the Fife Coast are world renowned. Film fans may remember the runners on the long beach in Chariots of Fire (1981) - that's West Sands at St. Andrews! And it's a great film if you haven't seen it yet.
We live in a large retro house with an Aga and a log burning stove in the sitting room (which you shouldn't need in August!). Sliding doors from the sitting room open onto the lawn and flower beds of the walled garden, and there is a tennis court just beyond. You will need a car to get about to the shops or the station. + More info
