Lots to see and do and a lovely home and dog
I am retired, and live alone with Molly the Collie. My son and his family have moved to Italy and are no longer able to care for Molly when I go away and can’t take her with me. I like to visit friends and family in the UK and abroad, and my travelling is often for short breaks.
Our Home & Location
I live in Newport on Tay, a large village over the river from Dundee. There are local shops, pubs and restaurant/cafés within a five minute walk, and there is a park, private estate and nature trail near the house for walking. There are fantastic sandy beaches and forests about twenty minutes drive away. Dundee has the new V&A museum which opened in September, Robert Scott’s Discovery and good shops, supermarkets and cinemas. St Andrews, the home of golf, is only 11 miles away. A car is not essential as there are buses to Dundee, but preferable for visiting surrounding areas. Nearest rail stations are Dundee and Leuchars.
The house is Victorian, with fantastic views over the river to Dundee. It has 4 bedrooms, a living room, dining room and large kitchen. Bathroom has walk-in shower (no bath) and there is a cloakroom/shower on the ground floor. It has many original features. There is a washing machine, drier, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer etc. I do not have smart TV, but there is broadband. There is a small sunny garden....
The house does not have level access but only a few shallow steps at front door. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Molly is a eight year old Collie. She has a short walk in the morning, about 20 mins, and a longer walk in the afternoon. She is very friendly, though barks when new people come to the house until she is properly introduced. She is well trained apart from the barking, and really very easy to look after. She is timid with other dogs.
At certain times of year, garden watering might be required, and on a longer sit, houseplant watering.
