2 lovely dogs looking for company over Christmas and New Year in rural East Lothian
We live on a farm in beautiful, rural East Lothian, approx 1 mile from the village of Humbie, 18 miles from Edinburgh. There is lots to do in this area - walking, cycling, beaches and, of course, Edinburgh is only 40 minutes away. The Scottish Borders are also within very easy reach. If you want a peaceful, quiet time with magnificent views, we are the right place! We are looking for someone to look after our lovely dogs for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Year.
Our Home & Location
We have a large farmhouse with plenty of room. TV, wifi etc, an Aga, large spacious kitchen with conservatory, generous bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. The house is very cosy, with underfloor heating, plenty of hot water etc, no matter what the weather is like outside. You will need a car to get out and about. The market town of Haddington is 8 miles away and has everything you need from supermarkets to the best hardware store I've ever visited!
Responsibilities & Pets
We have two lovely German Shorthaired Pointers, mother and son. Ava is very well behaved and a lovely gentle girl, Otto is only 7 months old at the moment so has lots of energy but is very biddable and proving to be a laid back well behaved boy. Both incredibly friendly and used to children, horses etc. They need walked twice a day for about 45 mins, happy to be left at home for up to 4 hours a day. We also have horses on the farm so there is the opportunity to help look after them if you wanted to get involved - feeding or just patting and carrot-giving. However, you don't have to have anything to do with the horses if you would rather not, just admire them grazing in front of the house!
