Beautiful rural village location near Cardiff
We are a couple in our 60s with 2 horses, 2 dogs and 2 cats. We have a large 5 bedroomed house with 5.5 acres in a rural location, with splendid views, but it's only 14 miles from Cardiff . We live on the outskirts of a pretty village and have great neighbours who can look after our animals for an occasional day. Now we need a longer arrangement. We are experienced house exchangers (USA and France) but pet sitting is fairly new to us! Our animal family would much prefer to stay at home!
Our Home & Location
5 bedroomed house with WiFi, 3 en-suite bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are TVs in all the bedrooms as we occasionally do some B&B. There is also a stairlift.
We have 5.5 acres of land and wonderful views and local walks. The attractive market town of Cowbridge is 2 miles away. Good local pubs and restaurants. 6 Miles to the nearest beach and 14 miles to Cardiff. Cardiff airport is about 7 miles away. You would need a car here.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dogs are a very easy 12 year old Jack Russell terrier (Mostyn) and a 6 year old Chocolate Labrador. (Choppy) Moss is a gentle friendly boy who likes a cuddle. Choppy is an exuberant teenager who loves to chase a ball.
The dogs like morning and evening walks. Bertie and Ruby, our cats, are pedigree British Blues, beautiful and a great characters (usually join the dogs for their walks!!!). Both are spayed....
We have 2 Welsh Cob ponies: Annie and Siri. They are a great ride and we have tack for both of them. Annie needs a daily carrot with her Cushings medication but this is not difficult to administer. + More info
