  • Description


    We live on a small lakeside estate . We have some dogs which need looking after when we are away. There are always small jobs around the place , gardening , watering tunnel, painting , and pruning. My wife and I enjoy country life , we keep Falabellas, small horses and some Labradors.We have no garden only deciduous forestry as the fallow deer ate our plants …😂
    We are only interested in taking financially independent couples , without any accompanying children or animals and usually prefer longer term , minimum three month arrangements.
