We have mountains to climb and stunning white coral sand beaches to explore. We often have people ask what the best time is to visit our area and September is definitely our recommendation!
Our house and its surroundings are rustic - wooden floors rather than carpets and heather, and gorse rather than manicured lawns and flower beds. You will hear stags roaring in the autumn!
The house has 3 bedrooms - 1 double, 1 double sofabed in the second bedroom/home office and 1 child bedroom with single bed. Broadband/Wifi (about 5-7mbps download speed). Sky TV. Washingmachine/tumble dryer. Dishwasher. Microwave. Gashob/Electric oven.
We heat the house with a multi-fuel stove - as handling open fires in a wooden house is a more involved task and responsibility we are ideally looking for sitters who have experience with this type of heating, although in September you will probably don't need a lot of it as our loghouse absorbs any heat from the sun very efficiently .
Please note it is essential to have a car, to get here and to get around locally! We only have one vehicle and are unable to leave it for sitters, so having your own or renting one is a necessity . We would also expect you to take the dogs in the car (and will provide sturdy covers for boot and back seats).

Needs and Animals

- 2 dogs

The cats are outdoor cats - they might bring in the odd mouse, or have ticks that need removing. We regularly worm them but again there is no guarantee that they aren't afflicted when we are away. Please be sure you are ok with this kind of 'rustic' pets.
We want sitters to keep in touch with us when we are away with emails/Facebook or WhatsApp and photos and messages about the wellbeing of the pets, but also their own
