General description

  • Main home
A very comfortable restored old farmhouse located 5 minutes drive from Blenheim surrounded by an extensive garden and 35 hectares of vineyards. Our dogs are 13 year old Bichon, Daisy, Dustin who is a 3 year Jack Russell and our baby 2 year old Spoodle Dot. They are very well behaved and socialised. As we live and work on the farm they are used to company and plenty of walks. We prefer not to leave them at home for extended periods of time - 2 to 3 hours is the usual maximum. As the property is a very pleasant place to hang out this doesn't usually cause our sitters any problems.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • 3 dogs
  • Farm animals
The dogs need walking morning and evening. They'll be really happy if you fit in a third walk or some ball throwing. We have chickens which need feeding only on the weekends. As we are a working farm there will be staff members around and some will need access to the house and we have someone who does the housework. It's a very friendly crew. As mentioned the dogs are very used to being with people and don't cope well if left alone for too long.
