I am looking for a couple to look after my three Border Collies and one cat from June 6th-20th. I live on the borders of Dorset and Devon high up on the hills near the sea. My house is a beautiful cottage with spectacular views across the Marshwood Vale and down to the sea. It is warm and comfortable with a large beautiful garden. It is all on its own with only sheep and cows for  neighbours and the dogs can be walked straight from the house. There is an iron age hillfort right behind owned by the National Trust which dates back to1000BC. I have gardeners who come every week but there will be some watering of pots and greenhouse if the weather is hot. The garden is large and fenced so the dogs cannot get out, when you leave them to go exploring. There is a lovely large kitchen/snug with a woodburner and an Aga to cook on. There are 3 bedrooms, two sitting rooms and two bathrooms, all light and comfortable.

The sea area here is the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage site and the cliff path is wonderful walking, as are many public footpaths across the vale.

You do need to be a real country and animal lover as the house is all on its own and your own transport is essential as there is no public transport passing by. 

My dogs are very friendly and used to being looked after by other people as I have used housesitters for many years. They have all loved being here and I have made lasting friends with several who come back. I do like to overlap for 24 hours to explain what to do and I have family around for advice if needed.
