Hi. I am looking for someone to to house sit my home in North Devon whilst away on holiday with my 2 children from Monday 25th July to Sat 6th August 2016.  I live in a beautiful farmhouse with 1 very kind and gentle 8 year old dog, 1 very sweet and friendly 6 month old Springer Spaniel Puppy, a ridiculously friendly cat, and 2 pygmy goats who like to be taken for a walk on a lead from time to time (not essential!). My home has its origins in the eighteenth century - and still has original features - wooden floor, fireplaces and stone walls.

It is very comfortable, peaceful and looks out onto a great garden with fruit trees, vegetable patch - you're welcome to help yourself whilst here. It's situated near to Barnstaple and Torrington (around minutes from both), and is close to the sea and the big beaches of North Devon. Westward Ho! is 20 minutes away, Croyde, Putsborough and Saunton Sands between 30 to 40 minutes. There is the Tarka trail for cycling and walking on the flat, and wonderful coastal walking - I particularly love the stretch around Hartland Quay for swimming in deserted sandy coves at low tide (see photo of Coastal Path), also the Braunton Burrows Biosphere (see photo of Crow Point).

I honestly feel like I'm on holiday living in North Devon, even after living here for a good decade. This is a beautiful, peaceful place to come and spend a holiday in - I have a lovely home in which you can deeply relax, restore and recharge batteries, living on slow time, exploring farmers' market, walking countryside and coast alike, or just relaxing in my large garden (around 3/4 acre). I really hope that you might be interested in coming to stay. if so to: nooandjoo . Thank you and hope to hear from you!
