We are just wondering if you are interested in a house sit in South West England based in the historic village of Tolpuddle close to the town of Dorchester. This is Thomas Hardy country and his birth cottage and the Victorian house he built as a qualified architect are about 4 miles away. We are well placed for visits to the Jurassic coast which includes Lulworth Cove and Weymouth. Blandford Forum, Salisbury, Lyme Regis, Poole and Bournemouth are all close by.
We are looking for someone to look after our two and half-year-old retriever for the month of January This is by way of an inquiry at the moment and we are looking for someone who is flexible on dates because the trip to South America can only go ahead if we can find someone interested in this opportunity. The dates will be firmed up later but will definitely start and finish in January. This is a revised date from the one I originally advised as our plans have changed somewhat. I am travelling with my daughter as my wife will be staying at home. Her health is not too good and she would appreciate help with our dog especially with regard to morning and evening walking. In the middle of the day you would be free to explore the local and wider environment. It does require someone who is willing to use the house while my wife is present.
There is a super fast broadband connection giving wi fi throughout the house. It’s probably best to have a car, but there is a bus 187 that goes through the village at am and 2.30 am going to Dorchester and from where the buses go frequently to Weymouth, Bridport, Lyme Regis. The last bus back to Tolpuddle from Dorchester is 5.50pm although there is one that returns at 4 pm. The X51 runs to Exeter and the bus that goes to Blandford Forum and then onto Salisbury is the 9.20 am through the village.
There are so many country walks in the areas you would be spoilt for choice as the first one starts at the back of the house. You are quite welcome to come and stay before our departure so that you can be inducted into the routines of Dulcie.
