We have an old mill house with beutiful but bit overgrown garden.We are 45mins on the train from London and about 20mins from Greenwich and Rochesterboth with alot of history and events.
We have a dog and a cat. There are several walks very locally including a beutiful lake and river walk. There is also a park very closeby. The town with theatre and train station are both easily walkable. There is a fast track bus to a huge indoor shopping centre called Bluewater with cinemas and restaurants etc.
My children are now living away and so it would help us to get the house looked after while we have extended visits with them and also I am hoping to have a long trip away in the early spring to coincide with a friends wedding.
The heating in the winter is bit of an issue as the house quite big a draughty and we will perhaps have to come to an arrangement if more than basic morning and evening heating is required.
For extended trips it would be helpful to mow the lawn and in summer to water to water the vegetable garden which you are welcome to eat from if there is anything in season.
Look forward to making new friends and having adventures.
