We live in a lovely large village in Berkshire with access to lots of countryside but also mainlines to London (30/40m) and reading (7m). Henley is a 5m train ride as well as Ascot and Windsor aceessible by car or train.
We have a young collie/lab cross and a kitten who by the time of house sit will high be about 1yr old. They get on very well!
We have two double bedrooms, one single fold down in the office, a kitchen diner and a lounge. We have a large garden to enjoy - and are close to a park and many country walks.
