There is a main house consisting of 5 bedrooms, a 2 bed self-contained apartment (all with en-suite bathrooms), a 2 bed cottage, as well as converted stables on the grounds. You will be needed to split your time between these buildings; however, the focus will be the well-used areas such as the kitchen, master bedroom/en-suite and guest toilet.
The clients are a professional couple, there are no children but the client’s mother visits often.
They have 2 small dogs, 4 chickens and a feral cat. In the garden area there are wild ducks and swans which the gardener takes care of, except on Thursdays and weekends.
