Farnham is one of the prettiest villages in Dorset, United Kingdom with a fabulous pub, The Museum, and numerous things to see and do in the area.

For this assignment I am living in a beautiful character thatched 400 year old farmhouse complete with a wonderful menagerie.

This includes two beautiful cats, a fabulously adorable Greyhound “Morticia” who is affectionatly referred to as “Tisha”…

Now there’s also 10 Hens,  Kenny the Cockeral and wait for it…. to complete the enterage we have a Tortoise and even a pet Python snake.  Yes, you read correctly… a Python who’s name is “Trinket”.




All in all, one very happy family and little wonder as this is one very beautiful farmhouse in the most picturesque locations.

The only thing more picturesque than the farmhouse is it’s beautiful country garden and the magnificent country walks available on your doorstep.  Yes, miles of spectacularly colourful undulating countryside…. a photographers paradise!!

What the Owner Had to Say ….

Anthony was completely fabulous. Totally unfazed by the menagerie or our idiosyncratic 400 year old house.

All my animals adored him from the minute he walked through the door, including a normally very shy cat.

He took his role really seriously, was totally diligent, left the house immaculate with food in the fridge and flowers to come home too, and kept in touch while we were away.

What more could you ask for?

Would have him back like a shot,

thanks Anthony.
