Sophie, the blue-eyed rag doll cat and Toby, the maltese cavalier cross dog, invite you to share their home.

Sophie (one year old) runs the household. Toby (ten years old) likes to sleep in a little bit now and then. Sometimes his hair gets a bit long for the York garden and so he has to be clipped – after which he uses his charm to beg favours from guests.

They will ensure that Phil and Sandra, their home help, provide you with individualised care and attention, a delicious breakfast of fresh and poached fruits, gourmet muesli, yoghurt and juices, and afternoon teas on request.

From the coop, the chickens will provide a dozen fresh laid eggs each day so that you can finish with a full cooked breakfast, home made breads, a selection of teas and plunger coffee.

Relax and enjoy.
