Oswaldkirk, North Yorkshire: House sit #4.

Oh my goodness! What a beautiful spot! What a beautiful house! What a wonderful house sit to finish with! I am so blessed!
Oswaldkirk is a tiny village not too far north of York, near Thirsk ( of James Herriot fame) and near Goathland, of Heartbeat fame. ( was Aidensfield) and it is beautiful. A week or so prior to me arriving, the owners here had 1 of their dear doggies put to rest as she had tumours , so I only have 1 quiet, well behaved, 10 year old Lab to look after. Her name is Orchy ( pronounced Orkey) and she’s very sweet! We go for a walk everyday in a nearby woods/Lake area that is also stunning!

Rose Cottage is the name of where I am staying and it is mostly 18th century, with newer additions, and wonderfully renovated. It’s actually older than European settlement in Australia! Here’s some photos!

Then there’s the interior……an English country kitchen, complete with Aga! I have my own “suite” complete with bathroom, and then there’s 2 floors of gorgeous, country, upper middle class, comfortable family home!
And both a cleaner and a gardener comes so my only real task is to keep Orchy happy, fed and exercised!

I have a few blogs to catch up from my adventures last week, but just wanted you all to know I’m safely ( and happily ) settled in North Yorkshire!
I hope you noticed the sweet little hire car I have……a Fiat 500! Very small, but very good….lots of better features than my last car, for no extra money! Blessed, yet again!
