  • Moving home with your pet

    Dog Moving Home

    We’ve teamed up with Kingsway Vets in Skipton to give our new homeowners some advice on moving home with their pets. 

    Bob Pettit of Kingsway gives his top tips…

    Moving house is a stressful time for everyone including your four legged friends, but responsible pet owners can take steps to help their companions cope. Your pets don’t have the benefit of understanding why it’s happening so the disruption is even more distressing for them as everything that is familiar gets packed up in the old home. Routine tends to go out of the window and everything your pet is used to in life suddenly changes.

    Consider sending your dog or cat to family, friends or a boarding kennel whilst you make the move. This has the advantage of keeping your pet safe, stress free and away from the commotion, allowing you to pack, unpack and get settled. Once you are in, and a few boxes are unpacked, it will give you more time to spend precious time with your pet and begin to help them settle into their new pad.

    Alternatively, on arrival at your new house, ensure your dog or cat is somewhere secure until you have one room ready that you can put them in safely. Put their familiar belongings in the room such as their bed, favourite toys and a food and water bowls. Keep the doors and windows of the room closed, so they can’t escape, and put a sign on the door to remind and prevent anyone inadvertently letting your pet out by mistake. Once you have all your belongings moved in, and the house is a little bit more like home, you can let your dog outside to explore their new habitat. Ensure your garden is secure and stay close to them.

  • The Hughes at Elsey Croft

    Elsey Croft_Hughes_003A modern take on a traditional four bedroom home (an article by Caroline, Director)

    I was at Elsey Croft, Skipton yesterday looking through The Hughes, Plot 64, ensuring its progress for its future homeowner! I was delighted to see how the space worked in this house. Admittedly I get quite excited about many of our homes, but I feel this one is something new for us.

    Walk in and your first impression is that of a very large kitchen area, with a beautiful island with space for your hob and to prep all your meals too. Further along from that is the garden room which has so many windows in it you could almost call it an orangery!

    This home has been designed with the family at the heart of it. As a family business and knowing how we spend our time, we wanted to design a home where meal times, where the family all sit together for a daily catch up, were made the main event. The house also lends itself to al fresco dining in the summer without having to move all your food outside. Open up the velux’s, open up the patio doors and turn on the bbq. Bring the outdoors indoors without having to worry about what the weather might do.

    Upstairs?

    On the first floor there are two great sized doubles, both with space for wardrobes, and a house bathroom. There’s also a en-suite room on this floor too.
    Go up to the top and you’ll find the master suite which benefits from high ceilings and beautiful views out to the farmland in front. The depth of the fitted wardrobes in this room also means you can use the back of the wardrobe as storage – suitcases, boxes, whatever you like!

    Anything else?

    The Hughes is one of our larger four bedroom homes which means it has a few included extras in the specification.

    • A granite or quartz worktop in the kitchen – because the island wouldn’t be done justice with any joins in it!
    • Underfloor heating to the ground floor
    • A fireplace for those cosy winter nights
    • South facing landscaped
    • High ceilings
    • Larger skirtings
    • Space for a laundry area in the garage
    • A full fridge and a full freezer
    • An upgraded Hansgrohe Rain Shower to the en-suite bathroom
    • Half tiling to all bathrooms
    • Downlights to kitchen and garden room – so you don’t need to worry if the pendant lines up with the dining table!
