Approximate location


We are two women living in a two bedroom modernised cottage in a rural location with a large garden. The nearest village is 3 miles away with bank, shop and post office.A car would be essential. We are looking for non smokers please. We keep one Maine Coon female cat and four dogs, two West Highland White Terriers and two medium size black poodles - all bitches. We keep mixed free range poultry, two Chinese geese and several guinea fowl. We also have a tropical aquarium .

What responsibilities are required of house sitter?

All our animals have a regular routine and wear their own watches! They are therefore easy to manage. The dogs do not need to be walked on a regular basis as we have three acres of fenced in land. The poultry require routine feeding, egg collection and letting out and shutting up each day.
We would require you to be on the premises apart from short trips out for shopping etc.
We would hope you would keep the house clean and tidy. Any gardening would be gratefully received! Someone with horticultural knowledge would be appreciated.
