A Farm Stay in return for looking after our pets and working dogs.
I'm retired and Don is still a full time farmer but we're starting to travel more frequently. We have a farm worker who looks after the day to day running of the farm and stock and will be there to help. All we need is someone who can look after our beloved pets as they are getting old and need companionship while we're away so that we can travel stress free. We'd really like to have someone reasonably close who would be able to stay each time so that the animals know them, but of course we're open to house sitters from further afield! And... as much as we'd love families to stay we would worry as our Rosie is our Alpha girl and is getting grumpy around children in her old age, so just couples and singles please.
Our Home & Location
We live on a working farm in the beautiful South West Slopes of NSW in the stunning Hilltops Region,1.5 hours from Canberra and 3.5 hours from Sydney. Our local town, Harden-Murrumburrah, is only 10 minutes away and has everything you need including cafes and a great golf course. We have a comfortable 3 bedroom home in an established garden with a pool. The homestead has Telstra mobile coverage and WiFi. Our farm offers lots of opportunities for walking and cycling as we sit on the edge of a beautiful valley and our paddocks have granite boulders and old trees which encourage wildlife.
Responsibilities & Pets
All we need you to do is feed and care for our animals and water our garden if needed. Millie is our 17 year old Birman cat, Rose and Honey are our 11 year old Golden Retrievers and Maggie (7) and Chilli (1) are our Kelpie working dogs. There are five chooks and five Khaki Campbell ducks that make up the rest of our menagerie!
A full handover will be provided on the day of your arrival.
