Whippet-lover wanted to dog-sit in foodie paradise, Marlow.
We are a family of four, who occasionally go away without our beloved whippet, Wally. We may be biased, but Wally's fab, and is very happy to curl up on the sofa and sleep once he's had a walk. We live in the beautiful town of Marlow, close to the River Thames and to gorgeous woodland and open country walks, including nearby vineyards.
Our Home & Location
Marlow is a lovely Thameside town with lots to offer: book shops, cafes, restaurants, the world famous Hand and Flowers, and lots more. Nearby, you can swim in the river, go for walks in the Chilterns, get the bus to Henley to look round the shops or take a boat out on the river. There's lots to explore.
We live in a 5 bedroom house with a large-ish garden. There's a table-tennis table and a hammock to relax in with a G&T and watch the red kites fly overhead as the sun goes down. It's a very pretty spot.
Responsibilities & Pets
One dog, who needs 2 shortish walks a day (c20-30 mins in the morning, c20-30 mins in the evening.) He'll happily curl up on the sofa when he comes back. Back at home, it's just about keeping everything tidy, and clearing up after yourself (putting the bins out on the right night etc). We wouldn't expect you to do any extra chores on top of that. We have a cleaner and a gardener, so you wouldn't need to mow the lawn or do anything other than clearing up after yourself.
