House and pet sitting 6 nights over the Christmas period
We are two working professionals living in the Bedford area. We have not had a house sitter before but we do have two pets and as our children have moved on to university we do need some help with pet sitting.
Our Home & Location
We live in a modern 4 bed detached house in a new development on the outskirts of Bedford with a country park along the river Ouse and facilities (including a Sainsburys, cafe, hairdresser and Takeaway) on the doorstep. The surrounding area has some beautiful countryside, with the train station in Bedford being just a 10 minute drive away or if you like a decent walk, it takes about 40 mins to walk along the river into the centre of Bedford. Here there is a riverside development with pubs and restaurants also a cinema, or the town centre is well populated with chain stores such as M & S and Debenhams as well as independent shops. Milton Keynes is also easily accessible by car, around a 25 minute drive away.
Responsibilities & Pets
Tess our Sprollie is 18 months old and needs a good hour long walk each day (or two half hours). She is fully house trained and good with children so far, although we don’t have any small children to test this on very often! Sandy the cat is 10 years old and likes to sleep a lot. They both get fed twice a day, in the morning around 7am and evening at 5-6pm. The house is very easy to live in, being very modern and other than keeping it clean there are no special requirements in winter. In summer there is some watering of the garden required.
