Looking for a trustworthy and dog loving house sitter for a house sit in Bedford
Hi there! My name is Charlotte and I live in central Bedford with my husband and gorgeous dog, Haku. We both work in Digital Marketing and whilst my husband commutes into London everyday, I am self-employed and work from home. We are looking for a house sitter to take care of our house and more importantly Haku whilst we attend a friend's wedding in Rhodes this July. We have used Trusted Housesitter previously when we were based in St Albans and had a fabulous experience. Hoping we can recreate this experience for us, Haku and our house sitter.
Our Home & Location
Our home is located in central Bedford, a market town in Bedfordshire. Bedford is situated 45 minutes from Cambridge and 30 minutes from Milton Keynes giving us a huge amount of opportunities to enjoy when we aren't busy working. We live on a beautiful tree lined street, in a modern 5 bed, 3 bath house and is both a ten minute walk into Bedford high street and to Bedford Railway Station. This gives us direct train links into London St Pancras in under 45 minutes. We have a large fenced garden which gives our dog plenty of room to scamp about during the day and is a really beautiful spot during the summer, to enjoy morning coffees and a barbecue.
Bedford town has a weekly market and a range of shopping amenities for the keen shopper. From out of town retail parks to a modern high street, Bedford offers a good range of shops for all. It also has some great pubs from The Embankment down by the river to the lovely Foresters which is newly opened. And if you do have a car, there are plenty of gorgeous villages surrounding Bedford from Olney to Harrold which are definitely worth a visit.
Responsibilities & Pets
In regards to responsibilities, it would be primarily the care of our dog Haku. He would need daily walks, whether it be two thirty minute walks or one longer hour walk, twice daily feeding and obviously cuddles and playtime. He is obsessed with tennis balls! We would expect and want our house to be well looked after - keeping it clean, tidy and secure.
