Two dogs need a house sitter on a farm in Northumberland
We live in the beautiful county of Northumberland on a farm between Morpeth and Alnwick. We are looking for a couple to look after our two dogs Lottie and Joe. We have four hens who lay delicious eggs, they will need to be fed and watered. We live in a 4 bedroom house surrounded by a garden and fields. We are 3 miles from the beach and the wonderful Northumbrian coastline and close to Alnwick, the Cheviot Hills, Cragside and Hadrian's Wall. My Mum, Dad and sister live in the farmhouse, which is about 1/4 mile up the farm road. A car is essential.
Our Home & Location
The 360 acre farm is located just off the A1 in Northumberland, between Morpeth and Alnwick. It is a 4 bedroom stone house set in a mature garden. It is surrounded by grass fields, which you are more than welcome to walk around. We have views east to the coast and west to the Cheviot Hills.
The house has two bathrooms, a farmhouse kitchen with Aga, large sitting room and conservatory. We have oil central heating and ample areas to sit outside.
Responsibilities & Pets
Lottie and Joe enjoy at least three walks a day. Lottie is an enthusiastic flat coated retriever, while Joe is a typical Border and at aged 12 he often decides not to walk if it is raining!! They are both very social dogs, although you have to watch Joe with Border Collies if you are walking on the beach. Lottie and Joe are fed twice a day morning and afternoon. Joe will say he hasn't been fed and is the master of looking at you as if to say no one has fed me for days. They both enjoy the run of the house downstairs and have been known to join you on the sofa.
Our four hens are in a run in the garden and will need food and water, they lay delicious eggs which you get to eat!
