someone to look after the animals and house sit while we are away. we are outside the main village and live in a small hamlet close to Smarden Business estate quiet but not isolated.
We have two dogs and we put them in kennels for three years but now the youngest pines and loses so much weight it has taken a year to re fatten. My parents were looking after them but I think that as the dogs are very strong that they would be better with someone a little younger and fitter. We would feel better if they could stay at home and would feel better if someone was living in the house while we are away for peace of mind.
Our Home & Location
Smarden is within an 18/20 mile radius of Maidstone, Ashford international, Tunbridge wells, Tenterden, and Camber sands Rye east Sussex. it is in the middle of countryside with many walks and a short distance drive to a forest or wooded area. The village has a gallery a few pubs and butchers. is fairly friendly and quite pretty with playing area and tennis courts.
the house is a converted barn and has two double bedroom and a single bedroom.
Responsibilities & Pets
mainly living in the house and looking after the dogs. they do not need 24 hour care but just to know that someone will be here overnight and in and out during the day. We could provide transport for taking the dogs off to the woods for walks and basically just caring for the animals and the wild animals that visit the garden.
