SPOILT PET NEED HUMAN PALS
We both took early retirement and want to travel as much as we can while we feel able to do so. We have close relatives in New Zealand, Canada and South Africa and although we have put Freddie into kennels for a couple of nights he really doesn't like it and he tries to escape and get back in the car! We would prefer for him to be comfortable in his own home with new friends to play with.
We are actually away from 19th to 26th June but would like our sitter to come a day or so before so we can explain the workings of items in the house and get to meet and stay or a day or two after our holiday.
Our Home & Location
We live in a pretty market town which has the Old River Nene running through it. We are about a 10 minute walk into town, either by the roadside or along the pathway by the river. In the town there are a selection of shops including Sainsbury supermarket, a couple of chemists, assorted clothes shops and charity shops. There is a large Tesco supermarket a short drive away. There is a pretty park, West End Park, within which there is a Library, indoor swimming pool and Leisure Centre.
The house is a detached modern house at the end of a cul de sac in a private road with its own driveway to park on. It has a lounge, seperate dining room, downstairs cloakroom and a kitchen diner with butler sink, dishwasher, combination microwave and electric oven with gas hob, American fridge freezer. The utility room has a sink, washing machine and cupboards. The tumble dryer is in the garage. The ground floor has wooden floors as does the master bedroom and upstairs landing. Four bedrooms are carpeted, except for the bathroom and en suite. There are 5 bedrooms, 2 with king size beds, 1 4ft 6in bed, 1 4ft bed and 1 with twin beds. There are TV's in 3 of the bedrooms, 1 in the lounge and 1 in the kitchen. The garden is a reasonable size and fully enclosed and private, we also have a hot tub that you may use if you so wish.
We are approx 30 minutes from Peterborough and Ely and 20 minutes from Wisbech. Cambridge is about an hour away by car but there is a good park and ride system. The train station is a 10 minute walk away. Stansted Airport is on a direct train line to March which takes an hour and six minutes. We are 30 minutes from the Norfolk border and it takes approx 40 minutes to get to the beach at Hunstanton.
