Sitter needed:



We are George and Linda, retired army officers, aged 63 and (ahem) 56 respectively. We have never had house sitters before though have had friends to stay to look after our small menagerie of animals (more of which, later). We enjoy travel

Home & location

We live in a Grade II Listed stone and clay cottage, built in the mid to late 1600s, with many traditional and original features but with a modern twist as we have built on a glass room, which provides a lot of light. We have 5 woodburning

The principal reason we would like to have housesitters is for our animals, in particular, our dogs, who we love very much and are very much part of our family. They are both loving, friendly dogs who are happy as long as they are fed
