Honest, reliable, animal lover required for regular house sitting and animal feeding on smallholding outside Ashbourne.
We are a family who live on a smallholding in a isolated rural location set in 10 acres. We have 6 dogs. 4 working Labradors, 1 working Cocker Spaniel (all working gundogs) and a German Shepard. We also have 6 sheep. We are looking for a trustworthy, reliable housesitter to care for our animals while we are away. Ideally we would like a regular it will be for weekends and annual holidays. The house sitter would be more than welcome to stay before and afterwards as we have a separate annex and you could come and go as you wish.
