Mature responsible couple needed to come and enjoy a little piece of Heaven in West Sussex with our menagerie!
We are a young family living in a relatively remote spot down a private gated lane nearest neighbour approx 1/4 mile. Our lovely home is set in 12 acres and it is home to a menagerie of pets including 6 chickens and 11 Ryeland or teddy bear sheep and A Labrador and our newest arrival Bertie a miniature wire haired dashchund age 11 weeks! We have used trusted housesitters for the last few years and have had overwhelmingly positive experiences and made some good friends too. Anyone coming to house sit for us would need to be police checked and able to meet for a face to face meeting in advance on the sit.

Responsibilities & Pets
Feeding and walking the dogs plus keeping them company during the day - they can be left for a couple of hours on their own but no longer. Checking the sheep daily and keeping water topped- we have a local sheep farmer who would be on call for an issues
Feeding the chickens Once a day and collecting eggs plus cleaning out once a week...
We have an experienced lady who comes and does the Ponies whilst we are away so they won’t need any additional looking after.
Possibly mowing the lawn too if you have experience with a ride on lawn mower as garden is approx 2 acres!
I have a weekly cleaner but keeping the house tidy in between.
Watering the hanging baskets and veg patch which takes about an hour!! + More info
