House and Pet sitters
We are looking for a trustworthy and experienced house sitter to care for three beloved pets, Annie and Maggie who are both Boxers and Frodo the cat.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 5 bedroom house in the of village Itchen Abbas which is about 6.5km from the historic City of Winchester. Itchen Abbas is a small village with a church and a friendly village pub (The Plough), perfect for a Sunday lunch and its very dog friendly, all within walking distance.
Our home is a newly renovated 19th Century house. It has a large open plan kitchen/dining and living area. Accommodation for the House sitters will be in our guest bedroom with access to a guest bathroom with shower and bath.
We are surrounded by wonderful countryside with many miles of footpaths to explore. The area is also very popular with cyclists. There is a bus stop in the village but I would recommend the House sitter to have a car as I believe they will be reducing the bus service soon. Our nearest town is Alresford (4 miles) which has all you could need, a CO-OP, butchers, fishmongers, coffee shops etc and not forgetting the famous Watercress Railway line.
Responsibilities & Pets
The main area of responsibility is the care of our pets. Annie is a Boxer of 12 yrs. Annie is adorable but now rather old and requires only company and love. I take her out for a couple of short walks a day. She is very obedient and loving.
Maggie is our 18 month old Boxer and she is an absolute bundle of fun. Maggie is obedient, slightly cheeky and everyone loves her to bits. Maggie has a couple of walks a day....
Frodo our cat is a typical country cat. He will curl up on you knee for hours and is generally very low mainence.
As for the house, there is very little to do other than being a house sitter. We have a cleaner who comes once a week and a gardener who will also be popping in so its just a case of looking after the property and care for our pets. + More info
