Dog & house sitter for Cornish home
Sitters needed for 4 Cocker Spaniels & 1 feral cat to cover occasional long weekends away & our annual holiday. We live on a farm which is run as a riding stables in a Cornish village close to the beach. The horses & farm animals would be taken care of by family who live nearby, but due to their own work & home life commitments they can't stay at our home & look after our dogs, but they would be here every day to look after the horses, so would be able to support & advise you if needed.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 4 bedroom recently modernised property; 2 double bedrooms & 1 single bedroom are available for you to use. There is a bathroom with a shower over the bath.
There is oil central heating & 2 wood burners in the house, these are located in the main reception rooms. The kitchen is fitted with an oil fired Aga, which provides all the hot water & cooking facilities. There is a large enclosed garden. There is also a large polytunnel, so keen gardeners feel free to enquire! We are 600m from the beach and a 20 minute walk from the coastal path....
The city of Truro is 10 miles away, Falmouth is 12 miles & St Ives 17 miles. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
You would be required to feed the dogs twice a day & walk them. We have fields close by where they can be let off their leads for a good run. The elderly cocker needs medication in the form of tablets twice a day, but she takes these easily from your fingers.
The feral cat just needs her food put outside in the evening....
The polytunnel will need watering/weeding/harvesting depending on the time of the year.
A lift to and from the airport may be appreciated for our annual holiday, an hours round trip. + More info
