We have enjoyed living in our Ashtead home for almost 15 years. Our children are now working and living away from home and we are enjoying the opportunity to do some travelling. Our cats and our home are very precious to us. Our cats have always stayed at home when we go away. Previously in the care of a friend’s daughter who has been happy to be our house sitter. She has now moved away and is no longer available.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a spacious 3 floor - 5 bedroom house which looks out over a large garden and enjoys lots of sunshine (when available in the UK!). Although in the centre of Ashtead and within minutes’ walk of shops and other services the location is generally quiet and undisturbed. A 7 minute walk to the train station which offers trains to London and many other destinations. Also convenient for a good local bus service. Ample off street parking if required.
Responsibilities & Pets
The priority is care of and company for our affectionate company-loving cats. Of course we understand and expect any house sitter will be out for periods of the day and some evenings. The cats are used to being left alone for fairly extended periods during the day. During warmer months the pond fish will need regular feeding and and a bit of maintenance of the pond. We also have a number of bird feeders which need topping up.
Also general maintenance and supervision of the house and alerting us if any problem occurs. We have a regular cleaner and gardener.
