Companion for 2 French Bulldogs in Tetbury, Cotswolds - 16-23rd June 2018
I am hoping for some friendly, reliable house-sitter who would like to come and sit my house and 2 French Bulldogs 16th to 23rd June. Dog lover is essential and someone who is happy to water the garden and green house. It's a laid-back household in a quiet, friendly area of a pretty Cotswold town and would be ideally suited to walking enthusiasts.
Our Home & Location
The house is a 3-bedroom semi-detached in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of Tetbury, which is a pretty little market town in the South Cotswolds. The house has fibre broadband, gas central heating, wood burner, shower and bath and a secure South-facing garden that's not overlooked. We have TV subscriptions to Amazon, Netflix and Now TV (Sky).
There is ample parking and the centre of Tetbury is 2 minutes' walk away. Kemble Station is 7 miles away from the town and has trains running into London (approx 1.5hrs) and Cheltenham, Gloucester, Birmingham and Swindon. If you have a driving licence there will be a car for use here (manual transmission) and there are also a couple of bicycles. There are buses running to the train station, Cirencester and Stroud....
Tetbury is a friendly little town with a number of cafes, restaurants and boutique shops. It's quite a foodie town and has a renowned cheese shop and bakery run by 'The Fabulous Baker Brothers' of Channel 4's cookery program of the same name. There are a number of good pubs, all of which are dog friendly (my two love going to get their treats in the Royal Oak or Snooty Fox.) There are lots of circular countryside walks right from the front door ranging from a mile up to 9 miles. Westonbert Arboretum is 2 miles outside town and I have a pass to get in free. The Roman town of Cirencester is 10 miles away and well worth a visit and there are lots of very pretty little villages and hamlets tucked out of the way. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
My main concern whilst I am away are Xena and Smurf, my French Bulldogs. They are very friendly little girls who enjoy having two 30-60 minute walks a day when it is cool and love a cuddle on the sofa in the evening. They do also prefer to sleep in the bedroom. They don't like to be left for more than 2-3 hours by themselves. Watering the garden and greenhouse is also needed and whomever sits is welcome to use the fruit and vegetables grown there.
