A break in beautiful Herefordshire?
I am a self employed hairdresser who works from home part time. My husband Phil works from home and up until last January we had Just Milo & George. Then we get another GSP to keep Milo company. A two year old bitch called Maya. She is in training and her recall is not perfect so when out she is on a long lead most of the time. George is still going strong though and is always up for a walk. They are all pretty easy, like any dogs they just like company (and lots of fuss)!!!
Our Home & Location
We live in a very spacious 5 bedroomed house which is split level, so the main living areas are on the first floor although the back garden can be accessed from this level. There is a lovely decked area to the front which is South facing with views and can be accessed from both the dining and sitting rooms, a great place to eat and to sit and read when we have the weather! The village has two good pubs within walking distance. The pubs and the area are all destinations that people head to for walking eating and drinking. We are blessed and fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. The nearest shop is in the next village called Fownhope. This is open 7 days a week and is pretty well stocked. The country town of Hereford is a 15 minute drive with Ledbury and Ross-on-Wye being slightly further. Ledbury is a particularly attractive country town which like Hereford has a mainline railway station. In essence, we have lots of lovely scenery on the doorstep, its absolutely ideal for those who like peace and quiet and walking! Although I have ticked car required we have had a house sitter who had no transport and loved it. All depends on how far you want to travel. We are happy to pick up / take to local railway and bus stations or anywhere else for that matter within reason.
We enjoy 80 Mbit Broadband with wifi covering the whole house. There are no external pictures of the house for security reasons. Please see our feedback.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are not looking for anything else other than the pet sitting and perhaps a bit of watering of outside plants when needed. We need holiday sitting plus the odd weekend away.
The dogs are exercised twice a day but will take any amount you can give. We live in beautiful countryside with lots of off road walking and woods nearby. There is a very limited bus service, so a car is pretty essential if you want to explore a bit. My main requirement is company, especially for Milo & Maya as they spend their days with us at Home, they hate Kennels and love people, both can be left with George in the house for up to 3 hours with no problem. I would like someone who is confident with dogs as he really needs to run off the lead daily, he has to gallop for a bit!
