We have two dogs who come with us for our long holiday in August and September, but will need looking after for our shorter holidays which are usually for 10 days approximately and can be at any other time in the year outside our August/September holiday.
We have a house in Italy which we usually visit for a total of 3 months each year comprising about 5/6 visits a year including one long one, where we always bring our dogs.
We are both retired and the house is situated in the countryside and is relatively isolated. Nearest towns include Haverhill, Saffron Walden and Cambridge
Our Home & Location
The house is based in the countryside but near to Cambridge and the various attractions to be enjoyed there. We are also close to Newmarket for those housesitters interested in horses.
London is just over an hour by train into either Kings Cross or Liverpool St. We are approximately 20 mins from our nearest station
Responsibilities & Pets
The responsibilities include looking after the dogs when we do not take them with us, making sure the house is secure, and garden and green house watering in the Summer although a Gardner comes once a week. The house should be kept tidy although a cleaner comes once a week.
