House & pet sitter needed in Suffolk / Essex border to care for two delightful little dogs
We are looking for a house sitter to care for our two delightful 7 year old cairn terriers Cracker and Pebbles and 1 chicken (we did have four but unfortunately we have lost three of them, Daisy seems very happy on her own). We have a 4 bedroom detached thatched house in a very quiet position with a large secure garden 1 mile from the small market town of Sudbury in Suffolk, we are surrounded by Constable country on the Suffolk Essex border. We are close to Lavenham, Colchester, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich all within an area of 25 miles. There are lovely walks, direct from the house, over the meadows by the river stour.
Our Home & Location
A pretty 4 bedroomed detached thatched property with a large garden, lounge, dining room, large kitchen, utility room and a garden room. Long drive to house 75 metres from gate. Very quiet semi rural area - garden surrounded by a wood. We are on the edge of the small market town of Sudbury in Suffolk. There are a lot of lovely walks by the river and along the disused railway line, Sudbury town is approx. 20 mins walking distance, either by road or across the footpaths into town.
Responsibilities & Pets
To care for and look after Cracker and Pebbles they are both very lively and friendly. They are rescue dogs which we have had now for 3 years in October. They have no problems except for over exuberance, they love people and children. They love their walks over the meadows close to home. We have a large garden so they have lots of room to run around. It will also take about 10mins a day to care for Daisy the 1 chicken we have left unfortunately we have lost our other three. If you are lucky you will get a fresh egg about twice a week. In the summer there will be some watering to do with baskets and flower beds and tending to the indoor plants in the conservatory.
My Brother and sister in law live next door if any help or advice is needed.
