Country Bungalow in the Midlands
We are looking for pet sitters that will enjoy looking after our cat and chickens in peaceful and rural Northamptonshire. Our sitters will need to have their own car.
Please note we do own dogs as well, however they will be holidaying with us for this trip.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a four bedroomed bungalow in a small village in northern Northamptonshire it is in a very quiet location, we live on the edge of the village down a private drive with only fields in front of us. However we are not isolated we do have neighbours just not right on top of us. Our neighbours are friendly people who will always help in a crisis. Our village is lucky enough to have a well stocked shop and Post Office, there are also two pubs.
Our sitters will have the use of 3 of the bedrooms - 2 double bedrooms (1 with en-suite shower room) and single office/bedroom. We have a large dining kitchen (as shown in the photos), utility room, dining room, sitting room and family bathroom.
HAVING A CAR IS ESSENTIAL- buses are few and far between....
It is really easy to get around the Midlands from here as we are located just 3 miles off junction 1 of the A14, and about 6 miles from junction 20 of the M1. Our nearest towns are Market Harborough 7 miles, Lutterworth 7 miles and Rugby about 9 miles. The city of Leicester is only 15 miles north of us, if Leicester isn't large enough for you there are trains to Birmingham regularly from Rugby station - the journey time is about 30 minutes. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our cat is very easy going as long as she's fed and loved on demand! She is fed a dry cat food which is always available to her, I usually top it up and refresh her water twice a day.
The chickens are very undemanding, they need feeding and cleaning daily this takes about 15 minutes. In addition to that they need to be let out of their coop first thing in the morning and shut in at dusk (to protect them from the foxes) .
