House sitting with pet care whilst we are on holiday
Hi, we live in a Grade II listed cottage in a lovely village just outside Lewes with a gorgeous country pub about a minute's walk away and backing onto fields with great local walks.
We need housesitting and pet care for when we go on holiday....
We have a very friendly chocolate lab, a cute Australian Labradoodle born Sept 2017 (fully housetrained) and 2 squeaky guinea pigs who live in an indoor cage. We also have 2 indoor fish tanks that just require a pinch of food daily.
We have internet/WiFi, however it is regular speed and not high speed. Due to our semi-rural location, we have poor mobile phone coverage at our house unless you are in the garden! So this may not be ideal for people trying to run an business who rely on high speed internet.
However, if this doesn't phase you, there is so much to do in Sussex and it is a beautiful part of the UK with beaches and beautiful countryside close by. + More info
Our Home & Location
We live in a friendly village called Laughton that has a village shop and post office and a great country pub serving locally sourced food about a minute's walk from our house.
We are a 10 minute drive from the interesting town of Lewes with antiques shops to browse, restaurants, shops and a Waitrose and Tesco's....
We are about 30 minutes drive from Brighton and from Eastbourne plus about 20 minutes from the south coastline.
There are lovely walks around our village and we have a gate at the bottom of the garden to access the fields and woodland behind our home.
Our house is a Grade II listed cottage which has been mostly renovated dating back to 1790 with a lovely inglenook fireplace in the snug. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would be to look after our home, water plants if hot outside and house plants inside.
Walking our dogs over the fields behind our garden via a gate, feeding them twice a day and picking up their poo (sorry)!!!...
Feeding our 2 guinea pigs twice a day and cleaning their 2 storey indoor cage out twice a week.
We also have 2 indoor fish tanks that just need a pinch of fish food once a day. + More info
