House sitter (who could view the house and meet our dog, beforehand) required for a stone country property and a lovely golden retriever.
We are a couple of retired teachers in our 60's who take a couple of holidays each year when our friendly retriever and old stone property need someone to care for them. We need potential sitters to meet our dog and see our house before covering for us.
Our Home & Location
We live in a large stone house in a village with a shop and pub, but there are two towns (Market Harborough and Corby), each about five miles away, with major supermarkets and national stores. The County of Rutland and Rutland Water are close and we regularly visit markets at Uppingham and Oakham. Our village lies at the Southern edge of the Welland Valley which includes many lovely walks to interesting villages with historic churches and pubs.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dog needs companionship and a couple of walks (on his lead) each day. Fish need a handful of food! We would like to keep in touch, whilst on holiday, using Facetime or Skype.
