Sussex Countryside Idyll
We live in a 15th century Sussex house in the countryside, with an acre of garden, outhouses and 12 acres of grazing. We have 2 cats and a chocolate labrador and we enjoy travelling. It would be great to have the peace of mind while we are away that having housesitters would give us, and to know that our animals are well cared for.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a 6 bedroom 15th century Sussex Farmhouse. We have an Oast house in the garden which has 2 bedrooms, sitting room with kitchen and shower room which would be the home of the house sitter!. The house is 5 mins drive from the village of Wadhurst where you can buy most things (amazing hardware store! and Great Coffee!) and 10 mins drive from the larger town of Tunbridge Wells. The station is 5 mins drive away and it is an hour on the train to London Charing Cross. We are very close to Rye, Brighton, Sissinghurst Garden and many other lovely attractions.
Responsibilities & Pets
Our 2 cats are inevitably fairly independent but would love to be fed twice a day and given the odd bit of attention! Molly the labrador needs a good walk once a day and will respond of course to lots of attention. She is also quite used to being left by herself so won't need 24 hour care. The garden will offer plenty of scope for work, but there will be a gardener coming once a week. The house itself just needs monitoring should there be storms, but otherwise is fairly easy to keep an eye on.
