Countryside walks in rural Kent with two poodles to show you around!
We are looking for someone who loves walking in beautiful countryside, with two happy standard Poodles.
We have lived in Stable Cottage for the last six years, we love the peace and the beautiful location, I am from Kent and have lived in East Kent for most of my life, whereas Pete is a New Zealander. We have loved having house sitters over the last three years since finding TrustedHousesitters . The animals are so happy at home. It has been great meeting new people from all over the world, making friends and seeing our home and pets through their eyes! I love how Alice seems to win people over with her funny and playful character. Knowing they are safe makes our holidays all the better!
Our Home & Location
Stable Cottage is a pretty two bedroom cottage in the grounds of a former country estate, Betteshanger House, which is now a school. It is very private and rural but close to the seaside towns of Deal and Sandwich. The castle and white cliffs at Dover are a ten minute drive and the cathedral city of Canterbury is also nearby.
There is an open fire in the sitting room and a pretty walled garden, and plenty of walks directly from the house, without having to see a road at all. We have broadband which is now superfast fibre after a long awaited rural upgrade! Sky TV and limited mobile reception in the house (depending on provider).
Responsibilities & Pets
Alice and Albert are standard poodles who are 6 & 1 year old. The need a decent walk every day and enjoy a bit of attention and company! We have had Albert since last September and he is now completely part of our family. The cat also likes a brush and his feed, although he is pretty self sufficient as cats can be and has a cat flap so will come and go as he pleases! The two chickens will provide big fresh eggs in return for fresh water and feed every day, they are free range and friendly, they will most likely be at the kitchen window in the morning at the first sign of life! I do also have a horse and a 36yr old pony, who will have someone in daily to look after so won’t be any responsibility for our house sitters! They are in the field near the house.
