Housesitters required for beautiful country house
We are looking for a non-smoking couple to look after our house and lovely German shepherds, Jonny and Thea, for a week in August. Our house is in a rural location so use of a car is essential. We require experienced housesitters with verifiable references who have experience looking after dogs so please do not apply if you don't fulfil this criteria.
Our Home & Location
Country house on outskirts of village with large gardens, pool, wifi and sky tv about 20 minutes from Tunbridge Wells. Beautiful countryside and visitor attractions (including castles and gardens) nearby. Approx. 1 hour (train) from London Charing Cross and if you did want to spend a day in London we may be able to ask a relative to pop in to look after the dogs while you're away.
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for caring housesitters to look after and enjoy our home and exercise and feed our dogs while we are away. Both dogs love being around people and having lots of attention. Jonny (4) is very laid back whereas Thea (1) is much more spirited! Both dogs are on a raw food diet and are great companions. We would only want you to exercise the dogs on our land while we are away, although you may take Thea for a walk if you wish! You will be required to water some pots while we are away but you won't be required to do anything else in the garden except enjoy it!
PLEASE NOTE: Our kitchen is likely to be in the middle of being painted. This won't stop you from using the cooker, sink, fridge and large kitchen table etc but it will mean that cabinet doors and drawers will be missing and the dining room is likely to be out of use while we store things from the kitchen there. If the weather is nice, however, we expect you'd rather be outside anyway!
