Two lovely dogs looking for some company and a daily good walk!
We need sitters to look after the house and our animals while we are away for short breaks in Bruges several times a year. Both our dogs have their silver obedience certificates and are very friendly and get on well with other dogs - they are now 4 years and 6 yers old and behave well most of the time! We have a two gorgeous independent cats and we have three productive chickens! We live in a lovely, friendly Wiltshire village with really good walks from home.
Our Home & Location
We live in a large, modern, comfortable home with 5 bedrooms and a big garden with vegetable plot. The medium sized village has two pubs which serve food, one does fine dining and also has a cafe attached. We have two shops and a doctors surgery and are 5 miles from the nearest town of Hungerford and 6 miles from the historic town of Marlborough. The river Kennet flows through the village and there are lots of good walks including to Littlecote House and its Roman mosaic floor and past Ramsbury Manor in the other direction.
Responsibilities & Pets
We need people who like large hairy dogs and cats and who are happy to cut the grass, water the plants if necessary and harvest any produce while we are away. The chickens need to be fed, kept safe and cleaned out from time to time in return for plenty of delicious fresh eggs.
