Dog lover needed for occasional weekends/longer holidays
We are a retired couple living in beautiful West Berkshire and share our home with two chihuahuas and a frug (pug X french bulldog). We are looking for someone to love and care for our dogs when we go away for weekends, mini breaks or one or two weeks holiday.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small village in the Lambourn valley and our house is quietly situated behind an electric gate and has stunning views. Our garden has a lawn, herbaceous borders and a special feature is the rockery which is full of colour from spring until autumn. Our sitter will have a large bedroom that benefits from an en suite bathroom. The house is only 12 years old so is particularly well insulated and also has a lovely new kitchen with all mod cons including a boiling water tap. The village shop is well stocked and has a post office. We also have a petrol station that sells some basics. The Swan pub (5 minutes walk from our house) has undergone a refurbishment and has reopened to good reviews for food and beer. We are in a good location for exploring with Hungerford and Wantage only 10 minutes by car and Oxford, Newbury and Reading within easy reach and places like Winchester and Salisbury just a little further away.
Responsibilities & Pets
Nothing too demanding. We are looking for someone to look after our dogs and give them a walk each day. We would ask for the house to be kept clean and tidy and for the grass to be cut if necessary. Our houseplants would also appreciate being watered.
