We are in our sixties and travel fairly frequently so are looking for a house and pet sitter to come and look after our home and dog in our absence. We live on a farm so there are lots of beautiful walks around our home. We have grown up children who have left home now and we are both still working.
Our Home & Location
We live in a 6 bed farmhouse, with an Aga in the kitchen. It is in the farm yard but we are not involved with the running of the farm which has a prize winning herd of Hereford cows - which are looked after by our neighbour Terry. There are several small businesses in the farmyard and several neighbouring cottages. We are 5 minutes off the A4 between Reading and Newbury, 10 mins from the shops and the train station (and doctor) at Theale, and quite close to cinemas, shops and other attractions in Reading and Newbury.
Responsibilities & Pets
To feed Maisie, our working cocker, twice a day and take her for walks. She is very energetic and loves going out for as many walks as possible. Otherwise it's just a case of taking in the post, putting out bins if necessary and keeping an eye on the house and surroundings.
