Holiday Cover for September 2017 and January 2018 in Norfolk
Hello Alex and I are in Norfolk and we are looking for a pet sitter for our house and lots of pets (we have dogs, cats, chickens, swans and ducks) in Banham, Norfolk when we go on holiday in September this year and January in 2018 and possibly the other odd weekend when we need to be away. We know this is a big ask but we hope someone will be willing to take it on. We are happy to pay a reasonable rate for help and will cover all travel expenses and leave a well stocked fridge and bar as an additional inducement:) The dates showing are now exact as we have had to book tickets and block out our holiday cottages.
Our Home & Location
We are in Banham, a small village in South Norfolk close to the famous Zoo, our house is a converted barn with attached holiday cottages, about a mile from the nearest shop in the village (easy walk or you can borrow one of the bicycles:). There is wifi, Sky TV, and a well stocked fridge and bar. We have an acre of grounds so there is plenty of room for the 3 pugs and our terrier to run around in. Public transport is very limited so your own car or other means of transport is rather essential, alternatively we could offer a pick up and drop off service at the train stations in Diss, Attleborough or Norwich and lend you a car for when you are with us or if you then wanted to walk or spend the time in the garden reading, writing or just relaxing and admiring the views of the pond.
Responsibilities & Pets
Loving and caring for our 4 rescue cats, walking our three pug dogs and Norkshire Terrier (she is a Yorkshire/Norfolk cross) - although the garden is very large and fully enclosed so you can just let them run free in there as we appreciate 4 is a lot to take for walks and as two are now quite elderly they would prefer this to being walked. Feeding the fish in the tank and in the pond (only every couple of days). There are also Indian Runner ducks and assocted chickens in their coop to feed and eggs to collect - but this only takes minutes in a morning. A bit of plant watering would also be welcome if the weather is warm.
