Golden retriever and three cats in North Norfolk
We live and work from our home in North Norfolk. My husband is a physiotherapist and I run our two holiday cottages and B&B. We are planning a trip away in June 2018 and need someone to love and look after our animals and keep an eye on the house. There will be no guests staying during this time.
We have a 10 year old golden retriever who is very obedient and has the sweetest nature. Also three gorgeous cats who are generally very affectionate. They are very likely to come and sit on your lap for a cuddle. There are great walks from the door but we're also less than half an hour from wonderful sandy beaches on the North Norfolk coast. We have a large 6 bed house and our house sitters will have a guest room with en suite. We request that you do not smoke in the house.
Our Home & Location
We live in a small village with no shop or pub, so your own transport is essential. The nearest town is Fakenham, which is 10 minutes drive away. It has four supermarkets, a weekly market and auction, and a cinema. We are less than half an hour away from the North Norfolk coast and the spectacular sandy beaches at Wells and Holkham. There is plenty to do around here. If you like walking, try the North Norfolk coastal path, anywhere from Hunstanton to Cromer. For historic buildings, there is Sandringham, Holkham Hall, the priory at Castle Acre and many National Trust properties an easy drive away. We are also a short drive from the Shrine at Walsingham. For nature lovers, there is Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve and many more opportunities for birdwatching along the coast, or take a boat trip out to see the seals at Blakeney Point. We can advise you where to go to sailing or take a boat trip, hire a beach hut, or take a leisurely steam train ride. There are great pubs where you'll be able to try locally sourced food and beers.
Responsibilities & Pets
Most importantly we are looking for sitters who will love and look after our animals. Milly needs walking daily. She especially loves the the woods and beach at Wells. Please cuddle the cats as required!
