Two dogs, two hens & a cat need new best friends in Small Village location rural Norfolk!
I am a retired teacher and my husband Ian is a recently retired loss adjuster. We both enjoy walking, gardening, cooking and spending time in our lovely cottage which we have substantially renovated. As much as we enjoy cottage holidays with our dogs in this country, we would very much like the occasional holiday abroad and would rather our pets stayed at home in familiar surroundings. We’ve not had sitters before, so this is all new to us!
Our Home & Location
Our home is a detached Victorian cottage situated on a quiet lane in a small friendly village Welborne. The accommodation comprises 3 bedrooms (one used as a study), en-suite bathroom, lounge, dining room, kitchen, garden room & lobby/doggie’s room! Some of the ceilings are low. We have an enclosed cottage style garden.
There are lovely rural walks from the door....
There’s a shop, butchers, post office and doctors surgery/chemist in nearby Mattishall and an excellent shop/post office in nearby Barnham Broom. There are number of supermarkets within a 15 minute drive and Norwich is 13 miles away. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like our sitters just to ‘step into our shoes’! .......to look after our house as if it was their own, to care for our dogs Maisy & Monty - feeding them and walking them twice a day & to care for our diabetic cat Bubbles and our 2 hens.
Maisy and Monty are two well behaved dogs, but are both strong and can pull occasionally!...
Bubbles is diabetic and requires subcutaneous injections twice a day which we currently administer. Whilst it would be great to find a sitter prepared to do this, we could if necessary make alternative arrangements for Bubbles.
Our two hens just require feeding and cleaning out when collecting the eggs. There again, separate arrangements could be made for the hens if necessary. + More info
