North Cotswold Historic Home, a Chihuahua and 2 Maltese
Hi! We are a friendly professional couple with 3 beautiful, small dogs. We have two teacup maltese- Cosette and Sasha, both 12, as well as a 1.5 year old rescue chihuahua named Bella.
We love to travel- usually for trips of 1 to 3 weeks- but hate leaving our little girls in a kennel. We have a large, historic and immaculate Cotswold stone home within 10 minutes from Chipping Camden, Blockley, Ebrington, Broadway, Moreton-in-Marsh, Mickelton and a large assortment of National Trust properties. We are also very close to all the major walks including the Cotswold Way and Heart of England. There are various restaurants, pubs and cafes close by!...
Paul and I are looking for a couple/single person who enjoys visiting the Cotswolds frequently so that we have the same sitters every time, if possible. This could be like a second home for you! We enjoy traveling most times of the year except summer. The house contains a guest floor with private bathrooms and a comfortable bed. The kitchen is very large and modern with high end everything- perfect if you like to cook! A library and a private walled garden with flowers, roses and fruit trees are also at your disposal . We really will do everything to ensure you are comfortable! My preference is for sitters that live in the UK and have references/ a background check though we are openminded. Feel free to apply if you don't live in the UK though. Must be tidy and must be punctual! The home also has a 24/7 security guard and is located on a private road. PS- the girls told me to post that "expert belly rubbers take priority".
NOTE: I HAVE NOT BOOKED THE TRIP YET BECAUSE I WANT TO CONFIRM A SITTER FIRST. I'M THINKING WE WILL BE AWAY FOR 10-14 DAYS AND ROUGHLY THE TWO MIDDLE WEEKS OF SEPTEMBER. + More info
Our Home & Location
Cotswold area of outstanding beauty, the North Cotswolds are the most brilliant bit! Close to Blockley, Chipping Camden, Broadway and other villages. The home has a 24/7 security guard and is set on 48 acres on a private road.
We have a strong internet connection where it is possible to stream in different rooms at the same time. Phone service is hit and miss (BT are "working on it"). Sometimes we have to walk outside to send a text. I often use Skype or FaceTime to make calls. Also, note, we don't have a television (because there is so much to do in this area!). However, you can easily stream from any device. When you arrive we will set up the multiple networks on your computers, etc....
I have made an extensive guide to help with your holiday. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Love small dogs!
Occasionally walk the girls when it isn't raining (within the estate grounds is fine).
Hugs and belly rubs!
Be tidy and on time.
Skype/text with us every few days/week to check in on how things are going.
Keep the food and water bowl filled.
Enjoy yourself because life is too short not to.
All of our local pubs allow dogs, they are quite well known! If you go to the pub and don't mind bringing them out with you, that would be a bonus!...
They are active and, like many small breeds, can be a bit "barky" but also very affectionate. When the postman rings things can get chaotic!
Bella is a rescue and due to the past situation prefers the company of women. + More info
