Christmas in the Countryside?
We are a family of four with two lovely dogs. Lottie is getting a little old and Reggie is a rescue dog hence the need to have them looked after in their own home rather than going into kennels while we are away. They are both very affectionate and thoroughly enjoy their walks so we would like a pet sitter who is active and generous with cuddles too!
Our Home & Location
We live in a small village between Swindon and Oxford. We are very close the Uffington White Horse. This is a beautiful area and would suit country lovers perfectly. We are also close the the village of Lambourn (The Valley of the Racehorse) and are less than an hour away from a number of racecourses including Cheltenham. Oxford city is just a 40 minute drive away and is well worth a visit to see the Christmas markets in December. We are just on the edge of the Cotswolds but the whole area is easily accessible. Our village is surrounded by many beautiful country walks yet the closest small shops and pubs are within a couple of miles. We have a four bedroomed detached house with all the usual mod cons. We have a log burner in the sitting room and an Aga in the kitchen.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs need to be walked twice a day and are fed morning and evening. They enjoy company so will happily stay by your side for most of the day although they are happy to be left at home if you are out for the day. (As long as they are given a chewy bone as you leave the house!) the garden is very low maintenance so will require little or no effort over the winter.
