Cockapoo sitting in Shropshire
We're a young couple living in a spacious Victorian terrace in the historic market town of Wellington, Shropshire. Our friendly little cockapoo Betsy needs sitting over the May bank holiday weekend, plus some longer dates later on in the year. The house has excellent rail and road connections, is close to beautiful Shrewsbury and has every amenity on the doorstep.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a five minute walk from Wellington station, with direct trains to Birmingham and Shrewsbury. There are shops and pubs within a few metres. You can walk the Silkin Way from the front door. Within a 20 minute drive are a range of picturesque walking sites including Ironbridge, Church Stretton and Carding Mill Valley. We have National Trust passes for Attingham Park (Betsy's favourite!) a stately home set in acres of woodlands and deer park, just a fifteen minute drive away. Shrewsbury is nearby and has a huge array of pubs, restaurants and boutique shops. There is always some sort of festival or activity next to the river in Quarry Park to check out....
We love our house and have made it as cosy and comfortable as possible, whilst keeping its original features. Set back from a busy road, it's got all amenities including a big screen TV with Netflix and surround sound. There is a working open fire in the living room. The kitchen has a dishwasher plus all the other usual appliances. Gas central heating throughout. The guest bedroom is clean, spacious and has a comfy double bed. There is a big family bathroom with a separate freestanding bathtub for delicious long soaks. Our established garden is full of wild birds and bees, and you're welcome to use the herbs growing on the sun terrace for cooking. There is a mountain bike you can borrow.
Betsy is an 18 month old cockapoo. She is a friendly, bubbly dog who makes everyone smile. She will bark at the doorbell but is generally pretty quiet otherwise. She has excellent recall off lead as long as you have a tennis ball in your hand. She can get a bit anxious when she is alone and turns into a cuddly lapdog at night. She needs an understanding sitter who can reassure her. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
To walk and feed Betsy daily, play fetch with her and keep her company. She can be left for up to four hours.
