Rural location close to Marlborough, Wiltshire
We are principally looking for someone who will look after our dog Ella in our absence. We live in a rural location, so would only be suitable for those who like peace and quiet! - but with the amenities of Marlborough 10 minutes away.
Our Home & Location
The housesit would suit those who like seclusion. We are accessed via a byway,a car is essential, however, a four wheeled drive car is not necessary! The area is excellent for those who like walking and exploring the countryside. Living on a byway, has wonderful access to the tracks and fields without having to drive anywhere.
The accommodation is arranged on two floors. The ground floor is open plan, a large kitchen with an aga, and has a cosy study/TV room. House sitters would have the use of their own apartment which is part of the house....
There is a spacious terrace, and extensive grounds of 10 acres completely surrounded by fields.
There is wifi at the property. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our Jack Russell terrier is called Ella, who needless to say is very precious to us!
Alongside her are 3 chickens who will need feeding on a daily basis....
We normally walk Ella daily, but she has the run of the grounds, and is very aware of the boundaries, even though we are not fenced in. We are happy for Ella to be left for a short time, but would not want her left in the house for any length of time. + More info
