Village home near Salisbury
We’re new to housesitting, & have had many recommendations through friends. We’re new Empty Nesters, with two sons. One works in London, the other is about to start university. Our gorgeous dog Mara normally goes to a dog sitter, who now has a full time job. Mara is lovely, but can be anxious & we think having her in her home environment will be best while we’re away. She’s so happy at home, won’t mind being left for up to six hours as long as she’s being walked morning & evening. Our home is very comfortable, would ideally suit one person or a couple who love dogs & want to explore around Salisbury & New Forest.
Our Home & Location
We built our home just over ten years ago & love it! It’s a four-bedroomed, detached house with a gravel drive in front. There is a lovely garden to the rear with a sunny terrace. We live in the middle of the village with the local shop & pub nearby. Our guest room has an ensuite shower. In the village is a sculpture park which is free to enter. The cathedral city of Salisbury is 7 miles away & Stockbridge, a fishing village with gorgeous independent shops & restaurants is ten miles. The walking & cycling around our area is fabulous! The New Forest is within easy driving distance. This is a sitting that would suit people who like the country!
Responsibilities & Pets
Our dog, Mara, will be the main responsibility. She lives a couple of walks a day & have a mile-long loop through woods that we use regularly, or she’d love to explore new places. She doesn’t mind being left at home while you explore the local area.
