Dog & Housesitter Required in Easton Piercy
We are a married couple in our 60's looking for a mature couple from the UK who are dog lovers to look after our Border Terriers Ziggy 8 Zac 7 years who are very friendly & lively. They are very much a huge part of our family.
Our Home & Location
Our home is a barn conversion in a quiet rural location with beautiful views of the countryside. There are 2 villages about 1 mile away called Yatton Keynell & Kington St Michael. The surrounding fields are full of wildlife & birds. Our home consists of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, TV room, open plan kitchen/diner & utility room. Lovely wood burner in the lounge for those cold evenings the rest of the house has underfloor heating.The back garden is totally enclosed for the dogs to run around in about 3/4 acre. There is a separate vegetable garden & greenhouse. A boulle area if you would like a game. There is good wifi available. The nearest town is Chippenham about 15 minutes away with all the usual supermarkets & shops. Bath 30 minutes & Malmesbury 15 minutes.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs love their walks every day in the surrounding countryside which is right on our doorstep. We do a long walk up to 2 hours everyday or 2 shorter walks. They wouldn't complain if more was offered. We don't leave them on their own for more than 3 hours in a day. There might be a bit of gardening or watering to do depending on the time of year.
