Beautiful West country home with friendly dogs and cats for company needing sitters
I am looking for some very special people to come and look after my animals and house later this year. We plan to be away for 2 weeks just before Easter and then again for 3 weeks in the summer. If you like the idea of roaring fires, or enjoying the sun in a garden with lovely views, country walks on the hills, or beside beautiful canals, English country pubs and all with dogs and cats for company then this could be the sit for you. We have 3 very friendly dogs ( a rough haired Jack Russell aged 15, a Border Terrier cross aged 10 and a Beddlington/Whippet cross, aged 3), 2 very sweet cats and 4 chickens! We live in a beautiful village 10 mins from Marlborough town, with the Avon and Kennett Canal running through it.
Our Home & Location
Our village is only 10 mins from Marlborough and 2 mins from Pewsey (train direct to London Paddington) in the heart of the Pewsey Vale in Wiltshire and is very pretty (it has even won the English Village of the year competition a number of times!). The Kennett and Avon canal runs through the village.
The house is a detached property set in 2 acres of garden with direct and gorgeous views over the fields to the Pewsey downs. It has 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and an open fireplace in the sitting room. There is a large kitchen with double cooker and all the other usual appliances. We are 15 mins from Avebury and 30 from Stonehenge as well as being close to the cathedral towns of Salisbury and Winchester. Bath and Bristol are an hour away.
Responsibilities & Pets
I am looking for someone who is very keen on animals and who will feed our dogs, cats and chickens daily, give them lots of cuddles (not the chickens!) and keep them company as I do! Our dogs need a good walk, or two, each and every day (rain or shine), which is easy here as we have the beautiful Pewsey downs on our doorstep.
You will need to take care of our house as you would your own and you will need your own transport....
Hopefully we will get some decent weather this summer, and if so there will be a small amount of gardening and watering required daily (just a few pots around the terrace area ). + More info
