We are a couple in our 50's/60's, who have a converted barn in rural Cornwall. We have had several house sitters I the past, and have learned that it can be a very good arrangement.
Our Home & Location
We live in a rural hamlet in the beautiful Tamar Valley, 4 miles from Callington and 6 miles from the thriving market town of Tavistock. Tavistock has many independant shops and a fortnightly farmers market. We also have a garage and local shop just 2 miles away. We are 40 mins from the coast, Dartmoor is near by and there are several National Trust properties in the vicinity.It is a great area for walking, cycling and riding. We have helpful neighbours near by for advice if required. The detached house is set in gardens and a small orchard.
We are looking for a house sitter who will walk, play with and groom the dogs. We would also like someone who will keep the house and garden tidy and clean. There may also be a few gardening jobs.
The house sitter must have their own transport...
Whoever comes to stay will need their own transport, and please note WE DO NOT PAY TRAVELLING EXPENSES TO GET HERE. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Our PWD, Portia, is fantastic fun, but is quite high energy. She needs properly exercising every day, and grooming at least twice per week. We have another bitch, Phoebe, who we intend to put into kennels - unfortunately the two of them do not get along too well, and so it would be unfair to leave them both with a house sitter.
