Home and Dog Sitting
My husband Malcolm and I are both retired with 3 dogs, 2 cats and Koi Carp. Our daughter Emma looked after our house and animals when we were away from the house on holiday. She has now left home! So we are looking for house sitters, to live in our beautiful 18th Century house who will love and walk our fully trained dogs plus look after our 2 cats and feed the Koi Carp.
Our Home & Location
We live in a Roman village where our house is situated within walking distance to the local pub and cricket ground. The local supermarket is a 2 mile drive away. There are fantastic walks in a wooded nature reserve, lake walks with pine trees and walks around the Silchester Roman Wall. Our house is detached, in a quiet lane with parking, Sky TV and superfast Wi-fi. Full use of house, with own double bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Beautiful, private south facing garden. Large towns, Basingstoke, Winchester and Newbury all a short drive away.
Responsibilities & Pets
Keep home as found and enjoy your stay! Feed dogs and cats twice a day. Koi just once in the morning. One or two walks a day lasting about an hour. Two working Labradors Tia and Twiggy with working Cocker Poppy who will all walk to heel on the lead and return to heel when requested after running free in the woods. The dogs all live indoors and have their own beds in a utility area and in our lounge with secondary individual beds near our wood burner in one of the living rooms!
