Herts country village home and pet sit
We are a family of 5 looking for house sitters to care for our much loved pets and home for 10 days in early April. Our cockapoo Tiggy is 14 months old, still quite a puppy, loves people and affection, our 2 tabby cats Bertie and Bumble are also very friendly and fairly self sufficient. We’ve used Trusted House Sitters twice over the last year and have had a brilliant experience both times.
Our Home & Location
We live in a detached house on the edge of Little Gaddesden, about a 7 minute drive from Berkhamsted Town. We are surrounded by green fields, commons and the 500 acre National Trust Ashridge Estate with its beautiful woodlands, deer and numerous walks.
Little Gaddesden's Pub (dog friendly!) and shop are a 15 minute walk away, (or a 3 minute drive). Berkhamsted is a beautiful small but bustling old town with restaurants, pubs and bars, weekly street markets, boutiques, antique shops, and a large Waitrose....
Our house is set in an acre of garden with decking area, bbq and outside seating area for nice weather days. There is an adjacent games room/gym for wetter ones. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We are looking for sitters who love pets and ideally have experience of looking after a young dog as Tiggy will be just over one. Although we have an acre of garden for her to trot around in, she will need walking for 45mins - 1hr each day. Importantly, because she loves people and is still very young, she needs sitters who can be with her for most of the time.
Our cats Bertie and Bumble are much more self sufficient, incredibly friendly and love cuddles....
We have a brilliant cleaner and gardeners so there is no maintenance as such - we ask only that the house be left as we leave it, and that our pets are kept well and happy! + More info
