Beautiful home in Ditchling at the foot of the South Downs
We are busy empty nesters with a house in Mallorca and spend 8-10 weeks a year there. We’d like a house sitter for times when we’re there or for the odd weekend when we’re in London. Our pets are terrically loved by us and we can only leave them with equally devoted animal lovers.
Our Home & Location
Ditchling is a quintessential bustling English village with 2 pubs, a post office and locally run shops and cafes 8 miles north of Brighton. Our house has a large garden which includes a wood and backs onto the South Downs- brilliant for foraging! We have stables in the corner of the garden and a gateway into 11 acres. There is a wooded 15 minute walk to the village, with Hassocks and Burgess within a 15 minute drive away.
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities would be feeding, walking and playing with the dogs, feeding the cat, watering patio pots, and ideally mucking out, feeding and grooming the horses (if a pet sitter isn’t horsey we could find someone locally to come in daily for the horses) General upkeep of the house is appreciated but we do have cleaners who come weekly for a more thorough clean. Our gardeners come on a Friday so pet sitting pottering is allowed in the garden but not essential! Keeping the house lived in and cared for, with plenty of loving attention for the animals is the biggest request.
