Farming family needs sitter!
Hello, we are a farming family looking for house sitters to look after our farmhouse, two dogs, one old cob pony, two donkeys and five hens.
Our Home & Location
Our house is in a small and picturesque hamlet of about 14 houses surrounded by farmland. The historic cathedral city of Winchester is about 7 miles away, where there are some lovely attractions and excellent restaurants. We are close to several main roads and a small railway station with regular trains to London. There is a pretty garden and a paddock behind the house where our horse and donkeys live, and there are lovely walks over the farm, so dog walking is never a chore. We have a large farmhouse kitchen with an Aga, and a comfortable family room for relaxing. Accommodation for the house sitters is in a large bedroom with a king sized bed and an en suite bathroom.
Responsibilities & Pets
The dogs love a daily walk on the farm, and the hens need feeding daily. They lay delicious eggs but are getting a bit old so we never know how many we will get every day! Their house needs cleaning out once a week. The cob pony and donkeys are pretty self-sufficient - they live outside and need feeding once a day and their water topped up, and much appreciate a weekly brush and of course to be made a fuss of as often as possible. The house is easy to look after and just needs to be kept tidy. We have cleaners who come in once a week.
