East Lothian: Lovely cat and spacious home, easy links for Edinburgh
We are looking for someone to take care of our home and our little silver tabby cat Smoky while we are away on holiday. Smoky likes to go in and out but she is also fine to be left all day as well, on days you would prefer to be out in Edinburgh or any of the lovely places on your doorstep in East Lothian. Our home is spacious with a garden and lots to do nearby.
Our Home & Location
We are in a rural location in the gorgeous county of East Lothian.
Our home is only a few miles from two park and ride stations (Wallyford and Newcraighall) both of which are served by regular trains which take you to the city centre of Edinburgh in under 15 minutes....
We're a few miles from the best beaches and countryside that beautiful East Lothian has to offer and in the nearby towns of Musselburgh, Tranent and Dalkeith you will find good shopping, restaurants, supermarkets etc - everything you need.
Alternatively just stay home and enjoy the peace and quiet of our rural home and the nearby historic woodland of Carberry Estate where Mary Queen of Scots visited on horseback in 1567. If you like to cycle there's a mountain bike trail just over the road, and we are close to the access point for national cycle route 1. By arrangement we may be able to leave you a car to use if you do not have one.
We have a large and busy family home. It is very comfortable and homely but be aware this is an older property, and by no means a show home.
Four bedrooms, large living/dining kitchen, second sitting room, bathroom and shower room. Dishwasher, wood burning stove, wifi and comfy beds. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
We would like someone who will feed our cat Smoky, morning and evening and be able to let her in and out in the morning/evening too. She likes to come in and out through windows as well as doors. She likes to be petted but can be a little bit timid until she gets to know you.
