Cat & house sitter needed for lovely cottage in country estate
Our house is a mid-19th century cottage with a large garden on the edge of a 200 acre country estate. We have one 15 year old cat who needs a lot of love but is otherwise very easy to look after. We have a cat flap and she comes and goes as she pleases.
Our Home & Location
Our cottage has a log burning stove and oil fired central heating. It is in a really quiet, peaceful location but it is only a 20 minute walk from the nearest shop and train station. Even so a car would definitely be recommended. We can provide a car for the cost of adding you to our insurance. This is usually around £50 assuming you have a fairly clean driving record.
We have good wifi, Freeview TV and free phone calls to all UK and many international numbers. The mobile reception is poor though. We have a small home office with printer/scanner. This has a lovely outlook and is a good place to write or work....
We also have a cleaner who comes in for 2 hours once a week.
This would be a great opportunity for someone who needs space and quiet to write or work on a project. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
The main responsibility is feeding and watering our cat, Tonks, and cleaning her tray regularly. She also needs a lot of love since our other cat died just before Christmas 2015 and she still misses her.
I also feed the birds in the garden so would like the 3 bird feeders kept topped up....
Apart from that it would be taking good care of our house and garden. We have a greenhouse which needs watered and a medium sized vegetable plot which needs some attention. The growing season will be well underway so there will be a bit to do. The grass shouldn't need cut but there will be other things that need done in the garden. + More info
