I'm looking for a sitter who can do 2-3 days here and there (mainly week days) or maximum 1 week. I'm also looking for someone to look after my home...not just use it as a base for their own holiday. I need someone who will be here almost all the time, with the exception of 2-3 hours during the day and no more than 30 minutes in the evening. I need someone who is mature, sensible, discreet, quiet and a non-smoker. Single people or couples are welcome but I cannot accommodate children.
The main responsibility is just being here. Then there's my animals, which require a maximum of 1 1/2 hours per day. I have 2 ponies (stabled on shavings, so easy to muck out), 7 sheep, 2 dogs (which don't really need walking), 2 cats (who do their own thing) and 1 rabbit. I also have 5 geese, 4 turkeys, 9 ducks and about 30 chickens (including cockerels). These are easy to care for, as they're free range all the time. They come and go as they please.
Free fishing on a 1/4 mile of private river. Fresh free range eggs. Edge of the village location but only 10 minutes drive to town.
This is an assignment to house sit...not a base for a holiday. I am prepared to pay a good rate to the right person / people. I'm sorry but I cannot accommodate children.
