About this assignment

An animal lover is required to house sit in our beautiful 2 bedroomed cottage, located in Cornwall.
You will need to be a non-smoker and have your own transport as we are not on a bus route.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

We need somebody to look after our cocker spaniel, one cat and seven chickens. Our cocker spaniel needs at least one hours walk each day. You will be responsible for feeding all the animals, collecting eggs etc.
During the summer you will need to water some plants and our vegetables.

What are the good features of the property and location

We live in a very quiet hamlet at the bottom of a beautiful valley, therefore you will need your own transport. We also have a large garden and a small field.
We are very close to the town of Launceston, roughly a 40 minute drive to the coast and 20 minutes from both Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment

Please only apply if you like a quiet, peaceful location.
The nearest shops are in Launceston, which is 2.5 miles away.
You need to be a non-smoker, be a kind person and have a love of animals.

Testimonials

Wonderful pets in a wonderful home!

We looked after Jas, Millie & the chickens in Yvette & Andy's beautiful home and gardens in May 2022. We had the opportunity to meet Yvette & Andy the evening before they set off & they made us feel extremely welcome. Yvette & Andy explained everything we needed to know about looking after the animals as well as giving us lots of great information on walks and beaches in the surrounding areas. Yvette & Andy were always contactable if we had any questions. Neither Jas, Millie nor the chickens were any trouble at all & it was a pleasure to look after everyone. We hope to return and help out again in the not so distant future!

House & pet sitting in Launceston

Yvette and Andy are a very nice couple, friendly, kind and welcoming and they live in a peaceful hamlet located in gorgeous countryside. They have a beautiful home, very tidy and comfortable and the garden is a delight. On this occasion, we looked after Millie the cat who is very affectionate and appreciative of a comfortable lap and the chickens who are all characters, as only chickens can be. Yvette had left us clear instructions about the house and the animals' requirements and was at the end of a phone or email if we had any questions. There is much to explore in the local area - perfect for walking and cycling and the North and South coasts of Cornwall/Devon are within easy driving distance. We have no hesitation in recommending this sit, it was an absolute pleasure.

House sit

Yvette and Andy made us feel very welcome upon arrival and right at home in their beautiful cottage and gardens nestled in the hills near Launceston. Their dogs and cat were all really good natured and we were glad to be there to look after Misty when she took ill. We also enjoyed looking after the chickens and collecting the eggs in the morning - we might have to get some of our own I think! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house sit to anyone looking for a peaceful, rural location in an immaculate house with lovely animals.
