We are looking for someone who would like to stay for periods of days or weeks while we are away. Dates flexible by arrangement, but in the first instance, for a short period from 18th August until 27th August. (We have had a late request to join friends on their upcoming holiday)
The responsibilities would include feeding and cuddling our 4 year old grey cat. She has a lovely nature and does not stray far from our house. We would expect the house sitter to manage any light gardening and housework.
The house has 4 bedrooms although only 2 are used as bedrooms, both having en-suite bathrooms. Car parking available. A short 5 minute walk to all amenities, shops, banks, bus station, train station (15 minutes walk) library. Country walks and footpaths to the Macclesfield Canal - 10 minutes away. The house is 15 years old, double glazed and centrally heated, located in a quiet environment. Direct train line into Manchester every hour. Buxton and Peak District, 40 minutes by car. Good broadband speed. Good road connections - M6, A50
May suit visitors to UK who need a base while exploring the area or visiting relatives. There would be limited house management tasks, so would suit someone working from home e.g. writer, software designer.
