About this assignment

I am looking for sitters who like walking and are very fond of dogs and who have had dogs of their own/plenty of experience of pet care. Portland is very dog friendly and dogs are welcome in the pubs and cafes. Poppy loves going to these places and socialising with other owners and their dogs.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter

Simply to look after and walk Poppy an affectionate Patterdale terrier who is 11 years old (but still very playful) and Winston (18 months) also to keep the house clean and tidy and water the plants.
Winston is a nervous boy so would need an understanding, experienced sitter but he is very affectionate.

What are the good features of the property and location

The property is a lovely terraced house on the island of Portland. You have shops and nice pubs very close by and fabulous coastal walks. The house has 3 bedrooms on 4 floors. It is spacious and light and has fab sea views!

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

It is quite hilly on the island so you need to be quite fit.
Also there are a few flights if stairs in the house.

Testimonials

Ideal village location.

Had a very nice stay in The Loft. Judy was very easy to get on with and supplied comprehensive information. Poppy was a very playful and loveable canine walking partner. The walks available both in the immediate vicinity and nearby villages and country were just indescribable. You have to experience them. Would recommend Judy and Poppy without any hesitation.

Lovely Cotswold apartment.

Very pleasant apartment in a very cute Cotswold Village. Very loveable dog Poppy, who loves walks and tummy tickles. Apartment is above a shop and is opposite a Bakery and a small supermarket which is very handy for day to day supplies. Would recommend and be happy to return anytime. Owner Judy is a very freindly and lovely person.

Another wonderful visit!

Mandy and I were lucky enough to look after the lovely Poppy again. She is such a beautiful little character and the stay at The Loft and our walks across the fields in wonderful Winchcombe were fantastic. I would highly recommend this Sit.

Perfect House Sit

This was my first House Sit and what a fantastic experience! The owner Judy was a wonderful person and 'The Loft' was am amazing place to stay. Set in the main street of Winchcombe, a beautiful Cotswold village it was an absolute pleasure. The other wonderful side to this sit was the beautiful 'Poppy' - a gorgeous Patterdale terrier. We spent many hours roaming the fantastic Cotswold hills together and I was sad to leave her when my time came to an end. If my house sits are all like this I will be extremely happy and will be very happy to return again if I am needed.
