Long term housesit 1 August – 12 Sept rural cottage in BUCKS UK, near Henley on Thames – 1 cat
We have an 18 month tabby cat, Lucia .She is very self contained and occupies herself outside in the garden when she is not napping, but does enjoy the occasional cuddle.
Our property is a brick and flint cottage on top of the Chiltern Hills with new rear additions. It is within a 1 acre plot backing onto fields and woods.
We reside in a small Chiltern village with a pub and cricket field within walking distance in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The area has many wonderful foot paths and the historic towns of Henley and Marlow are just a few miles away.
A larger village is 2 1/2 miles away with Post Office, Tesco Express, pubs and take away Fish and Chips, Chinese and an Indian restaurant.
There is off-road parking, reliable Wi-Fi and the house is fully equipped for a comfortable stay. The double guest room has its own ensuite toilet and shower room. The garden has many seating and barbecue areas. There is also a large greenhouse and you are welcome to all its produce.

Things to know: Lucia will let you know when cuddle time is up and she will only let you carry her under your arm on your hip .
