Description

We’re going away for a week in the Autumn, and we need housesitters to care for our cat, ducks and hens in a rural idyll in Herefordshire, West MIdlands UK.

LOCATION
A rural track off a country lane leads to our 16th century stone built cottage. It is set within 5 acres of land with views to faraway hills. The village is in rural Herefordshire in the UK. A main road, reached by the lane leads to country towns or nearby county city. 6-9 miles. Many places of interest to visit. Leominster is the nearest large town. As a market town it dates back to the Middle Ages and offers lots to see and do.

OUR PETS
A flock of ducks, divided into 3 groups potter around during the day. There are some in our orchard, some in the garden and duck paddock. They sleep in duck houses at night. They are fed am & pm. Moby Duck, Whippy & Darth Vader are the drakes. All are friendly.
Our cat Ratty (Ratatouille) sleeps in the kitchen, where a wood burner provides cosy heat. He loves people.
Alleluia & Rhoda – a cockerel & hen live in a barn when not pottering during the day.

OUR PROPERTY
This historic cottage has been renovated, and offers a comfortable life. Our home has a large, pretty cottage garden, with pots & hanging baskets in summer which make it a place of tranquillity.
For housesitters, the king size bed in the Floral Room is comfortable, with bathroom & shower next door. Kitchen facilities include Neff oven, electric hob, microwave, washing machine, fridge & freezer.

We have Garden furniture & BBQ for outdoor eating and relaxing.

We hope you have an enjoyable stay at our rural retreat in exchange for looking after ‘Puddles and Pals’ & Ratty.”
