Housesit 7 – 15 May 2021 in rural Herefordshire UK – care for ducks, 1 hen and Ratty the cat
We seek suitable house sitter for a week each May. My small pet flock of Indian Runner ducks, (wine bottles on legs), 1xhen and Ratty the cat. Our 16th century cottage is set in rural tranquility, north Herefordshire.
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 villages and towns. County city. 6-9 miles. Many places of interest to visit – mediaeval, black and white, with quaint shops, Inns and restaurants. Leominster is the nearest larger town. As a market town it dates back to the Middle Ages and offers lots to see and do.
My friendly ducks, potter around after sleeping in their duck houses at night. ‘Blue Saber & 2 Jedi’ and ‘Padawan, Galaxy, Teasle & Coco’ make up PUDDLES AND PALS, my small, friendly pet flock of Indian Runners. They enjoy their day in the garden or adjoining duck area. Sometimes tiddy ducklings are in the nursery, depending upon hatching dates.
Ratty cat, (Ratatouille) sleeps in the kitchen, where a wood burner provides cosy heat. He loves people.
Rhoda – our hen lives in the duck area. Their daily routine will be explained in full.
This large historic 16th century cottage offers an idyllic rural life. Built in local stone, our home has several rooms and a large, pretty cottage garden, with pots & hanging baskets in summer which make it a place of tranquillity. An orchard and several fields give a beautiful rural setting.
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. Please note we would prefer not to have housesitters with their own pets. Non smokers only please. Thank you.
We hope you have an enjoyable stay at our rural retreat in exchange for looking after ‘Puddles and Pals’ & Ratty.”
