Housesit in Lincolnshire Wolds UK, 7 – 13 November, 2 dogs + 8 horses and ponies
I live in a 3 bedroom house in a rural setting, just outside the Lincolnshire village of Market Rasen. We are in a pretty rural situation, however, there is a farmer about 1/2 mile away. You will need a vehicle. This is a historic town with characterful 19th Century architecture. The name is recorded in the Domesday Book. There is a weekly farmers’ market every Tuesday and Friday. There are other local markets throughout the week in Caister and Gainsborough – LINK – https://www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/my-services/visitors-and-leisure/things-to-do/markets/ The property is located at the top of the Lincolnshire Wolds an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The house has a spare double bedroom and a spare single bedroom for our housesitter guests. We also have a bath and a separate shower. The kitchen has an Aga to heat the house and for cooking. Plus we have a wood burning stove.
– TIMING –
Please could you plan to arrive as early as you can on Sunday 7 November so I can introduce you to the pets and show you around.
– DOGS –
The petsitting assignment is a request for a caring person or couple to mind my beloved pets. I have 2 dogs, a 9 year old Newfoundland dog who is blind and deaf, and simply needs a kindly hand, feeding and watering. I also have a 1 year old black German Shepherd who was rescued. She was very nervous when I first brought her home, now she is more relaxed, however, she does still get separation anxiety and needs to know you are there. She will follow you around the house because she likes company and wants to know you are there. Do take her with you when you go out, she will like that. I walk both dogs separately, because they need different things.
– HORSES & PONIES –
I have 8 horses and ponies, and while this sounds like a lot of work it really isn’t. We are set up with automated watering, you just need to check that the water hasn’t frozen so that they have a constant supply. Plus they need a hay bale regularly. I’ll show you how and when.
There is WIFI at the house, but mobile reception is better in the garden.
