Housesitting 28 Feb – 8 Mar 2020 nr Great Missenden BUCKS UK – 1 friendly dog
We live in a beautiful Georgian house which we have spent the last two years renovating. The house is spacious with a managed garden. The property is now in good condition with restored original features. We love it and feel very lucky to be in this glorious part of the country. We have redesigned the garden which is approximately half an acre, with a lawn, flower beds and a vegetable patch. The new green house is a delight and I am becoming “green fingered”! We would want any guests to care for our home as if it were their own.
Our dog, Saffie, is a short haired German Pointer, she is nine years old and is extremely fit. She is walked twice a day for about 40/50 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes in the evening. She is very loving and well behaved. She can be left on her own for up to five hours, but never on her own overnight.
We have a gardener who comes in once a week to cut the grass and look after the flower beds. Also we have a cleaner who comes in once a week to clean and tidy the house. But we will need you to water our pot plants and keep the house clean and tidy while you are housesitting.
Our village is near the towns of Great Missenden and Amersham both with direct links to London. The village has a local shop, public tennis courts and we are surrounded by fabulous walking country. There are many points of interest within a short drive away you can reach a number of National Trust properties (e.g. Hughenden, Waddesdon) , the market towns of High Wycombe, Beaconsfield and Chesham.
