We are looking for someone to housesit our home for 10 days over Christmas from the 17th December to the 27th. It is a 2 bedroom house on Craigengillan Estate in Dalmellington. The house has a lovely large farmhouse kitchen, livingroom with log burning stove, single bathroom with a shower over the bath and two bedrooms. The other two rooms are used as a study/arts and crafts room and a gym of sorts.

The estate boasts beautiful walks and is lovely and quiet. The fields adjoining the property have horses and sheep. There is a dark sky observatory on the estate where you can make a booking to visit in the evening.

We have two dogs, Harvee and Krusty and an elderly cat Gattita. All of whom will need to be fed morning and evening. They love people and are very affectionate. walking is not essential due to the size of the property, however, the dogs will not turn one down should you decide to take a stroll around the grounds.
