Housesitting in the Chiltern Valley Buckinghamshire UK 2-12 August
Our profile is “Peterlee” if you want to see who we are.
We live in a rural village in the beautiful Chiltern Hills. We have a very friendly, loveable and well behaved dog who is energetic on walks, but peaceful when at home. We also have a cat who loves people – he can often enjoy spending time sat on your shoulder as you go about your business!
We do want our sitter to walk for an hour a day with the dog- whatever the weather. This is the most beautiful and varied walking area so it is really not a hardship if you like walking.
We do not want our dog to be left alone for longer than, say, 3 hours at a time. However, we are happy for her to go with the sitter if they go out for extended times….she is so friendly she wins the hearts of everyone without exception! Please note – we would not want overnights away because the cat also needs attention and company.
We have a small amount of lawn which takes about 20 minutes to mow. It would be good if it was done before we get back!
We have a cleaner once a week and the house is easy to keep up to scratch.
Our neighbours are very friendly and will be able to help with anything you might need. We have a superb Community Shop 3 minutes walk away which will allow you to stock up with all the basics as well as wonderful local produce of meat, poultry, eggs, veg, milk etc. Then there are Sainsbury’s and Waitrose supermarkets in our local town 10 minutes drive away.
