I am looking for a house=sitter who can keep house in good, tidy condition and also look after my 2 Lurchers, taking them for either one long walk (2 hours or so) or 2 shorter walks. Good walking not far away, in the forestry area of Corwen or up Caer Drewyn mountain or in Clocaenog forest. The house is situated in a rural area, on a hillside, above the village of Gwyddelwern, with splendid views of the Berwyn mountains. It is 10 miles from Llangollen, 9 miles from Ruthin and 9 miles from Bala. Due to the rural location, it would be preferable for any applicant to have a car. There is ample parking at the property and there is a large garden (an acre or so) Besides walking and feeding the 2 dogs, watering potted plants outside would be another duty, if the weather is dry and also filling the bird feeders. There is a steam railway from Llangollen to Corwen which has a variety of shops including a pet shop, 2 butchers, a supermarket, a florist, a chemist etc. There are a number of restaurants and there is a fish and chip shop and a kebab takeaway. There are buses from Corwen to Wrexham, Ruthin and Barmouth and a steam railway from Llangollen to Corwen.
A very pleasant dog walk is along the canal tow path from the Horse Shoe Falls near the Chain Bridge hotel, Llangollen.
The house is centrally-heated and has a conservatory with lovely views over garden and landscape, ideal for anyone interested in bird-watching. A Maintenance man/Gardener calls to work at the property once a week.
The owner would welcome any sitters before leaving, and would discuss all facilities in detail to ensure a comfortable stay.
