We will be away sailing for about six months Mid April to Mid September 2019 and are looking for someone to care for our fantastic Old Rectory in the South Tyne valley - an Area of Outstanding Beauty.
This is a wonderful part of the English countryside - unspoilt and so much less crowded than the Lake District which is only 45 mins drive away. About equidistant from the interesting towns of Penrith, Hexham and Carlisle there is plenty to easily explore in the area Hadrian's Wall, the glorious beaches of Northumberland. This is wonderful walking country - the Pennine way is just on the other side of the valley.
We are in a rural location so a car is necessary - the nearest town is Alston, about 2 miles away.
The house carers would have full responsibility for the house and its easily managed garden during our absence although we will be readily contactable by .
We're looking for experienced housesitters with excellent references. If this opportunity is of interest please contact us for more details.
