We are looking for a house sitter in July this year to look after our house and pets. Anyone applying must love dogs as ours are very affectionate. We are in a beautiful rural location just below the Surrey Hills, but are also within easy access of Horsham (7 mins) and Guildford (25 mins), both of which have very nice shops and a cinema. We have plenty of outdoor space, far-reaching country views from our kitchen and a pool. You can do a lovely long walk from our side gate through a farm and woods (and to a pub) and there are also LOTS of lovely walks in the area – we are a five minute drive from an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We are also only ½ hour from the coast (Wittering), so beach walks are easy, and about 40 minutes from the South Downs National Park. For anyone coming from further afield to explore the area there are lots of historic houses, monuments and castles within easy reach of us – the nearest is probably Arundel, but Windsor Castle is only 40 minutes.
This housesitting would suit someone who genuinely loves animals and who either wants to hang out at the house enjoying the view, animals and pool a lot (perhaps a writer, or family, or a couple who just like to relax in nice surroundings) or someone who wants to walk a lot. We have two very energetic, waggly spaniels who love people and love to walk! We also have two rabbits, a cat and ponies – these live out in the fields so need very little looking after. They just need to be kept an eye on (there is a vet next door so easily called in if needed – very rarely!) and their water trough filled up when empty. Aside from that it is pretty straightforward.
If you think this might be of interest then please do call for a chat and we will happily answer any questions.
