I'm looking for a house sitter who can take care of my dog.
The house is in Darwen, which is a small market town north of Manchester and just south of Blackburn. It's a two bedroom, two reception room house, with a kitchen and bathroom (complete with both shower and bath!). There's a small yard out the back. As there's a living room and extra reception room there is space to set up a little office/desk area if needed.
There are many shops close to the house for buying food etc, and it's within walking distance to the train station where you can reach Manchester in just 45 minutes. (For those unfamiliar with travel in the UK dogs are allowed on trains!) There are some lovely walks nearby in the gorgeous English countryside, with Sunnyhurst Woods less than 10 minutes walk away - from here you can get all the way up to the Jubilee Tower. For those with a car it only takes just over an hour to reach the Lake District.
My dog, who's called Ira, is a very small bedlington whippet cross. She only needs one walk a day (although she would be happy with two!) of minimum 45 minutes. She's incredibly affectionate and loves curling up on people's laps for a stroke and a belly rub.
