We are Steve & Annie and are looking for a couple to provide chicken and house care whilst we are away for a couple of weeks in Greece.
Chicken care is easy, takes about 15 minutes per day and no experience is required.
The original part of our 4 bedroom house is part of a 16th century farmhouse. We have a large garden with a pond and orchard area. Mostly oversight and little maintenance required during the sit.
We have bikes you can use but the village is 6 miles from the centre of York and 3 miles from the nearest shops so you will probably want a car.
We have lots of experience of house swaps and have house sat ourselves in the past, though this is the first time finding a sitter on this site.
Ideally we are looking for somebody for the full period but we have local contacts who can look after the chickens for a few days if necessary. Our departure date won't be clear until later this week but we are happy if you arrived for a few days before we left.
Re Covid you will have a double bedroom and bathroom that will not be touched for several days before your arrival.
We realize this is a short notice ad (blame Covid again) and are happy to hear from anyone who can do only a part of this time period.
