More Information

Hi all you house sitters, who fancies Christmas and New Year (and a bit more) in the lovely Derbyshire country side!! We are seeking a Cat / house sitter for about 6 weeks from the 3rd December 2019 until around the 15th January 2020, we require someone to look after our house and three cats, while we are away. You must be very animal friendly and be prepared to keep the house clean and tidy and most importantly to look after our three cats, Dusty, Sooty, and Gracie.

What responsibilities are required of the house sitter
You must be reliable, tidy and non smokers, and be willing to look after our cats. The well being of our cats if of prime importance they are fairly self sufficient only needing feeding twice a day but need to be looked after and a lot of loving and affection when they want it. Dusty has a special diet so attention to detail with his food and water is important. Other than that just keep the house tidy and keep the house safe and cosy.
What are the good features of the property and location
Lovely quiet cul de sac location on the edge of the Peak District, which is less than 7-8 miles away. There is a small town just 5 mins away with Tesco supermarket garage etc and the citys of Derby and Sheffield are only 30-40 mins drive away. We have a small but comfortable centrally heated 2 bed bungalow with a large private garden to the rear. It has internet broadband and telephone available if needed, we also have satellite TV.
There is fantastic scenery and walks available in the Peak District with plenty of other attractions nearby such as Chatsworth house and Sherwood Forest.
If you don't drive there is a regular bus service to the local area towns close by.

What does the house sitter need to consider before applying for this assignment
You must be here each day to feed the cats in the morning and evening and keep the house tidy, but days out are no problem. Must be 100% reliable. You will be required to pay your own way (food, etc) but we will provide all the electric and heating and of course the cat food.
You must be able to get your selves to our region of the UK but we can pick you up from the railway station if required.
We may require references.
