Housesit 5 months Roydon State Essex England
Hi, Would you be interested in house & dog sitting for us while we visit Perth, Australia from 27th November 2007 to 30th April 2008? James is English and Jean is an Australian. We enjoy summers in Perth Australia and in Roydon UK. Jack is an 8 year old collie/spaniel cross, absolutely adorable and very well trained. We would prefer the applicant to have experience with a dog and are not in full time employment. The cottage has 2 bedrooms, living/dining, kitchen & bathroom plus a conservatory. Broadband is available. Roydon is a rural village in the Essex area about 40 minutes from Liverpool Street Station, London. There are some beautiful walks nearby as well as a post office & shop, doctor, pharmacy, hairdresser, pubs etc. A bus stop is over the road from the cottage and train station a 10 minute walk away. Please email as soon as possible if this opportunity appeals to you. Kind regards James & Jean
