A Beautiful 19th Century Home in the Semi Rural Location of Horsford, Norwich UK.


The magnificent home is set in approximately. 2 acres of gardens, 3acres of paddocks  and 4 acres of beautiful  woodland which is making this assignment ideal for enjoying the outdoors with the cutest little Spaniel, “Buddy”.

I am located just north of Norwich with  easy access to the local shops and the city of Norwich just a half hour bus ride away. Similarly, the Norwich coast is a short bus ride to the North.

So I get to importantly look after Buddy along with a beautiful black cat who takes great delight in prersenting her “catch of the day” which generally consists of a live … but slightly worse for wear mouse. The sad part is that she painstakingly takes hours to catch her prey only for Buddy to come along and with just one sniff and a gulp manages to, like magic’ makes the mouse disappear… never to be seen again..(hopefully) !!!

But this really is a gloriously peaceful and tranquil location where my duties also include keeping a watchful eye on the grazing habits of two horses and overseeing the latest addition to the property which now boast a productive bee hive.

What the host has said:

Anthony was a great first sitter for us.

He gave us confidence over the telephone, and by regular contact before and during the sit.

Our pets were well looked after according to our instructions and he welcomed us home with a tidy house and a lovely meal and stocked fridge.

We would be happy to have Anthony sit for us again.
