    Description

    Hi,
    We (Chris and Nicky and dog Luana) live in the garden of England...also known as Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent. Our little cottage home comprises of two bedrooms, a craft room and a small enclosed garden, all nestled in the centre of the town. Literally the centre, it is 120m to the nearest supermarket and a five-minute walk to the famous Pantiles and 3-minute walk from an ice skating rink.

    We are looking for someone to join us for a couple of weeks to help with household jobs, cleaning, finally clearing the attic, painting the bathroom, building some garden furniture, and most importantly helping with the dog. We would like to meet you over Zoom before we moved forward so that we can all get to know each other and make sure that all fit well.

    My (Nicky) family lives in the Netherlands and I have not been able to see them for two years because of the pandemic. We are looking to travel there for Christmas and need someone to look after the house and the dog. We will make the house Christmassy and a wonderful place to be for the holidays.

    Luana (dog) is a 6-month-old Lurcher puppy and is the most cuddly (lazy pants) dog in the world. She needs one good walk a day and then just crashes out on the sofa for hours on end.

    We are an English, Dutch and a tiny bit of French and Spanish speaking household. I (Nicky) am a creative person so the house is filled with art supplies that you can use. Chris is a clinical psychologist and is filled with endless interesting conversations.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    From Ice rinks to small cobbled streets, wine bars to independent art stores, Tunbridge wells is a glorious victorian town in the centre of kent. We even have a steam train that you could take for the day and explore the surrounding forests. If you are up for taking a 20-minute bus, it will drop you off in the heart of Winnie-the-pooh land aka. the Ashdown forest.
