Our house is Great Oaks, in Burnham,
Buckinghamshire. Just 25 miles from London.
DATES: We need a sitter or sitters for various dates
It is a large detached house in rural area of Burnham on the edge of Burnham Beeches.
We are in a very quiet location and no not near a busy road. A small road runs alongside the property, there is traffic but is almost single lane.
Anyone staying would benefit from having a car.
There is a lounge and a large kitchen with cooker, microwave, washing machine and drier.
There is TV, wifi internet access, and heating (we use log fires in the winter but there is oil fired central heating as well)
There is a phone line.
There are four bedrooms but essentially 2 of them would be available for use by house sitters. The available bedrooms are double rooms and there is a bathroom with shower and bath and toilet. There is also a toilet downstairs.
There is a garden and patio and space for parking off road .
We have two cats who live outside but we would want the housesitters to feed them ideally twice a day

ABOUT BURNHAM BEECHES
Located in South Buckinghamshire and around 25 miles from London, Burnham Beeches was acquired by the City of London in 1880, in response to a threatened purchase by residential developers. It was for sale as "land suitable for the erection of superior residences". There has probably been woodland on the site since the retreat of the last ice age, but today's landscape was created by people.
One of the three Scheduled Ancient Monuments on the site shows that the area was inhabited as early as the Iron Age. Today Burnham Beeches is characterised by a diverse mixture of ancient woodland, wood pasture, coppice, ponds and streams, grassland, mire and heathland. The sites most prominent features are the veteran Beech and Oak pollarded trees which provide a stable habitat for many rare and endangered deadwood species
The Beeches attracts many visitors who appreciate its tranquillity as well as its rich diversity of habitats and wildlife. Burnham Beeches has been a valuable recreation amenity for local people and visitors for over 125 years and is managed both as a public open space and also for conservation.
In 2007 new visitor facilities including a café, toilet block and Information Point were unveiled by the Lord Mayor.
