Easter and Summer let of house in Cambridge

This well presented Victorian semi detached house is located in Romsey Town, Cambridge. Romsey Town is a sought after area close to the mainline railway station and city centre and offers a wide range of local facilities including a variety of shops, restaurants and other services along the Mill Road. The house is a 10 minute cycle or bus ride to the city centre or a 30 minute walk.

We are offering our home at a significantly reduced rate, since we would like our tenant(s) to take good care of our three cats. Two of the cats are two years old and easy to take care of; they just needing a regular supply of dry food and attention. Our other cat is 16 years old and arthritic. As a result, she needs medicine adding to her wet food in the morning and there may be need for a litter tray.

The house is arranged over three floors and consists of three bedrooms (one including a study area), two bathrooms (both upstairs), a living room, a second living room with piano opening on to the kitchen. The house is suitable for a visiting couple or a family with young children. There are bunk beds in the childrens' room and a stairgate. The cats are used to young children. In addition, there is a small but pretty garden with a patio. There is a small lawn, bordered by flowers and a vegetable patch. In addition, there is a playshed and swing for the children.
There are many things to do in Cambridge and London is approximately an hour away by train.
Should you wish to go away for a weekend our neighbours would be happy to help look after the cats.
The house is cleaned every Thursday. We would be able to lend you use of our bicycles (two adults and two childrens bikes size 16" and 20").

We require a cat-loving tenant who will feed our cats twice a day and give them some attention. Neighbours can help out if you wish to go away for short periods of time. If the summer is hot, watering the garden occasionally would be appreciated.
