  • Why have a house sitter?  

Think of the benefits of having a house sitter; to begin with, your insurance company will love it! In fact, many household insurance policies will not cover you if your property is unoccupied for more than one month. For your own peace of mind, consider a house sitter! The chances of you being burgled are vastly reduced, as your house will have that 'lived-in' look. You don't have to rely on family or neighbours to collect mail or turn lights on and off. You don't have to pay for a gardener to come in and cut the lawn. All your pets will be cared for in their own environment.


We will NEVER leave your property unoccupied overnight, without prior, written agreement. Our written agreement with you will detail your daytime needs too; for example, do you happily go out for the day, or do your animals require that you're not away for more than a couple of hours?


Whilst we are house sitting for you, we guarantee to keep your house clean and tidy and your garden maintained. All we ask is that you leave your house in a clean condition for us when you leave, and provide all necessary cleaning materials and gardening equipment.




  •  Not just houses!

We don't just house sit in ordinary houses; we are available to care for empty holiday properties, or 'closed for winter' b&b's and hotels. We will also take on short term sits for smallholdings, so you can finally take that well deserved holiday!



  • No fees for most sits

Unlike many house sitters, we do not normally charge for our house-sitting services (see the pet-sitting page for more information), but we do expect that all utility bills are paid for by the client. We ask that you make sure all services will continue without interruption, including gas bottles and oil containers.

We are not an agency; our clients deal directly with us. We are very flexible and can be available for house sitting for anything from a few days to a few months - just ask!
