Attention to your home and pets

Facilitator and writer

I love this 'job'... I get to go to lovely new places, meet lovely animals and sometimes get to tend lovely plants and gardens too. In return, I offer you total attention to whatever is most important to you.

My own home is in Yorkshire, but I love to travel around the UK. I'm technically retired now but as a former psychotherapist I facilitate wellbeing in nature workshops and write about the natural world, so I like to visit as many places in the UK as I can. I particularly enjoy coastal, rural - even isolated - but love the cultural opportunities available in cities too.

I've had a lot of house/pet sitting experience over the last ten years or so, though not so much the last two. Partly because of looking after my father when he became ill, and of course the pandemic. However, I'm on my second sit this summer - two more booked - and really enjoying being free to travel again.

When I'm looking after your home (animal care permitting) I'll explore the local area a little and spend indoor time reading, writing and catching up on tv/films etc on my laptop. And of course keeping your home clean and tidy.

The photos are Maggie and Eddie, my daughter's dogs, plus a few wilder friends... though M&E have their wild moments too...

Clean driving licence, by the way, and double vaccinated.

I look forward to hearing from you, and to my next adventure.

Our first foray into the world of housesitters, and I think we struck gold. Everything was looked after well and Nelson barely noticed we had been away. Can't recommend Daphne highly enough.

Daphne is the house-sitter from heaven - considerate, meticulous, competent and professional. She took excellent care of our little menagerie of guinea pigs, hamster and stick insects, in addition to watering the garden and a plethora of indoor plants. She left the house, in addition, spotless and tidy. I really appreciated that she came to stay the night before her house-sit started, so that she could get to grips with what needed doing while we were away for 10 days. I strongly recommend her ...

Happy pets!

A house sitter provides loving, full-time, home-based pet-care while you're away.
