Home and Away

60, Retired civil servant

62, Project Director

Hi !

We're Bev & Terry a couple originally from Ilkley in Yorkshire and have been married some 36 years. We have one daughter, who is currently studying at University of Melbourne, Australia

We've been lucky enough to have travelled to many parts of the world as well as extensively in the UK and always love to see somewhere new!

We have been spending time over the last 4 years in Australia to be closer to our daughter, and seeing more of that amazing country.

We both come from families that included a variety of pets from; Tropical fish, and Terrapins, Cats, Dogs Hamsters, and stick Insects ! We've been very fortunate to have looked after a number of homes in the UK (Devon, Hampshire, Dorset, Cambridge, Wilts. ) and in many parts of Australia, and to have taken care of some amazing Horses, cool Cats, ( cats with Asthma ! ) curious Llamas, lovable Dogs, Alpacas and Chickens. We can now add to the list some super sheep, giddy goats and a small herd of cows. How great is that !

(We don't have any pets of our own now )

We are both young at heart, quite fit, (thankfully non-smokers) keen gardeners, and like nothing better than spending time in the garden and on walks, just being outdoors and generally exploring new areas. Love taking the dogs for a nice walk (maybe other pets ! ). Bev is a great cook and Terry is very practical, can fix most things and loves solving problems.

We would love to look after your home, garden or grounds and occupants for you, and give you peace of mind that all will be well for the time that you are away.

Thanks for reading!

I cannot praise Bev and Terry enough, they extremely polite, accomodating, clean and lovely people. I was very nervous as we have never done this before and not had a holiday as a couple before. We left the house and to be honest didnt worry or think about anything at home until we drove back through the front gate. You could just tell everything was going to be fine. They certainly carry a calming influence!! Pets all extremely happy upon our return and gardens and allotment looking wonderful. ... MORE

Bed and Terry were lovely house sitters. This was our first time using the service and it was very much a gut decision on who we went with from the enquiries we received. We talked on the phone and they seemed experienced and very nice. All went very well, they looked after our house and pets very well. We would highly recommend them.

Thank you so much Vanessa, Bruce and family. We enjoyed the time in your super home and spending time with Tasso - who's so well behaved. Bev & Terry
Beverly and Terry are magnificent house sitters. They stepped in at very short notice and even drove from Melbourne to do the sit. They arrived just after we had left so they had no idea what they were walking into. I tried to leave notes to help but they did a great job. On our return the house was immaculate and both animals happy and healthy. I hope they enjoyed their time here.

Bev and Terry were a great choice. They dived right in, looking after my senior, requiring tablets twice a day, cat, and my 6 month old, still in training, puppy. They watered my garden and left the apartment cleaner than it is right now.... � Clear communication and personability left me reassured. Would recommend. Thanks guys

MOIRA (Drysdale VIC, Jan 2020 - 4 days) From Aussie House Sitters
Bev and Terry looked after our dog, cat and chickens for two weeks in October 2019. They were easy to communicate with and always replied to messages promptly. They were capable and experienced house sitters and we felt confident leaving our home and animals in their care. On our return everything was clean and tidy and just as we left it. Thank you Bev & Terry.

Bev and Terry were excellent, our Norfolk Terrier Percy adored them. I would thoroughly recommend them
 
ROSEMARY ANNE (Alton England, Sep 2019 - 1 week 4 days)
Terry and Bev are fantastic! They always take great care of my house and, more importantly my dog, Mabel. They leave the house immaculate every time they sit. They are super reliable and really lovely people. They have sat for me so many times and I have them lined up with my trips in 2019 and 2020 as they never let me down and I can not recommend them enough.
 
PHIL (Seddon VIC, Jul 2018 - 1 week 2 days) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating We had the pleaure of having Bev and Terry looking after our house and small dog for 12days. We have never used a housesitter/dogsitter before and we were both nervous and suspicious, but from the first conversation with them we could understand they are warm and kind people. I cannot begin to say how gratefull I am to have met Bev and Terry and for everything they have done for Simba and the house. We came back home from our holidays and found the happiest dog waiting for us. The garden ... MORE
ANGIE (Cambridge England, Aug 2017 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating We had the pleasure of having Bev and Terry house and dog sit for us for 6 weeks. We have never left our home or dogs for such an extended period of time and were quite anxious leaving our two 'kids' with strangers. Our anxiety was completely unfounded. We were extremely happy with how Bev and Terry looked after our home and a great relief to know that these two very special people looked after our two dogs with a great amount of care and affection. We arrived home at about 11.00pm after a very ... MORE
ANDREW (Mt Eliza VIC, Apr 2017 - 1 month 2 weeks) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating Terry and Bev house sat for us over the Christmas holidays and looked after our numerous fur babies, two kelpie dogs, two cats and 3 chickens. We came home to all happy and healthy fur babies and our home was just as we left it. Thank you to Terry and Bev for looking after everything for us while we were away. It took a load off our minds so we could enjoy our honeymoon. We would definitely recommend Terry and Bev to anyone needing their home and pets house sat.
MICHELLE (Bunyip North VIC, Dec 2016) From Aussie House Sitters
No rating I have had the pleasure of having Bev & Terry house & pet sit on two occasions with the third occasion about to take place for 7 weeks. They are very conscious and caring of my home and contents and I have always found my home neat, clean and tidy. My dog 'Bailey', cat 'Vegas' and turtle 'Lester' have always had the utmost care, and are very fond of Bev & Terry. They give the pets a lot of love and attention, hence Bailey & Vegas are always happy to be with them. My garden is maintained and ... MORE
