Reliable & experienced sitters

50, Retired professional

62, Retired professional

Trustworthy, animal loving, non-smokers.

We are both naturally tidy and conscientious people and, if entrusted with looking after your house and pets we would certainly take our responsibilities very seriously, as we have always done on previous house and pet sitting assignments (references available).

All the pets we have been lucky enough to look after have been delightful and we feel privileged to be invited to stay in some wonderful places to look after them.

We enjoy walking, gardening and photography. We spend our time traveling when we can (and writing a blog about it). We are very flexible as we incorporate housesitting projects as an integral part of our travels, especially when back in the U.K. and are happy to take on both short and long term assignments.

Carolyn & Clive are really friendly, reliable and experienced housesitters. Plus they're genuine animal lovers. They stepped in at very short notice to housesit for us after another cancelled. Planning and organising with them was really easy, and there was clear communication at every stage. Our dogs clearly loved them and they enjoyed some great walks in nearby countryside while we were away. We returned home to three really happy and relaxed animals, and a sparking clean house! We wouldn't ... MORE
CLAIRE AND DAVID (Marlow England, Mar 2020 - 1 week 1 day)
This was our first experience of using Housesitters and we consider ourselves so fortunate to have found Carolyn and Clive. From the very first meeting we had with them, we knew they would be perfect for looking after our house and our dog Tudds. He is blind but loves people and we feel that Carolyn and Clive built a special relationship with him. We were away for almost two months but they communicated with us regularly with updates and photos. Upon our return a delicious dinner was ... MORE

Carolyn and Clive were the best house sitters ever. Almost reluctant to recommend them so highly, in case I don't get to see them again! They were so kind to the dogs and the house and garden were kept perfectly. Regular emails and photos kept me updated. A real treat to have them here.
THERESA (Petworth England, Jul 2019 - 2 weeks 2 days)
Carolyn and Clive were the perfect house sitters. They instantly bonded with our dog, cats and chickens, and we were happy to leave for our holiday, knowing that the house and animals would be well looked after. While away, the garden was well-tended, and our many plants watered, Carolyn even potted up plants in my greenhouse for me. We had regular communication while we were away, and any problems were calmly and competently taken care of. We returned home to find an immaculately clean house, ... MORE

No rating Carolyn and Clive committed at fairly short notice which saved my working holiday. They were good at communicating beforehand so arrangements were clear. They clearly got on very well with my dog and enjoyed many Cotswold walks together. They sent a few photos and I was quite satisfied things were going well, so was able to relax and enjoy my trip. The house was left in immaculate order. I'd have no hesitation in recommending them.
SALLY (Nailsworth England, Sep 2018 - 2 weeks 4 days)
No rating Carolyn and Clive were excellent housesitters who did a fantastic job looking after our house and garden and most importantly our dog Albus and cat Mila. We got regular photos of Mila on Carolyn's lap and of Albus in the garden and having cuddles - both animals were very happy. Their communication was excellent both before the house sit and throughout our time away via email, Skype and Messenger and they kept us informed about vet visits and managed medication that needed to be given daily ...

FIONA & STEWART COUGHLAN (Lymm England, Mar 2018 - 3 months 1 week)
No rating Carolyn and Clive were superb, looking after our farmhouse and timid cat for six weeks..not only did they win the affection of Fishy ( the cat ) and kept us regularly updated, but also on our return the house was spotless, with flowers on the table and food in the fridge.. We have no hesitation in recommending this very kind and capable couple, we'd love them to house sit for us again.
MARK AND SUZY (Buntingford England, Feb 2018 - 1 month 1 week)
No rating We were very fortunate to have Carolyn and Clive housesit for us for 3 weeks while we were in South Africa. They are the dream house sitters that one could ever wish for as they are not only a very lovely couple but very honourable. You could also count yourself fortunate to have them as friends. They looked after our 10 month old very busy puppy and three cats so well that when we got back our puppy's tail dropped when the door closed behind them. He took a day or two to bounce back. ...

BEATRICE (Chorleywood England, Dec 2017 - 1 week 2 days)
No rating Carolyn and Clive looked after our dog, cat and home while we were away on holiday. We met them beforehand and felt completely relaxed and confident leaving home and pets in their care. They are very animal friendly people and extremely clean and tidy. We can highly recommend them to anybody.
CHRIS (Harwich England, Nov 2017 - 1 week)
No rating Carolyn and her husband Clive have been our house sitters three times now - and have agreed to come again next year. They look after our house and dog impeccably. They have sorted out burst pipes, lost mail and all sorts of other problems without any drama. If you are lucky enough to get them to look after your house and pets too, you will be delighted.
