Steven - The BespokeHouseSitter

51, Professional House and Petsitter

"Steven did a wonderful job looking after my house, cats, dogs and chickens while I was away on a work assignment. My pets were happy and my house was immaculate when I came home. I would happily recommend him to anyone needing this type of help."
K.N. Leeds (May 2018)

As well as years of experience as a house and petsitter, I am a General Nurse and a Registered Midwife.
I now look after families away from the healthcare setting.
I am a professional house sitter and charge for my bespoke services. I have a website with further information including a House Sitting Agreement and how the service can benefit your family. Please contact me for the web address.

I have owned a Belgian Shepherd dog and a terrier and so am used to varying temperaments and characteristics of dogs.
I care for cats, rabbits, reptiles and fish, poultry and farm animals.
I can administer medication to animals; giving correct doses, however complicated. I know the appropriate action to take if something goes wrong by drawing on my medical experience.
And, naturally, there is lots of attention given to your animal family!

My aim is to provide you and your family with continuity - particularly helpful with rescued pets who benefit from being cared for by the same person when you are not there.

I can give (and encourage you to take) contact details of previous clients so that you can get the reference to suit you. Please see the endorsements on this site for a taster!

I would not only like to care for your family home and loved ones but also to offer something that will make your time away/return more enjoyable....

Your "menu" includes "those jobs you hate or never get round to" and those that will make your homecoming/ going back to work/school as smooth as possible.
You will still feel as if you are on holiday on the day you return, arriving home with little to do or worry about......

I have an enhanced DBS check (2020), full UK driving licence and am a UK citizen.

I also have assistants that can cover for me if I cannot attend a housesit for the full duration. If this was required then a meeting would be set up so that everybody is comfortable with plans.

It is always good to meet up in advance of your trip if possible - or at least have a long phone chat! I can then create and keep a detailed profile for you, ensuring that you feel happy and relaxed while you are away from home

It would be great to hear from you


"I couldn't praise Steven highly enough for the care and professionalism that he showed before, during and after our pet sit. Our pets are our primary concern and it has been difficult to find someone reliable and caring to look after them. Steven certainly met the brief.
He kept us updated as to their progress whilst we were away (emails and photos) and was really helpful in taking our blind cat to the vet a number of times in our absence as he became unwell the day before we flew!
We returned home to find very happy animals and a beautiful clean house which was so appreciated.
We have booked Steven for June, September and next February which I hope speaks volumes about how happy we were with his service."

Absolute superb service from Steven,couldn't have asked for anything more. This was the first time we had left Tia our rescue Staffie and she was very happy and well cared for. The house was immaculate on our return and Steven kept in contact via WhatsApp whilst we were away. Would highly recommend Steven.

Steven was amazing. Our dog instantly took to him and we got daily updates and photos. When we came home our house was immaculate and we had a very happy dog. Looking forward to having Steven house sit for us again.

No rating Steven was a godsend!! Not only was he able to help us out at such short notice, but he put us both at ease when we met him for the first time on the morning we were going away. He was easy to contact, kept his word and we came home to a clean and tidy home and two very happy dogs! He sent emails with photos of the dogs, who were most pleased to have someone play 'ball' with all day and kept us generally updated. We have already spoken to him about some other dates and would be ... MORE

No rating Steven did a great job in looking after our house and menagerie of dogs, cat, bunnies, fish, reptiles and my Mum! One of our dogs was sick and Steven ensured that he was seen by the vet and that we were kept up to date with any developments. He was very accommodating with our ever changing travel arrangements and did a great job cleaning our crusty oven. We would definately recommend Steven and would be happy for him to sit for us again.

No rating Steven is a treasure. Our house and our 2 dogs were brilliantly cared for and he was a delight to deal with. The photo updates during our holiday were great. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Safe house!

There is nothing more secure than having people at home while you're away. Get a house sitter.
