Hello...We are a retired couple looking for new challenges and adventure. We have considerable experience between us in looking after properties, pets and people. We are conscientious trustworthy loyal and reliable. After house sitting across the UK for over 3 years now, we have helped many house and pet owners with their needs.

Neither of us is ready to take full-time retirement at this stage as we feel that we are still young at heart, physically active and have a lot to offer.

We look forward to interacting with different cultures, being a part and blending in with the local community as opposed to being tourists. We would love to look after your home and your pets as if they were are own, ensuring your peace of mind whilst you are away, specifically with security, maintenance and overall care and attention for both your pets and your property.

If you would like more details e,g, CVs and photos please email us. You can check out a number of references from satisfied home owners on the web-site.

With kind regards Elisabeth and Richard

We felt confident that Elisabeth and Richard would be great sitters and our hopes were confirmed. We returned to a clean and tidy house and our cat was very relaxed. Thank you both for looking after our house and pets so well.
PHIL AND TAMSIN (Bristol England, Aug 2020 - 1 week)
We were delighted when Richard and Elisabeth agreed to sit for us and our dog Pippa. We very much enjoyed their company during their stay the night before we left on our holiday, and Pippa immediately took to them both. They were keen to familiarise themselves with her routine and details about the house and local area. We knew she would be in good hands. On our return the house was clean and tidy, and Pippa was a happy dog. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Richard and Elisabeth.
KAREN (Littleworth, Worcester England, Sep 2019 - 1 week 2 days)
Richard & Elisabeth came the night before we went away, they are lovely people and we went away confident that our home and our greyhound Ella would be well cared for, we returned to find a nice tidy house and a happy and healthy greyhound. We would be happy to recommend Richard & Elisabeth for your housesit.
ROSEMARIE (Loughborough England, Mar 2019 - 1 week)
No rating We would like to thank Richard and Elisabeth, who looked after our two Norwegian Forest cats for a week while we were on holiday. They were very reliable, arriving and leaving at the times previously agreed. They left our home clean and tidy and communicated with us while we were away to let us know how the cats were doing.
JENNA (Exeter England, Nov 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Excellent asked all the right questions and the dog instantly liked them. Left the house very tidy. Would highly recommend.
ISLA (Hebden Bridge England, Jul 2018 - 1 week 1 day)
No rating Elisabeth and Richard looked after our black cat Django at our Hove flat while we were away from 15th June - 18th June 2018. Our cat took to them immediately they arrived and was happy and healthy when we arrived home three days later. Elisabeth and Richard were reliable, tidy and lovely and we would thoroughly recommend them as pet/property sitters.
LAURA (Hove England, Jun 2018)
No rating Elisabeth and Andrew looked after everything very well - the house, the plants and - most importantly - the cats. All was clean and tidy when we returned with the towels washed and the bed linen in the washing machine. They are nice - and diligent - people. We are very grateful to them for looking after everything. Thanks.
SALLY (Shipston On Stour England, May 2018 - 4 days)
No rating Elisabeth and Richard were able to come for 2 weeks to look after our lovely old Border Collie, a rescue dog whom we have had for nearly 9 years. We enjoyed their company the evening before we left home, as did our dog, and we knew straight away that he and our house would be in safe hands. They had to leave a few hours before our return, so we had arranged with them beforehand to leave the key with a neighbour. We came back to a very happy dog and a clean and tidy house. Elisabeth and ... MORE
ANN & IAIN (Wellington England, Mar 2018 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Richard and Elisabeth looked after our house and house rabbit for 5 nights January/February 2017. It was our first experience having house sitters but they put us at ease. They arrived the night before as we were leaving early the next day, and had dinner with us whilst discussing the area and our rabbit's normal schedule. Whilst we were away, they kept us up to date by email and even sent us some pictures to ease our minds. Unfortunately our flight was delayed and there was traffic on the way ... MORE
ABBIE (Folkestone England, Jan 2018 - 5 days)
No rating We had Elisabeth and Richard look after our two small dogs for two week. They were a pleasure to meet and instantly felt confident our dogs and house were in safe hands. Richard kept us upto date with emails on how the dogs were and also took delivery of items for us and let us know of their safe arrival. When we returned the house was very clean and tidy and the dogs were in great shape. We can't thank Elisabeth and Richard enough for making our two week holiday stress free by knowing we ... MORE
JOHN (Caldecote England, Jul 2017 - 3 weeks)
No rating Elizabeth and Richard looked after my home and my two dogs for me and I could not have wished for better sitters. My dogs were happy and well looked after. They watered my plants and the house was lovely and clean and tidy. I would highly recommend these two lovely people to do a great job.
LYNNE (Birmingham England, May 2017 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating Thanks Richard and Elizabeth for looking after our home and spoilt pet dog, Daisy May. You did a great job, we will certainly recommend you to friends and family and despite our cold Northampton wet weather I hope you would consider us again.
JACK AND LYNDA. (Gillibrand South England, Mar 2017 - 2 weeks 2 days)
No rating Richard and Elisabeth recently house sat for us and looked after our 2 kitties, Bailey and Barney whilst we went to Scotland. They are both absolutely lovely people, and both the house and cats were very well looked after. The house was lovely and clean when we came home and both cats were happy and content. I would be more than happy to have them back here knowing that my 2 little babies are in good, safe hands. And also more than happy to recommend them for any future house sit :)
CAROLYN (Hampton England, Feb 2017 - 4 days)
No rating Elisabeth and Richard were great with the cats and took good care of the house. Came home to a lovely clean and tidy house. Great service and sitters.
CAROL (Torquay England, Jan 2017 - 1 week 5 days)
No rating Elisabeth and Richard were outstanding house sitters. We could not have wished for better. We liked them immediately and were able to go away and not worry about our precious pets and home. Our cats were lovingly looked after and our home was in perfect order on our return. We highly recommend them . Best wishes Beatrice and family.
BEATRICE (Chorleywood England, Aug 2016 - 1 week 3 days)
No rating My better-late-than-never endorsement! Elisabeth and Richard were great sitters and I would definitely choose them again if I ever go away again! They took lovely care of my cat and went the extra mile to get her new food when she was sick! The house was in great condition too. Thank you so much x
CHARLOTTE (Horsham England, May 2016 - 3 weeks)
No rating It was great to meet Elizabeth and Richard, lovely people who did a great job looking after our 2 spaniels for 3 weeks They are warm and friendly and left the apartment in very good condition. We would recommend them as caring, considerate house sitters.
AILEEN (Stranraer Scotland, Apr 2016 - 1 week 6 days)
No rating Richard and Elisabeth took great care of our cat whilst we were away.
ELAINA (Leatherhead England, Apr 2016 - 2 weeks 1 day)
No rating To whom it may concern We left our large home near Oxford along with 3 precious cats in the care of Richard and Elizabeth for 5 weeks over Christmas and New Year. They proved to be excellent house sitters and coped admirably with unexpected heating problems and a leaking pond. They also kept us up to date with what was going on so that we were able to enjoy our holiday without any worries about the home front. We would unhesitatingly recommend them.
MARILYN GOODWIN (Kidlington England, Dec 2015 - 4 weeks)
No rating Richard and Elisabeth were an utter delight, and we count ourselves exceptionally fortunate to have had them look after house and cats. They kept in regular contact, indulging our need to check how our beloved cats were doing. They were doing splendidly, loved and cosseted by Richard and Elisabeth, and an unexpected need for a visit to the vet (fortunately a minor issue) was dealt with so well - we are very grateful. The house was spotless on our return, the garden had not only been ... MORE

House Security

Safe house!

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