Caring and Dependable Animal Lovers

57, Retired

60, Retired

Hi there,

We are Gaynor and Andy, a retired couple of animal lovers from Lancashire.

We have loved and cared for our own dogs and also those of our friends and family over many years. You simply can't put a price on the joy they bring and what a HUGE part of our lives they are. So we understand how hard it is to leave them and the importance of knowing that they will be safe, secure and happy staying in their own environment. We'd make sure they have lots of fun, walks and cuddles while you're away and treat your home as if it were our own.

Married for 34 years, we enjoy being outdoors-lots of walking, cycling and are keen skiers too. Both non smokers, we have our own car and hold full clean driving licences.

We appreciate that it's a massive decision, leaving your home and beloved pets in the care of others. We want you to be able to fully relax while you are away and you can rest assured that they will both be in the safest of hands with us.

Thank you for taking the time to read our profile, we really do hope to hear from you.

We've used house sitters a lot and have always had great people to stay, but Gaynor and Andy surpassed our expectations! What a lovely couple. It was just so obvious that they were true dog-lovers. They spent their first 30 mins on arrival on their hands and knees just cuddling our boys. Every day we received a beautiful montage of photos of all 3 boys having fun, chill-axing, being cuddled. Their communication was amazing - which is so reassuring when you're away. The house was spotless on ... MORE

This was the first time that we have had house sitters and it was a very positive experience. We were very lucky that Gaynor and Andy responded to our advert as they are very experienced house sitters and guided us through the best approaches to everything. The communication with them was first class as was their care for our home and our two cats. We are fairly sure that the cats were happier with them here than with us. It certainly looked it in the photos we were sent. Overall this is an ... MORE

We could not have asked for a better couple to house sit than Gaynor and Andy. They clearly love animals and our pets loved them. We received regular updates and photos of Barnsley and when he became poorly they let us know immediately and organised a trip to our vet. I hope they will agree to house sit again for us in the future. We would know our house and pets would be in good hands.

Superb. From the moment they appeared at the door and were welcomed by our dogs they were “ family “. What a lovely couple. Reliable, turned up on time, did what they said they would do and the few jobs we ask of them. The house was spotless when they left, beds made, towels washed and dried, kitchen cleaned. They enjoyed some of our books and we enjoyed talking with them about them on our return. All in all a perfect visit. We highly recommend Andy and Gaynor, I think they are ... MORE

The whole experience with Gaynor and Andy was just perfect from start to finish. First rate communication, lovely people, came home to happy pets and an immaculate house (they even cleaned the fridge, much to my shame!). Highly recommended

Oh my goodness! Gaynor and Andy were just the best Housesitters. Could not have asked for better. They arrived with toys for our cats, they communicated frequently with photos and updates and wow left our house slick and span. Thank you both so much. Can't wait to have you back!

We feel blessed to have found Gaynor and Andy - it took all the worry out of leaving the house and meant we felt completely relaxed from the moment our weekend started. Communication with Gaynor was very straightforward - she was friendly and professional and very helpful given that we were first timers. Our house has been beautifully cared for and it was lovely to hear how quickly Gaynor had got to know our chickens and had really taken time with them. I hope Gaynor and Andy enjoyed their ... MORE

Gaynor and Andy were fantastic housesitters! The communication was excellent, we met the day before the sitting started which was great to talk through the dogs and the home. We came back to an even cleaner house than when we left, and the dogs were just in fantastic form - very obviously had lots of lovely walks. Highly recommend Gaynor and Andy - we so hope they will be back to visit our home in Bath again soon!

Wow! What can I say? Andy & G we're an absolute delight!! A pleasure to deal with, a pleasure to have in my home and a lovely, dependable, calm and caring couple. My boys Skudge & Eddie absolutely adored them. The dogs were walked for ours on end and cleaned to sparkling. I honestly think they love Andy & G more than us! Can't wait to have them back. Miss them already. They took in all our Christmas parcels too ❤️

This was our first time of using House sitters and wow....what a find! From the first conversation with Gaynor I knew that this was right and and we could enjoy our trip with full confidence. Gaynor and Andy are such a wonderful couple, I truly feel I have known them forever as we were all so at ease. Maddie was given such loving care and we received lots of updates on their daily activities it was a pleasure to see the joy shared. The House was beautiful on our return and I teased saying ... MORE

Well, I couldn't have been luckier than to find Gaynor and her husband, Andy, as my first house sitters! What a lovely, lovely couple - kind, caring, open, helpful and just all round good humans! The care they gave my Frenchie, Bijou, was equal to the care they gave to my home - they left my house absolutely spotless!! Bijou insisted last night after I got home on sleeping on the sofa where Gayna last sat - clearly missing her. I had lots of communication and pics of Bijou while I was ... MORE
