We're a semi-retired couple with grown up children and looking to explore the country. We've had a wealth of experience house sitting, along with a variety of pets including dogs, cats, chickens, rabbits fish and birds. We're both physically active, enjoying cycling, walking and camping, as well as practical and hands-on when needs must.

Richard and Julia looked after Echo and Indy, the hens and the home in every way you could wish for. We got to know each other a wee bit, sharing a couple of evenings and meals. Communication was great, including lots of photos of the creatures. A big thank you for all their care.
BECS AND TOM (Dingwall Scotland, Dec 2023 - 2 weeks 4 nights)
Julia and Richard were the perfect house sitters! Speedy communication made setting up the house sit easy; they sent regular messages and photos whilst I was away confirming that all was well and that Tom was a very happy cat, and left the house immaculate. You couldn't ask for more. Thank you Richard and Julia. Tom misses you too :)

Safe house!

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