The purrrrfect sitters

60, Retired photographer

61, Former Fire fighter


My name is Beverley and I am retired from my photography business after 32 years. I love to house sit, it's so much better if your lovely cat doesn't have to go into a cattery, they can stay in their home environment and both you and they are stress free after your holiday. We love our own home and have seen a lot of the world we feel it's time to travel the UK which is why we choose to house sit, it's a win win for all of us!

My husband David was a fireman for a number of years and then a photographer alongside me. He is very practical and will make sure everything is always done well.

We have full police check available to view together with passports / driving licences to put your mind at rest.

We have three daughters who all have careers and homes of their own leaving us to travel which we love to do.

We have lived in many houses carrying out renovations, extensions and even building a 5 bed detached ourselves which was quite an experience. So we are very practical and feel we can act quickly if something needs to to done while you are away.

Pets have been a big part of our life too and over the years we have had family pets including Luther our Great Dane and Naz our Boxer together with our cat Benny who came from a local cat charity and Billy who we met at a local dogs home ! We also had a Bengal cat called Ziggy and a British short hair called Captain Pugwash. We do not have any pets of my own now as we love to travel and after our boxer died felt to upset to take on another dog.

We live a quiet life in Staffordshire with 8 grandchildren, did I say quiet? .... We love to explore the UK, meet people, read lots of books, take part in trivia quizzes, love art, gardens, history, countryside, and writing. I am currently trying to write a novel but it is proving harder than I thought

We are happy to take messages and keep in touch with you if you wish and will make sure your home is kept clean and tidy while you are away.

We are both non smokers and we are both vegetarian, We are mature, reliable, dependable, trustworthy, safety conscious and would love to look after your home.

PLEASE NOTE : we need a fully working TV and internet

Happy to chat over the phone with you at any time

Best wishes Beverley and David

Beverley and David were outstanding housesitters. They even made the extra effort to come a night early to meet us so we could give them a thorough briefing about our house and our cats. They were both lovely, interesting people, they kept in touch throughout, left the house looking immaculate and even left us a little gift to come home to. I have no hesitation in recommending them, especially to anyone who's not used housesitters before and is nervous about what to expect. Beverley and ... MORE

Beverley and David were great. They looked after our house brilliantly and we returned home to find everything clean and tidy. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Thank you Peter and Anne. You have a lovely home; we were very happy to look after it for you. A very special area of England. A privilege to sit in your garden cultivated by you over many years. Just beautiful x x
Beverley and David looked after our cats and house very well. Communication was excellent and they’re lovely people. Thank you
JENNIFER (Cleadon, Sunderland England, Apr 2023 - 3 days)
Beverley and David were brilliant house sitters. Their responses to our communications were quick and effective. We chatted over the phone beforehand to arrange everything to ensure that we would both be happy with our arrangements. They made a special effort to leave very early so that they could meet us at our house before we had to leave, but were sabotaged by the traffic on the M6. They left the house spotless, and our cat, Elton, was really calm and relaxed when we got back. He even ... MORE

Beverley and David were wonderful housesitters. They took the trouble to arrive before I left so that we could meet and I could show them around, they took wonderful care of the house and my rather aloof cat, and even left a welcome home present. They also coped beautifully with a last minute key hitch, they are clearly very capable people, and I won't hesitate to ask them to sit again!
ISABEL (South West London England, Apr 2022 - 1 week 1 day)
Beverley and David came to look after our house and four cats for 8 nights in September. They are the loveliest couple and are so friendly and easy to get on with. They came to stay the night before we left to give us a chance to meet them and introduce them to the cats. We spent the whole evening chatting and again the next morning. They looked after the cats perfectly and the house was spotless when we got back (they had even stripped the bed and washed all the bedding!). They also ... MORE
GWEN (Dunmow England, Sep 2021 - 8 nights)
Beverley and David were wonderful house sitters. They took great care of our slightly high maintenance burmese cat, goldfish and our home. They were easy to communicate with both before and during the sit and accommodated our very early departure by arriving first thing in the morning for a handover. I would certainly recommend them both as pet and house sitters and would have them again.
JULIE (Farnham , Aug 2021 - 6 days)
Whilst this couple did not actually sit, this is somewhat of a speculative review. Our holiday was cancelled because of you-know-what, but they kept the date options open to help us out as we kept changing our minds. From what they said and from other reviews, we felt confident that they would be 5 star sitters. Let's hope 2022 will allow us to invite them again.
GRAHAM (Braintree England, Jul 2021 - 7 days)
Beverly and David were our first experience of house sitters. They are great couple and took very good care of our elderly cat Lily, our house and garden, including feeding our visiting hedgehogs and local peacocks! They communicated with us whilst we were away and we were reassured that Lily had accepted them .The house was immaculate when we returned and Lily was indifferent to us - I think she missed them! We would not hesitate to recommend them and hope they will visit us again in the ... MORE

Despite this House snd pet sit being a bit precarious (due to current Covid restrictions and change in arrangements) Beverley and Dave were very patient snd understanding. Communication was amicable throughout. I look forward to having them for a house and pet sit sometime soon when circumstances are better.

Beverly was a fantastic sitter for the four days we were away and I felt very happy leaving Smokey with her. She communicated well prior to and during the sit and left the house lovely and tidy. I would highly recommend her
JOANNE (Poole England, May 2021 - 4 nights)
Great housesitters. I can highly recommend Beverly and David to anyone looking for a house sitter, they looked after our house, garden and cat very well, we had no concerns at all.
KATHERINE (Hereford England, May 2021 - 7 nights)
Beverley is reliable and trustworthy, leaving the house beautifully clean and tidy and a happy cat!
