Testimonials

Thank you x

Linda and Brian gave us peace of mind during our holiday. From our initial contact through to the end of the housesit they were attentive, organised, polite and friendly. Our main concern was Zinzin our elderly cat, but it seemed she was in good hands and well cared for, we are grateful. Our home was respected and left tidy on their departure. The winter weather of below freezing temps, snow and ice made life a little tricky with access to our property, but we are pleased to hear they enjoyed the area once out and about. Thank you for us all.

Cats and Cottage sitting!

Dear Brian, Dear Linda, Thank you so much for taking such good care of my little cottage and my gang of 3 cats. You were so accommodating to co-ordinate your travel dates with my holidays which was very much appreciated. It was a great relief to leave my home and animals in such caring hands! I hope to welcome you back some day! Best wishes, Veronika - Plum Cottage

A wonderful house sitting couple

Linda and Bryan did a wonderful job of looking after our property, cat and hens while we were away on business for a week. Everything was in perfect order when we arrived home and Linda had prepared a delicious curry for us on our return. The house was shipshape. cat happy and hens obviously well looked after. Would recommend Linda and Bryan as trustworthy, capable and very pleasant house sitters.
