Testimonials

Passing the baton

Liz and Vince drove all the way from Ireland to hold the fort for us for two weeks in October 2022, despite Liz nursing a wounded knee. We were thankful that they rose to the challenge and made sure our guests felt welcomed, something that's very important to us. Vince was up to any challenge due to his farming and mechanical experience and we came back to a mended gate post, plus they found their way to our poly tunnel and rescued some wilting tomato and strawberry plants .Liz left us a warming pie and a box of chocolates, plus all was clean and tidy, making for a welcoming home-coming. Thank you Liz and Vince, we wish you both every blessing.

Very attentive house sitters

Vince and Elizabeth took very good care of our house and cat. We also entrusted them with our car, and both house and car were returned in immaculate condition. They even prepared a meal for us for our return. Modjo, our cat, seems to have been positively pampered during their stay, as the many photographs sent during their stay bear witness. Vince is an excellent handyman, and even took on some DIY, and we now have a homemade tool rack in the garage and a barn door that no longer scratches the floor when opened. We are very grateful for their care and attention... as is Modjo!

Fantastic choice for looking after our cat Tilly

We were very fortunate to have Liz and Vince come and look after Tilly for a week while we were away. From the very beginning communication was easy, we were put at ease by their good nature and obvious experience in looking after pets. During our trip we were given regular updates and the odd picture which really put our minds at ease. When we returned the house was immaculate, Tilly was happy and they had also left some Easter gifts for our young children, plus some food in the fridge for us to eat after our long journey. I couldn't recommend Liz and Vince highly enough, we hope they will be able to look after Tilly for any holidays we take in the future.
