It is a while since we posted any of the lovely feedback we continue to receive and so forgive the trumpeting but what a lovely email to receive on a Monday morning.


Dear Jackie,

We have just returned from a few days away and were lucky enough to have G and P housesitting for us, as you know. This is just to say that they were fantastic and we would very much like to book them, please, for our trip next June/ July. It should be somewhere around about 20th June to about 6th July: if it is possible for G and P to ‘pencil us in’, we’d be very grateful indeed, and we will confirm the details as soon as we have them.

We are so grateful to G and P for doing a really wonderful job this weekend. The house was immaculate on our return, with bird feeders topped up, plants watered and all the animals well and happy. They were kind enough not to mind our grown-up daughter being at home for some of their stay and she has nothing but praise for them and everything they did for us. We’d love to book them again as we make further plans for next year – of course, you will be the first to know!

Very many thanks,


Most of our work comes from recommendation and we are very booked up and that probably speaks volumes!! walking dog
