House / Farm Sitting

hammond freddieHome comforts

Having a pet sitter stay in your home or farm while you’re away is an ideal alternative to putting your beloved pets in kennels, catteries or relying on neighbours or family members to make daily visits to tend to your menagerie of animals. Furthermore, your house pets get to stay in their own home with all their familiar smells and surroundings, continuing to enjoy their home luxuries without even realising you’ve gone away plus your dogs and cats still get a warm body to sleep up next to at night (if they’re allowed on the bed, of course!).

Experienced Sitters

All our sitters are experienced with all sorts of farm animals – pigs, goats, chickens, ducks, sheep, horses, geese, peacocks, alpacas, llamas, donkeys, cattle – so you can feel assured that your allocated carer has the relevant experience and knowledge required to take good care of them while you’re away.

Home Security

As an added benefit to having your animals looked after, we can provide security coverage of your home – which we can offer you, even if you don’t have any animals! This presence will not only deter vandals and burglars but also keep your home aired and lived in. We also hold full insurance for house sitting including smallholdings and farms so it doesn’t matter how many or what sort of animals you own.

Build Your Own Bespoke Care Package

There are two levels of homestay packages available – Gold or Platinum. Please contact us for a quote which will be based on a daily rate, not on the amount of animals you have. There is also a one off mileage charge at 40p/mile from the sitters home to yours and back again. We also ask if you could leave a little welcome basic food parcel for your sitter which includes of milk and bread so they can make ‘tea and toast’ when they first arrive but other than that, they will bring their own food with them so there’s no hidden charges.

  • The Gold Standard means that the carer will not be gone for more than three/four hours at any one time

  • The Platinum Standard is where the carer ensures that they stay in your home for the full duration of the stay with the exception of quick visits to the local shop to top up basic provisions.

Please note that Easter, Christmas and New Year holidays are all chargeable at double time rates.
