Home Sweet Home Sitting

a great alternative to kennels

Your pets stay relaxed in their own environment and routine, plus your house is well looked after.


My name’s Steph, I’m a web designer, house sitter and tea lover. I own and run a web design company, so I’m lucky enough to combine working from home with my house sitting.

my spaniels

Bandit and Pickle have been with me for the past and years respectively; with homeowners permission they join me while I house sit.

3 Working Springers, 1 Cat, Chickens

“Stephanie has been looking after our house and menagerie on regular occasions for the last couple of years. She always does her best to fit in with our needs, sometimes at very short notice and her visits can be anything from a couple of days to a couple of weeks.

She takes on any challenge with enthusiasm - from nursing a sick chicken to successfully managing the mating of a breeding bitch who came in heat at a rather inconvenient time - and we now have puppies to prove it! I can therefore sincerely recommend Stephanie's housesitting services to anyone who needs a friendly, thoughtful and reliable person to take care of their premises and animals for whatever length of absence.”

12 Working Cockers, 1 Labrador

“Steph is a remarkable young woman who is utterly reliable and competent at whatever challenge we give her! Steph is the key to a stress free holiday. This year we left her in charge of the house, garden and our TEN Working cocker spaniels plus a litter of puppies. We always come back to a blooming garden, happy dogs and a house cleaner than when we left!”

2 Lurchers

“We have two rescue Lurchers who both experienced traumatic beginnings to their lives, but after approximately two years, they have finally learned how to play, trust and get the very best out of their lives.

Our dilemma was the fragility of their new found living; to put them in a kennel, or with someone who does not understand their past left us with no choice other than to abandon extended trips away without them. That was until we found Steph! ...and what a bonus, our home is equally and lovingly cared for in our absences.”

Angela & Richard

1 Labrador, 1 Border Terrier

“Stephanie has looked after our two dogs on a number of occasions during the last two years, and has proved to be not only reliable and responsible, but she is naturally gifted with animals, and has a special relationship with dogs in particular.

Daisy and Jessie are always very pleased to see her and look forward to her visits and we can go away with an easy mind, knowing they will be happy and well looked after.”
