I'm looking for housesitter to look after my two cats who enjoy human company and water some indoor plants. Bishops Waltham is a quaint market town with various shops (including a Sainsburys Local), pubs, restaurants and a ruined palace and has buses going to Winchester, Southampton and Fareham. Nearest train station is a drive of 7 minutes. Also lots of local footpaths to neighbouring villages. The cats are on different diets and medication so need to be kept an eye on while feeding to make sure they don't eat each other’s! The house has dishwasher, good wifi, smart TV, central heating and the usual modcons. Small garden with outdoor furniture and BBQ. Shed for bike storage. No gardening required.

“ Wonderful! ”

My house/pet sit at Liz McLaren’s home in Bishops Waltham (UK) was wonderful - in the truest sense of the word - from beginning to end.

Liz kindly picked me up at the bus station (the trains were on strike on the  day I arrived) and took me to the train station at the end of my 2-week stay.

She has a lovely home and garden, only a 10-minute walk to the High Street where every amenity was easily available, including a very nice pub and fish ‘n chips shop.  There was also excellent bus service from Bishops Waltham to and fro Winchester which I very much enjoyed using.

Last, but not least, the kitties (DJ and Missy) were a veritable delight to care for, to get to know and to become friends with.

Liz thoughtfully left me instructions for every aspect of the running of her home, including contacting the neighbors in the event I needed help, which I did as I was uncertain how to turn on the oven!  

Thanks to Liz’s thoughtfulness, everything went like clockwork!

As I started at the beginning, a wonderful, memorable house/pet sit!

Thank you, Liz!

Missy just would NOT go out in the rain, and DJ just wanted to eat all the time!  Both were loving and slept on my bed.  It's a pretty, historic village and just a short way from Winchester which is full of interest.  Communication was easy, and the neighbours were friendly!  A great sit, thanks.
