From: Jun 25,21  
To:      Jul 29,21
Days:  35, Short Medium Term Approx 4 weeks

Due to late cancellation relisting for 25/6 to 28/7, or a part thereof.  Family have offered some cover if we cannot find anybody at short notice.

We are Steve & Annie and are looking for a couple (ideally) to provide cat, chicken and house care whilst we are away for a month in Greece.


Zeus is a 18 month year old Bombay-Persian.  He has daytime access trough a timed flap to the garden and outside.  He is big and healthy.  Friendly and will sometime sit on your lap, but often nearby when he is in.

Chickens: 4 egg lying hens with light sensitive door for open/closing so just need 5-10 mins attention per day


The original part of our 4 bedroom house is part of a 16th century farmhouse.  We have a large garden with a pond and orchard area.  Mostly oversight and little maintenance required during the sit.  There is a robot mower and auto watering system to monitor.

We have bikes you can use but the village is 6 miles from the centre of York and 3 miles from the nearest shops so you will probably want a car.  There is also an indoor gym in converted stables in the garden

The Sit:

We have lots of experience of house swaps and have house sat ourselves in the past.  This is the 3rd time finding a sitter on this site.

Ideally we are looking for somebody for the full period but given the short notice would welcome any offer that takes stress off family who are offering to help.

Re Covid you will have a double bedroom and bathroom that will not be touched for several days before your arrival.  We are now fully vaccinated as of mid May anyway.

References:  we can provide reference from a previous sit too on request.
