For Approx 4 weeks | Short Medium Term

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 1 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.

Chicken care is easy, takes about 15 minutes per day and no experience is required.


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 we have local contacts who can look after the chickens for a few days if necessary.  Our flight dates are 30th June to 28 July.  Our son may also come look after the house for a week or more to escape London, so we can be a bit flexible on your dates if necessary.

We will also be looking later in the year for sitters for a second period 12th September to 13th October.

Re Covid you will have a double bedroom and bathroom that will not be touched for several days before your arrival.  We should be fully vaccinated by June hopefully anyway.

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