Two dogs, two cats and a lovely garden in the beautiful West Sussex Village of Balcombe amongst the lovely rolling hills of the English countryside.

What else could a house sitter need?  Oh yes, a fabulous supply of fresh courgettes, beans, spinach, lettuce and other yummy vegetables direct from the private garden, a nice village pub, of course, and a place with a quiet spacious conservatory ideal for working without distraction – (Well mostly quiet, apart from Rusty the mad Border Collie incessantly wanting to play ?)

Max and Nicola, my wonderful hosts, had gone to great lengths to ensure a very warm welcome.

A delicious meal prepared with fresh veggies direct from the garden, together with very tasty Maroccan chicken made for a fabulously inviting welcome supper.

To ensure I also had sufficient sustenance to endure Rusty’s energetic and unending demands with his ball (and any other object he feel would make for a great game of fetch)  the pantry was also generously stocked with a lovely selection of deliscious gourmet delights to enjoy during my stay.

 Thank you so much Ron and Nicola !!

Rusty , the Ginger Nut .. Crazy in a very fun and loving way !

Here’s What The Owners Said:


I felt completely relaxed with Anthony from our initial conversation and was very happy for him to come and look after our gang and our house and garden.

Nothing was too much trouble for Anthony!

I think the house was cleaner and tidier on our return than when we left it! Despite the drought the garden was flourishing when we got back.

We got daily beautiful photos of the dogs on their walks, short messages to let me know the cats were fine

Anthony is a real 5 STAR pet and house sitter!
