The Location


This beautiful home and estate is set amongst the most stunning 100 botanical garden and farming land, in Shropshire, United Kingdom.

Shropshire is a spectacular county of rolling hills and rich farmland set in the West Midlands of England, bordering Powys and Wrexham in Wales to the west and north-west, Cheshire to the north, Staffordshire to the east, Worcestershire to the south-east and Herefordshire to the south.

Here’s what the owners had to say about their experience:

When I was looking for a house sitter I read one of Anthony's reviews and it said that if you had an opportunity to have Anthony house sit for you - do not hesitate!

I cannot reiterate that more strongly - he was fantastic!

Although I have had house sitters in the past , this was my first experience of trusted house sitters and it was very successful.

The dogs were so happy with him and he took them for long walks.

One of them had broken her paw and her leg was in plaster and he took her to the vet and gave me updates on her progress.

He brushed them and gave them a bath and when I arrived back they sat at his feet and clearly adored him.

He also looked after my two horses and made sure they had everything they needed.

During his stay the ceiling in one of the rooms was leaking and he contacted the plumber and made sure that the leaks were mended before we came back.

There was trouble with the internet and he made sure this was fixed. He kept us informed at all times but I always felt he was in the control of the situation and there was no need for me to worry.

When we returned , we came back to an immaculate house. He had mowed the lawn, washed the car he had used, in and out, watered the plants and house was filled with flowers.He also made a wonderful video of the garden.

We were lucky enough to have him stay on for a couple of days which gave us an opportunity to get to know him better.

I cannot recommend Anthony highly enough and I would love to have him back in the future.
