Places to Visit

    • Visiting dog friendly cafes in Hove

      Before we began our full time house sitting lifestyle, we spent a year renting a flat in the centre of Brighton. Back then, Chris was spending his weekdays working at a desk 9-5 as a web developer, while I worked on my Etsy shop in our conservatory-turned-studio at home. We spent our weekends recovering from […]

    • Riding the fastest zip line in the world – Velocity 2 at Penrhyn Quarry, Wales

      Do you ever book tickets for something that seems so far away that you almost don’t think it will ever happen? That was us back in March 2020 when we took advantage of a 2 for 1 offer from Zip World, and snapped up our tickets. Our full time house sitting lifestyle was temporarily on […]

    • Dog walking in Holkham and Wells, Norfolk

    • 48 hours in the Cotswolds

With no house or pet responsibilities, we go all-in on seeing as much of a new place as we can and enjoying some time just the two of us. The Cotswolds is one of those places that has absolutely boomed in popularity in […]

    • Hiking the horseshoe ridge route to Pen y Fan

      In late June we started a housesit deep in the Welsh countryside, not too far from the Brecon Beacons. We had two ponies, four ducks and five sheep in our care, all of whom only required feeding early in the morning and late in the evening. Our homeowner encouraged us to get out and explore […]

    • Our top places to visit in Dartmoor

      Dartmoor is one of our favourite areas of England. Having grown up in a busy town before moving to city life in London, then spending a year in Brighton before we began full time housesitting, it’s safe to say that we now prefer the slower pace of life that comes with smaller towns and villages.
