House Sitting in Cardiff Wales
We have now been house sitting for a few years and have had some wonderful experiences. House sitting enables us to explore new places like a local, with no accommodation costs and enjoy the company of some furry friends.
We belong to a house sitting community called TrustedHousesitters.com who have proved to be invaluable in putting us in touch with relevant home owners.
One of our favourite house sits is with Lip and Shadow in Cardiff and we have now house sat for them 7 times. Lip is a Lurcher and Shadow is a Greyhound, both dogs have lots of energy and thoroughly enjoy being taken for long walks. They are very affectionate, and love lots of snuggle’s and fuss. We have got to know them really well now and it’s lovely seeing their happy reactions when we return!
What does Cardiff have to offer?
House sitting in Cardiff has been a wonderful experience and a great city to explore. Our location couldn’t be any better right between the bay and the city centre. A 5 minute walk towards Cardiff Bay is the Red Dragon centre this houses, multiple bars and restaurants, a cinema, bowling alley and Casino.
A further 5 minute walk and you in the centre of Cardiff bay with the very impressive Millennium Centre.
Walk in the other direction for 10 minutes and you are in the Cardiff city centre and at the train station.
Cardiff has a great live music scene, we always make sure we visit the Brewhouse in the Brewery Quarter. They showcase some very talented musicians and their happy hours last from 5pm – 9pm on a Friday! For all the sports fans there are plenty of TV’s showing a variety of games.
Cardiff is a great place to visit, and we thoroughly recommend it. It is only an hour away from our home city of Gloucester. We have since been back in our Campervan and stayed on a great camp site in the city centre, for more information about camping in Cardiff click here.
Here are a selection of the References from Lip and Shadow’s owner
‘Carole and Paul have just looked after our dogs fish and home as on previous occasions everything was perfect.
They are able to cope with any unforeseen issues and nothing is too much trouble for them.’
‘This is the third time Carole and Paul have looked after our dogs fish and home.
They really are excellent sitters and 100% reliable nothing is to much trouble for them out pets are always very well cared for and our house far tidier than it was when we left it.
I would be happy to provide more information to anyone considering asking Carole and Paul to sit for them.’
‘Carole & Paul have again been wonderful house sitters they gave excellent care to my two very demanding dogs and numerous fish.
They always ensure every is done to an excellent standard.
Very highly recommended.’
‘Carole and Paul were excellent house sitters I have two very demanding dogs a young lurched and a very active whippet. The day before Carole and Paul arrived I had to take my lurched to the vets he ended up needing daily medication and dressings. Carole and Paul sorted this with no problem. Also whilst we were away the filter on my fish tank broke again they sorted this with no problem. It’s wonderful to go away and not have to worry I cannot recommend Carole and Paul enough I have already asked them to come back. If you want excellent sitters then Carole and Paul are wonderful.’
