House sitting in Cheltenham with Jasmine and Puddles

We were asked to spend two weeks house sitting in Cheltenham looking after Puddles and Jasmine.

The Pets

Puddles and Jasmine

During our house sitting in Cheltenham, we looked after 2 lovely dogs called Puddles and Jasmine. Puddles is a black labrador and Jasmine is a border collie. Both had lovely personalities, who were a pleasure to look after.

They enjoyed their walks and loved playing with their ball, and were both also partial to a lot of fuss! They were great company.

The property

The property was actually a bungalow. This was the first time we had experienced house sitting in a bungalow, it was great not having stairs to climb, we really liked it. I’m quite tempted to buy a Bungalow if we ever move house actually. They’re great! We had a problem one evening with the loss of power, which was resolved easily, but this reinforced the importance of our house sitting checklist to ensure you know the property well before the owners leave, should any issues arise. The other thing we discovered was the wonder of having a dual heated mattress cover, the weather was pretty chilly and getting into a warm bed was heaven. We loved it so much we went shopping on our way home and bought one!

The location

Cheltenham is only 9 miles from our home town of Gloucester, it is a great town and we had a great time exploring a parts that we were not familiar with. We used the local buses to get about which was simple and one bonus of working for the NHS, all journeys on stagecoach buses were Ā£1!

Reference from Puddles and Jasmine’s owners

Carole and Paul looked after our house and 2 dogs for 2 weeks. We have a very playful collie and a softy of a lab who suffers from arthritis both are 10 years old. This is the first time we have used housesitters and could not be happier !!

Despite a problem with our washing machine and our uncertainty of leaving our dogs with strangers, Carole and Paul did an amazing job and rose above our expectations.

We would thoroughly recommend anyone to use Carole and Paul to look after their home and pets. Our 2 dogs were totally relaxed when we arrived home and the house was immaculate šŸ™‚

We are so VERY VERY grateful to have found such a lovely trustworthy couple and we will use them again and again.

  1. Hi mates, nice post and fastidious urging commented here, I am genuinely enjoying by these.

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Kudos!

    • Thanks for your kind words!

      We are pretty new to blogging too and just finding our way, your right it is very confusing to start with! The advice that we found was to go for a paid option so you have ownership from the start, it is not expensive, we opted to go with Go Daddy and have the managed wordpress option, we have found them very helpful because of the online chat you can have. We are really enjoying blogging so go for it!

  3. What’s up colleagues, its impressive article about educationand entirely defined, keep
    it up all the time.

  4. Hey there, You have done a great job. Iā€™ll certainly dig it and personally suggest to
    my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  5. Thanks for sharing article, i really like it.
