House Sitting & Pet Sitting

House Sitting London

When you go away life back at home doesn’t stop. That’s why we offer a premium house sitting and pet sitting service from our trusted Artisan Aunties and Uncles in London.

Having your house lie empty and your beloved pet left behind can cause you understandable anxiety. We want you to rest easy knowing that your home and/or pets are being well looked after by a hand-picked, trusted sitter.

Homeowners have very high expectations of house sitters – we therefore have high standards of our Aunties and Uncles. We only leave your home and pets with people you can really rely on. We understand this is key and carefully select our Aunties and Uncles to match this expectation.

We want you to relax when you’re away, comforted in the knowledge that you’ll return to a secure, clean house, and happy pets. With Artisan Aunties that’s a guarantee you can trust.
