We’re Rich Stephenson and John Harbutt, owners of the Cotswold Caretaker.
Based near Cheltenham, in the very heart of the Cotswolds, the Cotswold Caretaker is a family-run business based on a solid foundation of skill, initiative and over 30 years of experience.
We established the Cotswold Caretaker to address a pressing need for exceptional, tailored property care and maintenance for second home owners.
As well as providing bespoke, subscription-based care and maintenance for your Cotswold property, we handle individual repairs and home improvement projects – no matter how large or ambitious.
With our hand-picked team of local trades – from electricians and plumbers to roofers and landscapers – we’re the one number you need when it comes to your second property.
Our team are highly trained to deal with even the most exclusive and sought-after properties with the utmost care and discretion. They’re the people we would trust to carry out work on our own homes.
So, whether you need a trusted keyholder to perform regular site visits and to carry out the routine tasks that make a house a home, or you’re planning the installation of a brand new bathroom or kitchen, we can help.
The Cotswold Caretaker may not be cheap but they’re excellent value. My wife and I own a three-storey townhouse in the centre of Cheltenham. We tend to leave it in chaos (we have three young children) but it’s always in immaculate condition when we return for our next visit. Personal touches such as home-cooked lasagne and wine in the fridge add to the welcome home, and they’ve even carried out a complete redecoration. Highly recommended.
I highly recommend the Cotswold Caretaker. We nearly sold our second home after vandals broke in, leaving the rear entrance open for months. We’re spending more time at the property now but it’s still nice to know it’ll be clean (and there will be no nasty surprises!) every time we visit – even if we leave it in a bit of a mess before rushing back to the airport. Thanks Rich and team!
I would just like to thank The Cotswold Caretakers for looking after our special little house for us over the last year or so, it’s made owning it a real joy, again thank you, oh and Rich you are a star.
It takes a lot to surprise me, but I wasn’t expecting the wood burner to be lit and wine in the fridge! Can you start thinking about the kitchen remodelling for this summer please?
