We have been welcoming foreign students to our home for 5 years. All the family are involved in hosting the students when they are at home collecting them from the airport,helping prepare the meals, accompanying them on outings,  playing tennis and kayaking with them in the sunshine or board and card games in the evening. Each year many of our guests are returning for the second or third time or have been recommended by friends who have visited us previously.



You are guaranteed a warm welcome to our home totally immersed in English language and culture in beautiful surroundings with friendly animals, fresh food from the garden and lots of opportunities to enjoy a wonderful stay.  Read the testimonials to see what previous guests have to say.
