Maureen and her family are just lovely people to live with and get to know - I would recommend them to anyone! They helped me so much during my stay and gave me lots of advice and tips. They are so relaxed and really respected my privacy and I knew they were always there if I needed a chat or had any questions. I am actually quite sad to be leaving the Luccock household but I am leaving with very happy memories and I know we will keep in contact. If you're looking for an unforgettable homestay experience then you really can't get better than this!!! Thank you Maureen :)
Maureen is a fabulous host and I had a lovely stay with her family in Surrey. She's welcoming, generous and great company. The room was comfortable. There's a large shopping centre only about 10min walk away. Was exactly what I was looking for!
