About the Homestay
I am a single parent of 3 children who are now 18yrs, 20yrs & 22yrs old. 2 children still live at home which is approximately 3 miles from the city of Edinburgh. Our house is served by an excellent bus service into town & also has a direct bus service from Edinburgh Airport.
My house is on a direct bus route to Napier University and also Edinburgh University and Kings Buildings (with a short walk).
I live on a direct bus route to The main hospital in Edinburgh (Edinburgh Royal Infirmary) for Medical students which is approximately a 10 min bus journey from the house.
I currently work full time as a welfare officer working with children in school from the age of 5-16yrs. I also work alongside the government and police supporting young people who have criminal charges.

A key will be given on arrival and the expectation is to lock the door on arrival and leaving the house.
Smoking is not allowed.
I stayed three nights and it was very comfortable! The room is lovely and the bed is fine! Lesley was very kind and friendly! The breakfast was delicious and the selection was large (cheese, ham, cornflakes, croissants.…) It was a real pleasure staying at her place!
