We are both teachers and, having travelled widely, we enjoy being able to welcome students and visitors to share our home.

J'ai passé un excellent séjour chez Neil et Pauline, ces hôtes sont très accueillants et chaleureux, la maison est tout confort, le petit-déjeuner et le dîner sont conviviaux et de très bonne qualité.
Par ailleurs, Neil m'a invité à jouer au golf, à partager un fish and chips et il m'a invité à son pub préféré.
Je recommande vivement cet hôte!!

Best host family EVER. Amazing food and facilities/room. Never had such a holiday full of love and joy ;) I'm definitely coming back!
We are couple stayed there for short-term. We got the double room with the lake view and the room was pretty large. Friendly people, peaceful and clean environment, perfectly furnished. Everything went well according to the rules. Just couldn't fully cook and we missed house key a bit. I can definitely recommend.
