House Rules

Please ask me if there is anything you are unsure of, and no smoking only in the garden. All the flooring is laminated wood so it is very easy to keep clean, so no need to take shoes off.
Make sure the door is locked when leaving the house as the dog could run out and get killed.

Smoking is allowed outdoors only.

    Thank you Patricia for making me welcome in your lovely home. You were both so kind to me while I stayed with you. My bedroom was perfect and having the mini fridge and kettle on my room was a great idea. Thank you again

I would like to thank you for your great hospitality, and I will definitely come back and recommend your place!

    Pat and Bob were friendly, easy-going and helpful. Their home is very well-kept and clean. It was located in a road which was very quiet but a 10 minute walk from shops and other amenities. I would definitely recommend this homestay to others.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
