About the Homestay
We have just finished decorating and furnishing our spare room ready for a student or professional lodger. We have just bought brand new IKEA furniture including double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and desk (desk is not new) the desk can also go if you want more space or if you would like to buy a smaller one.
This is a bright quiet room at the back of our house overlooking ours and neighboring gardens. We are a family of 3 (soon to be 4) We bought the house at the end of last year an have refurbished most of it already into a warm cosy house with all the modern features you could ask for. High Speed internet as well as all bills are provided in the rent, you have access to the whole house provided we are not using a room already
We are looking for a single female either studying or working, provided you are comfortable with cute children and a very quiet cat? as such we are searching for a quiet respectful girl/woman ( a sense of humor is a plus) to share our home and become part of the family.
We will consider a short stay . We are looking to rent the room for the next two years so this can be a solid base for someone looking to save money or get some independence.
I cant always accept calls so email or text is preferred initially

About the Area
