About the Homestay
Our family lives in Winton, a town near the university which is 1 1/2 miles from the centre of Bournemouth. We live with our lovely daughter Ela, who is 4. Our home is a 2 minute walk from the town of Winton, which has some lovely shops, cafes & restaurants, and a 25 minute walk into Bournemouth town centre; buses also go to Bournemouth every 10 minutes.
There are 4 bedrooms in total with a large kitchen with a separate dining area & conservatory. There is a nice sized garden. We have 1 twin room and one single room available, with furniture & comfortable beds! They are both good size. Your bedroom is nicely furnished and you are welcome to the wi-fi at all times.
As my husband and I run an independent café in Winton, you can be sure to receive a warm welcome from us and you are welcome to relax not just in our home, but in the café too :). I am also a language teacher and can offer private English lessons for £20 per hour if you want to improve your English.
