About the Homestay
I live in an end of terrace 1900 house in a quiet road with lovely neighbours, just a step away from the bustling Gloucester Road. The room is airy and spacious, and available for women only; you'll share my bathroom (large bath and hand-held shower, towels and hair-dryer provided) and are free to use my kitchen and dining room. I have a town garden which catches the afternoon and evening sun. I'm an active retired nurse, speaking French, some Spanish and a little German. I love travelling independently, and enjoy meeting new people. Payment by bank transfer preferred please.

She's very welcoming, easy going and nuturing an all round good egg!!! Cheers Penny, blessings to you both
The room is just as you see it, Penny has a lovely house in great location and had everything I needed for the night I stayed. Penny was really warm and welcoming, lovely to chat with and enjoyed the short time I was there. She was very accommodating with check-in arrangements and kept in good contact throughout. I would have no hesitation to recommend Penny's homestay and would book again. Penny extended great hospitality and I felt very welcome and comfortable in her home.
Penny received me very cordiadly. She made a delicious dinner and it was very easy and interesting to talk to her. All the time she was very helpful. I had a cozy night in the guestroom and would stay there again. Thank you Penny.
Penny was a friendly, kind and interesting host and her house comfortable. She made me feel very welcome, and helped me with directions. A good night's sleep and a lovely breakfast too.
My stay with Penny was absolutely fantastic! She is an awesome host, super helpful and very kind. The location is really good, close to Gloucester Road with all kinds of shops and bars as well as bus stops. The city centre is also very accessible by foot. I would stay with Penny again anytime and highly recommend this place.
