About the Homestay
We are a fun, loud and busy family of 6. We live in a beautiful, 6 bedroom Victorian house only 25 minutes walk from the centre of town or 10 minutes by bus. The Gloucester Road is only 3 minutes walk from us. The Gloucester Road is home to people from all walks of life, where a rich variety of locally run shops, cafes, bars and restaurants manage to thrive alongside the usual high-street chains. In an increasingly standardised world, the Gloucester Road is a breath of fresh air. Restaurants, wine bars, cafes, pubs, toy shops, clothes and shoes shops, hardware stores, dry-cleaners, artisan jewellers, and mouth-watering bakeries sit next to graffitti-decorated pubs and each store reflects their individuality and expertise.
We are about 10 minutes drive from the countryside and not too far from both Universities, specially Bristol University. We have plenty of parks around us and tennis courts just across the road from the house.
We have 4 children although 2 of them are 20 and 18 and have now left home to go to University and the two younger ones are 11 and 12 years old. They are very busy during the week with school and other activities. My husband is a lawyer and works very hard. I am a social worker and work part time, mainly working from home. We have 2 friendly cats.
The guest room is in the loft of the house which means that it is very quiet and not much noise travels up from the floors bellow. Bright, Light and Airy Double bedroom with a king size bed, chest of drawers, wardrove rail, desk and chair, there is also a small TV where you can watch DVD's. The bathroom is next door to the room, which could be of sole use. We have a garden, a large kitchen, sitting room and study downstairs.
We are a bilingual family and Spanish is our second language, English being our main language. We love travelling and meeting new people! We can't wait to meet you.
I am happy to provide supper for £10 per night per person. Please no booking for less than 5 days.
