Wonderful family loved to stay for next family holidays . Most recommended
Very nice family! We feel at home
It has been a real pleasure to stay with Sharon and her family. I definetely recommend it to everyone from those who want to learn English to those who want a place to stay to look for a job or whatever. They are great.
There are no words that can fully explain how wonderful this family has been with us; I'm a teacher and took 7 students with me and they made us feel part of their family…their children are really great at stimulating and helping with the use of the language…better than many teachers, believe me!!!!And then there's plenty of common spaces in the house, very clean and cosy…there is a lot to visit around.It's a pity we only stayed one week…we'll definitely go back next summer for two weeks but probably at Christmas too!!
Obviously the 7 students totally agree with me…that was a wonderful experience and we all suggest trying once and you'll understand.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
All i can say - brilliant welcoming bubbly family, full of unlimited positive energy.
Family also shared a great knowledge of Bristol and surrounding areas which made the stay worth while. would definitely recommend Sharron's place
Una familia encantadora, divertida y cariñosa.Ideal para aprender o mejorar tu ingles.Los hijos de Sharon han hecho pasar a mis hijos unas vacaciones inolvidables.
Sharon la dueña es una persona generosa y muy cariñosa que desde el primer dia te hace sentir como en tu casa.
Gracias por hacernos pasar unas vacaciones fantasticas!!!
Mes enfants et moi-même avons adoré l'ambiance très conviviale de cette famille d'accueil.
Sharon, Greg et leurs enfants ainsi que les nombreux autres invités ont été une occasion unique d'échanger et d'améliorer notre anglais. Rires et bonne humeur guarantis !!!
De plus, l'endroit est géographiquement très intéressant puisqu'il permet de découvrir de nombreux aspects du sud de l'Angleterre et du Pays de Galles.
