About the Homestay
We are a friendly and welcoming couple with young children. We offer a relaxed and casual homestay and enjoy meeting people from around the world. I am British and my husband Jeremy is American, and so our family culture is somewhere in-between... tea and scones one day, Southern BBQ the next...
Our lovely home is an easy bus-ride from Bristol city centre, or you can ride a bike along the lovely cycle path that runs past our house.
We really enjoy family time, and we have two young sons, aged four and one. Our four-year-old son enjoys having overseas guests and will probably have many questions for you about your country and culture!
Our home is spacious, particularly the loft room for homestay guests, which can sleep a family of four. The room is bright and airy and there is enough room to relax and unwind, or even do yoga or other exercise.
Our neighbourhood of Fishponds is conveniently located close to the city centre and to the University of the West of England. You can take a bus to the centre or ride a bike along the beautiful Bristol-Bath bike path. Within a short walk are plenty of shops and cafes to enjoy. We love our city, so we are very happy to help you plan outings and share local knowledge with you. If you like playing music, we would love to hear you play and we have several instruments around the house. We love a good jam session, and Jeremy runs an open-mic in town.
Wherever you are from, we welcome you to come and enjoy our friendly and relaxed home!

The most kind sweet happy family. Rebecca and Jeremy (and their lovely children) felt us like members of the family. The room is very big, comfortable and bright. The neighborhood is quite and there are available parking on the street. We have spent a lot of time talking of the surrounding and they are very helpful to give us suggestions. Five stars!!!!
I spent a wonderful time among this lovely family. They are really kind, helpful, cheerful and they love music a lot ! They have two very cute sons who will make your stay funny and amazing! I higly recommand you to stay at their place if you want to improve your English and have an unforgettable time in Bristol.
Thank you very much Rebecca, Jeremy, Ben and Samy !
