About the Homestay
We live on the outskirts of London. Our house looks very ordinary from the outside but inside you will find plenty of space and a warm welcome. We have a small garden. We like our guests to feel part of the family, but there is no pressure to do this if you want to keep to yourself. There are four of us: my husband and I and our grown up son and daughter, who are both in higher education. We have been hosting for eleven years and we really enjoy getting to know people from all over the world.

We like to respect the rights of our neighbours, so we don't make a lot of noise after 9 in the evening. Sorry, but no smokers or pets. We do our best to re-cycle everything that is re-cyclable. For longer stay guests a small charge will be made for use of the washing machine.
Smoking is not allowed.
Just an amazing host and a great family. She let me read from her library and she was caring and welcoming. Her son was also very kind and understanding. Would definitely stay there again.
5 stars and very positive experience.
Thank you for all the availability you have given me.
Hello Constance and hello mister David
Constance und ihr Mann sind sehr sehr nett. Das Haus ist sehr süß gestaltet aber sehr schwer zu finden wenn man sich nicht auskennt.
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
très bon accueil familial
on aimerait rester plus longtemps
