About the Homestay
We live in a lovely Victorian terrace with lots of original features in Aigburth, (officially a 'great place to live: https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/aigburth-among-best-places-live-16115852.!) We are a stone's throw from the restaurants of Lark Lane and are just over the road from Sefton Park. On top of that, we are on the #82 bus route, which takes 10-15 minutes to Liverpool city centre, which has.... everything! History, architecture, galleries and museums, theatre, great nightlife and football.
Guests will have an attic room with a double bed, and their own bathroom. Come and go as you please. We can provide a light breakfast and chat. Pete is a geography professor at Liverpool university, while Bev is a social researcher. We have two kids, Polly (13) and Gabriel (11), interested in piano/choir and scouts, respectively. We love to meet new people and regularly host foreign students. Bev can also speak intermediate French and various family members are trying to learn Spanish, German and Polish.

We welcome families, couples or single females, but no pets, I'm afraid, because of allergies. (We do have a couple of outdoor guinea pigs). There is no off-street parking, but it's usually not a problem to find somewhere to park. You are welcome to borrow our bikes if we aren't on them!
Smoking is not allowed.
Extermely kind-hearted, friendly family who care much about others!
