About the Homestay
I live in a residential area within the Olympic host city of Stratford. I live with my husband.
Our home is minutes away from Stratford Underground Station and Maryland and Forest Gate rail station. Our local bus stops offer buses directly into central London.
Westfield Shopping Centre with its array of shops, bars, restaurants, cinema and bowling and much more is within easy reach from our home.
From our home it's a 15 minutes walk away from either Forest Gate Library or Stratford Library.
There is a large leisure center opposite our house that includes swimming pools, cafes, play areas and many new gym facilities. Atherton Leisure Center welcomes all people and all ages to them.
We hope you come, stay and enjoy yourself!

Jai passé 10 magnifiques jours chez Elisabeth et son mari. Ce sont des hôtes gentils, disponibles et jai été a l'aise dans leur maison. Le quartier était agréable et la chambre spacieuse et propre. Je repartirai avec plaisir chez eux. Merci pour tout
Very nice and helpful!
My Homestay experience with Elizabeth was wonderful. Both she and her family were incredibly kind and accommodating. I felt very at home with them. The area is nice and not far from the tube station for anyone wishing to go into the city often. Great experience, would definitely book with them again.
It was my first ever homestay. Found the host family and their children warm and loving. Will most definitely go back there again the next time I am in London.
Elizabeth and her husband Thomas are a very warm and caring couple. When we arrived we explained we needed to get to the Olympic stadium. Thomas showed us a short-cut from the main road to their home and also took us in his car to the Westfield shopping centre. The room was clean and warm and the beds were comfy.
Elizabeth and her family were very friendly and inviting, her husband even dropped us off at the tube station in the morning. We would stay here again as it was quiet and comfortable.
It was my first experience with Homestay.com. and it was great! It was simple, but cozy family home in a unbelievably quiet street (it is not so far from the center of Stratford!). We slept so well! Guest rooms are on the 2nd floor apart from hostesses rooms. Elizabeth and her husband are very, very kind, hearty, friendly and helpful. As well as other family members we met (but they don't live there). The price is very good, because it is London transport zone 3, and there is a very good transport connection with London's center, Kew garden, Greenwich. Not very far from underground station (10-15 minutes walk), bus is near the house. The only thing I would suggest, call Elizabeth to meet You, because the house is very hard to find - especially if You arrive late. But if you get to know where is the right way, it is very easy to find. Stratford is a nice place, too. We were very pleased staying here.
Wonderful people, friendly. Nice comfortable rooms. Great stay. Thanks
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
We stayed with Elizabeth and her husband for 5 days over New Year's Eve. We had a great time. They are a very lovely and welcoming couple who helped us whenever we had a question. The room was comfortable and warm. Breakfast had everything you need for starting in the day. There is a bus station very close to the accommodation and Stratford station within a 10 minute walk. We would really recommend this Homestay to everyone and definitely stay there another time if we are in London again.
