About the Homestay
My home is a 10 minute walk from the City Centre by the leafy River path. I live in a terrace house on a really quiet but friendly street and we regularly have street gatherings with a little music and food. I understand the concerns of females travelling alone and only host female guests offering a safe and really comfortable environment - You will receive a warm welcome! Your room is a lovely double with a desk and lamp for study and right next to the bathroom. I live alone so you will be the only guest (other than a very friendly tortie cat called Nano - prone to sudden bursts of affection towards humans). I work full time for a local charity so am out and about in the community lots and enjoy quiet time at home after a busy day. I like wild swimming in the countryside and take any opportunity to to go to the Yorkshire Coast whatever the weather! I'm easy going and look forward to meeting you!

About the Area
My home is on a very quiet street - not a through road so the only traffic is residents and visitors. There is free parking, but can get a bit tight, so you might not always get a spot directly outside. The small street takes you down the stone steps to the riverpath and is a delightful leafy green 10 min walk to the city centre. I am 3 mins away from the bus stops which take you 5 mins into town and the rail station, or 10 mins the other way to the designer outlet (out of town indoor shopping centre and food outlet). I'm a quick bus ride or 15 minute walk to both Universities so perfect for short term students or visiting academics. It's about 20 min walk over the river bridge to the Knavesmire events and famous Racecourse. There are 3 little independent breakfast and sandwich shops and a Sainsburys on the main road, and a little further down 2 larger supermarkets.
