About the Homestay
We live on a very busy estate with lots to do and see for the young. I live with my partner, Andy (Bez) who is a ground worker and we have 7 children, 5 of whom have left home now. We just have Jodie 19 and Robbie 21 at home now. The house is always lively until i want a bit of peace but not for long as that's how we like it! I have 7 grandchildren who come to visit. We live on the same street. There's a sports center and pool and nearby many shops which are just a bus ride away. We have 3dogs; 2 very small ones who love to play and are very affectionate and a Husky/Akita who is big but soft as a brush and loves playing, long walks and running in the many fields we have near us. i can accomodate up to 4 guests in 1 room and 2 in the other .work is now done to provide another2 showers and toilets .very friendly and easy going family and down to earth.accomodate yongsters to 30 yrs old not 23 as says below.
I would like to point out that the guests I would like to stay and cater for are the 18 to 23 year olds as they would fit in a lot better. Also this is the sort of age range that the rooms are most suited to.

Fantastic stay. Lovely host. Will certainly come back again
Shirley is such a lovely host and easy going. she and her partner (Bez) made me feel at home and I truly love the experience. Not forgetting the guest room, it was superb and the opposite (better) of what was advertised. I suggest you give them a try when considering a home stay accommodation. Thanks Shirley and Bez for been their when I needed it. Ebi
