Don’t just visit Britain - Live it! If you’re interested in taking your next holiday in the UK and you really want to get to know the place and the people, then homestay offers you a unique opportunity to live like a local and get to see a side of the country that a package tour just can’t offer. We’ll show you things and teach you things that you won’t be able find in any guide books!
We’re passionate about what we do and our priority is to ensure that you have a fantastic experience while staying with us. We’ll be flexible in accommodating you and your needs. You’ll be free to immerse yourself in family life, join us on days out and we can help you plan and book independent trips and activities.
We’re a helpful and friendly family comprising three generations all living in the same house. As well as parents and grandparents, there are three young children and a pet cat. We like to spend as much time together as we can, and usually always eat breakfast and dinner together.
Your hosts, Joseph and Kelly, spent six years teaching English in Japan and have hosted homestay guests since 2004. Joseph works during the day at a local University, while Kelly still teaches English to non native speakers at a local college most days. We’re usually free at the weekends.
We live in a detached house with beautiful countryside views. There is a large garden and decked terrace at the rear for you to enjoy when the weather permits. The house was built in 1936 and still retains many of its original features. We also have off-road parking available on request.
We are situated in the Borough of Newcastle under Lyme, in North Staffordshire and are surrounded by a wealth of picturesque countryside. We also benefit from convenient transportation links which connect the area to major cities to the North and South.
