Homestay Accommodation

Header Logo

Your accommodation is one of the most important aspects of your stay in the UK. Homestay accommodation combines quality, friendliness and value for money. It is suitable for those who want a lot of contact with their homestay provider and those who prefer to be independent. Homestay accommodation provides you with a first-hand experience of English life, and is also the place where you will learn the most English, outside of the classroom.

All homestay accommodation is carefully selected and most hosts have worked with Brasshouse for many years. The Accommodation Officer works closely with our Homestay providers to arrange appropriate placements and to ensure that they meet the quality and safety guidelines set by English UK and the British Council.

Not all Homestay accommodation consists of 2 parents and children, we have many experienced and friendly homestay providers who have different living arrangements - some are couples with no children some are single parents with children and some are single adults. Our Homestay providers are accustomed to having visitors stay in their home. They will want to make sure that you are happy and comfortable in their home.

All Homestay providers live within a travelling distance of approximately 60 minutes from Brasshouse.

We offer 4 types of Homestay Accommodation:

  • Room Only
  • Half-Board (breakfast and evening meal)
  • Mixed Board (breakfast and evening meal) Monday to Friday and (breakfast, lunch and evening meal) Saturday and Sunday
