General Homestay Information

Our advice for a successful homestay experience.

The benefit of staying with a local host is that you will experience the British way of life first-hand. You will also learn more about British and Welsh cultures. Customs, habits, food and daily routines in the UK can be different to those in your own country. It can be very exciting to learn about these things and this page should provide you with some useful homestay information.

During your first few days in the UK, you might find that it feels strange. Don’t worry because this is normal. Our homestay providers understand this. They will be happy to give advice and help you feel at home the best they can. The key to ensuring a happy and successful homestay experience depends on mutual respect and a willingness to adapt to a new way of living.
