Why do a homestay?
Many students want to experience homestays because they want to learn about a new culture and practice their English in the world's greatest classroom, a local's home.
A homestay gives you a chance not only to experience daily life in England, but also to enjoy locally made, traditional food and really live like a local while learning English all day, every day!
In Heather's home you will have your own double room with a private bathroom in a cozy flat in Todmorden, Yorkshire.
Learn English in
Heather welcomes you in her charming home in the heart of Yorkshire and offers a full homestay tuition package including personalised 1-to-1 English lessons, Yoga lessons, 3 delicious home-cooked meals per day, day/afternoon trips to nearby Manchester or the Lake District and so much more.
Upon sending us your flight details, Heather will be more than happy to pick you up from one of the nearby train station or airports such as Manchester (45mins), Leeds (1h) or Liverpool (1h). We want you to feel safe, welcome and well looked after as soon as you arrive. There's no one better to do that than Heather.
We believe any good homestay should include family meals taken together and maybe even cooked together, if that's something you enjoy. This provides a fantastic opportunity to practice English and make you feel like you are a part of Heather's friendly world. This is why our homestay includes 3 homemade, traditional meals per day.
One of the best ways to bond and learn English without studying is through activities such as yoga, hiking, cooking, or shopping with Heather. Located in a quaint rural village 20 mins from downtown Manchester and close to spectacular nature, Heather's home really has it all. She is also a certified yoga teacher and would be delighted to practice some poses with you.
