Homestay Accommodation
Experience British Culture and Improve Your English 
Stay with an English family in Torquay, enjoy their food and practice your English! Whatever your age, nationality or requirements, we have no hesitation in recommending our homestays!  
• Living with a family will give you a unique insight into the local culture, in terms of visiting local places of interest, meeting local people and trying local cuisine. 
• Staying in a host family is the perfect way to improve your language skills. Staying with a host family will immerse you in the English language outside the classroom 
• Living with a family is more relaxing because you don’t have to worry about doing the laundry, cleaning up after yourself and paying bills, meaning you have more time to do other things. This works very well for students who want to concentrate on improving their English and enjoying their time in Torquay! 
We offer two categories of Homestay: 
Private bedroom with a shared bathroom. 
Private bedroom with a private bathroom. 
All our students are met by their homestay host upon arrival in Torquay at the bus station or train station, so it's very important that we receive arrival times well in advance.
