Homestay Accommodation Fees
The vast majority of our host(s) offer accommodation on a half board basis – this means that your breakfast and evening meal will be provided 7 days a week at a cost of £130 per week for single occupancy and £120 per week for shared occupancy.
If you choose half board accommodation you will be expected to be punctual at meal times therefore if you find that you are not going to be able to attend a meal it is very important that you tell your host so they know not to cook for you. It is also very important that you tell your host about your food likes and dislikes so they can cater for your needs accordingly.
A small selection of our hosts offer a self catering option at a cost of £100 per week, which would mean that you would be responsible for the buying and cooking of your food.
