Staying with a Host Family
The host family ‘total immersion’ experience is the most popular accommodation option with our customers. Staying with a host family guarantees you an authentic taste of Bath life and provides the opportunity for conversation and friendship building. Some of our learners keep in contact with their host family for years after their visit.
Our host families have professional and academic backgrounds, very comfortable homes, and excellent culinary skills. They always do their best to ensure that their guests have a memorable experience, combining topical conversation with delicious cuisine. Don’t worry, if you can’t resist a second helping at dinner, you can always keep fit by jogging through Bath’s beautiful parks before lessons! Our host families also cater to special dietary needs and small appetites.
Your room will be private, usually with an en-suite or private bathroom. Sometimes these will be on their own separate floor. Host families are a short walk from the centre of town, but they are usually happy to drive guests in bad weather or when they have luggage.
If you request a host family, we’ll send you a questionnaire that will help us select the most suitable host family for you. We’ll then send you their details, so that you can make contact with them before your arrival.
Host Family Charge: £320 / €400 for 5 to 7 nights with breakfast and dinner
