Homestay accommodation at Hilderstone College

Most students choose to stay with one of our homestay families. This offers excellent value for money and also means you can continue to practise your English as well as discovering more about life in Britain. All our homestay hosts are caring and will treat you as a member of the family. We will do our best to place you with a homestay family who match your individual needs and requirements. The majority of families are within walking distance of the College (30 minutes maximum). If you are placed with a homestay family further away we will provide you with a free bus pass giving you unlimited travel in the local area.

We will arrange your homestay family accommodation for you, including:
  • your own bedroom
  • a place for you to study
  • breakfast and dinner on weekdays (Monday to Friday)
  • breakfast, lunch and dinner at weekends (Saturday and Sunday)
  • no student of the same nationality staying with you (unless requested)
  • a laundry service
