Host Families

All families are carefully selected and interviewed by me. In most cases you will be given two or three family options to choose from once your profile has been received. Oxford Homestay will provide you with a proposal containing families and accommodation that closely match your profile and requirements.

Matching you with the right host family

We have a wide range of families registered with us and too many to mention here but all have one thing in common and that is that they will provide you with a warm welcome and treat you as part of their family!

We have families with young children and pets, that are ideally to young visitors who are looking for a “home from home” experience and who would also like to get involved with family social activities. See our Young Homestay Cultural Programme to learn more …….

There are professional families with older children or grown up children who have left home. These families are ideal for the more mature students or business clients who are looking for accommodation and who want to practice their English over mealtimes or at weekends. Some host families/couples are also happy to accompany visitors on sight-seeing trips or social outings to the theatre or cinema.

There are also families who have three or four rooms that they regularly offer to young students and these homes are typically busy with visitors and offer a great opportunity for those travelling alone to meet other young people during their stay here.

Accommodation standards are all good to excellent with some families able to offer en-suite facilities, use of a swimming pool and tennis courts! These additional facilities tend to be on offer from families in more rural locations but with good transport links into the City and usually no more than 15 minutes journey time from the City.
