My name’s Helen and I work for the National Health Service. I have four grown up children. One of my children is currently studying modern languages at University and has been an international student herself. That’s why we would like to provide a welcoming home for students visiting Birmingham. We want to ensure you have a safe and comfortable stay in the UK. We’re a pet friendly family and have two dogs and a cat. They are well behaved and stay in a separate part of the house.

What we Offer

I live in a three-storey town house in Castle Bromwich, a leafy suburb of Birmingham. I have a single room with lots of storage space to offer. There’s a television and dressing table with chair. There’s unlimited internet access. The living room, kitchen with dining area, utility room with tumble dryer, bathroom with bath and over bath shower, downstairs toilet and garage is shared. The kitchen has a dish washer, microwave and coffee machine. There is a desk and chair in the hall if you wish to use this for studying. The garden has a paved area with table and chairs, ideal for enjoying the late evening summer sunshine.

Where we Live

We have several buses that run through Castle Bromwich going into Birmingham Town Centre, Birmingham Airport, The National Exhibition Centre, Resorts World, Fort Shopping Centre and Star City. The M6 and M42 motorway are close by. There are 2 train stations that offer routes to locations all over the country. Within a short walking distance we have Castle Bromwich Hall and Gardens. Most leisure activities are within a reasonable distance such as restaurants, cinema, swimming and bowling. There are two local shopping areas and several supermarkets within walking distance. Although Castle Bromwich is a relatively small place it has good facilities and is in a good location.
