Homestay Oxford is situated in a large house located in the City of Oxford (click here to see a map). You have probably seen the photos on the home page but if not look here. To read more about what to expect in a homestay check here.
We have taken overseas students for short homestays, normally 1, 2 or 3 weeks, for many years. Oxford is a wonderful place to visit for a short break - it is full of local attractions including the Colleges of Oxford University, our local river Isis (which eventually becomes the Thames in London) and much, much more. Homestay Oxford is a perfect base for exploring Oxford.

We also provide an option where beyond the normal homestay you can have a Tourism/Culture option or an English language option. These are normally for 15 or 20 hours per week; they can be taken as a single person, or for two, if you are a couple or a parent and child. We also offer the services of a guide if you wish to be accompanied on your visits, for example, to London or a beautiful local point of interest such as Blenheim Palace.

Ayaka from Osaka, Japan, enjoyed her stay with us in March 2009 and brought her ‘friend’, her Euphonium, with her. In the picture can be seen an oil painting of Oxford painted by Helen - it shows the Sheldonian Theatre. Cristina and Elena from Italy, who visited our Home stay in April 2009, visited some local beauty spots including the famous church in Iffley village and Iffley loch on the river Thames.
