Homestay Families

Staying with a host family in Exmouth

At Mountlands, we are passionate about immersive, truly British experiences, and what better way to #maximiseconfidence than staying with a friendly, native English speaking, family during your visit and practising your conversational skills in a relaxed, home environment. We offer all of our junior students full board accommodation with British homestay families in Exmouth, within a short distance (maximum 30 minutes walk or 15 minute bus journey) of the school.

We are proud of our community of families and believe that they are one of the main reasons students return year on year!

“Enter as strangers; leave as friends…”

What to expect:

  • High quality families

    All of our families have a valid DBS check (criminal record), a gas safety certificate for their home and solid references/ are visited by our accommodation team regularly. They attend seasonal training workshops at our school on how to care for students and enjoy sharing ideas with each other on how to make students’ stays as amazing as possible.

  • You will usually stay in shared single or twin rooms

    Your room may be shared with other students of the same age and sex as yourself, speaking another native language (an individual room supplement is available on request). This is a great way to make friends, learn about other cultures and work together to improve your English. Many of our students make friends for life with their host partner.

    Please note: this may not always be possible and you may get a room to yourself anyway.

  • All of our homestay families are beautifully diverse

    They include single mothers, elderly folk, as well as traditional families and younger couples. However, they all have one thing in common – they enjoy welcoming foreign students into their homes, and will treat you like one of their own!

  • Our team are here for you

    If you have any concerns about your stay, we’re here to help. Where possible, we’ll cater to any requests. There is always someone available at the school to talk to about your accommodation. Moreover, we have a 24 hour line for any emergencies.
