Practical information



It can be cold in England even in summer so please bring long-sleeved tops, sweater or cardigan and a raincoat even in summer. We will let you know close to your departure date about the current weather forecast. You may wish to bring a collapsible umbrella.

Toiletries and laundry

We will provide towels, basic toiletries and a harirdryer. You can use our washing machine to wash clothes.

Internet access

You will be able to use wifi in the house. You can use our computer for short spells of time for example to send emails or have a Skype conversation. If you require more use of a computer, please bring your own laptop or ipad.


It is a good idea to have a photocopy of the photo page of your passport in a separate bag to your passport just in case you lose your passport.
