About Us

Caz and her friendly team at Exeter Homestay UK have been welcoming overseas students to Devon and the surrounding areas for over ten years. A small, family-run setup, they match the very best host families with young people and studying adults so they can feel at home whilst learning a new language and exploring the South West. They put together inspiring, educational programs to bring the students’ language studies to life, both in the classroom and out.

From summer school programs to private overseas fostering and educations stays for large groups – Exeter Homestay UK offers a whole range of options for students looking to experience everything that the beautiful South West has to offer.

By organizing inspiring educational trips and homely host family stays, we’re on a mission to build confidence, communication skills and encourage independent living so our students learn how to thrive away from home.
