Family information

I live with my partner, Kasia and our little baby (2017). We enjoy cooking, walking, spending time in nature, reading, socialising with family/ friends, sport (Formula 1, tennis, badminton, swimming etc.) Kasia’s sister and her children live in our town and we regularly see them (two girls age 4 and 8). My parents live in the same town just five minutes’ walk away so we have a very close family life. We have a fantastic sports centre in our town for under £10 you can enjoy almost any activity including swimming, football, tennis, badminton, squash, table tennis, basketball, gymnasium, sauna and even massages and other therapies. Bournemouth is not far away. Bournemouth is beautiful, full of lovely green trees and parks, as well as a stunning 10km long beach. Bournemouth has shopping centres, restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment. Nearby Tower Park is an entertainment complex with a cinema, Splashdown water park, bowling, pool and snooker and restaurants. Finally, we are less than 2 hours from London, Oxford, Bath, Brighton, Southampton, Winchester and Stonehenge.

We live in a large apartment. We have three bedrooms, one bathroom, a very large lounge and classroom area, and a kitchen. We have recently been re-decorated, so it is warm, comfortable and light. We have two rooms available for students. One room has a double bed (for a single or couple) and the second room has two single beds. They are fully furnished rooms with 24 hour access to high speed broadband. The bathroom is shared. Wareham has around 6000 residents. We have shops, cafes, bars and pubs. It has a lovely quiet feel of traditional English culture, whilst being only 25 minutes away from Bournemouth. We enjoy wonderful countryside whilst still being close to major towns and cities.

We have a fantastic sports centre in the town where you can enjoy activities such as swimming, tennis, badminton, squash, basketball, table tennis, gymnasium, sauna and massages. Bournemouth (20 minutes by train) is beautiful, full of lovely green trees and parks, as well as a stunning 10km long sandy beach. Bournemouth has good shopping, restaurants, cafes, bars and entertainment. There is always something to do there, even live music and comedy shows! Tower Park is an entertainment complex close-by with a large cinema, Splashdown Water Park, ten-pin bowling, pool and various restaurants. We are not far from cities such as London, Oxford, Bath, Brighton, Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and Salisbury. We will certainly visit some of these places during your stay.
