As you are settling in to your surroundings as a student in English Language Immersion, you can’t help but be enamored with the handsome, Edwardian-style Fleetham Lodge that you now call your home away from home. You will stay with like-minded individuals who you can share the excitement and challenges of learning new language skills in this quintessential environment.
The lodge itself is both cozy and grand at the same time. It’s the perfect place to spend your time immersing in English culture as you appreciate being encompassed by exquisite architecture and stately design. A formal entrance hall with quarry tile and a mosaic edged decorative floor is what you’ll be greeted with. There are archways to behold and a tiled-hearth fireplace with a carved oak surround and mantle that will keep you warm in winter months. The farmhouse kitchen is welcoming and inviting, with built-in pine cupboards and some modern touches. You will stay as our guest in one of our four large bedrooms with double or king-sized beds, each with its own private bathroom. These rooms are decorated in the period style for a truly special experience.
As you make your way outside and around the nearly three acres of property, you will notice beautiful flowering seasonal gardens and large expanses of greens and you are instantly transported back to the early 1900s when the Fleetham Lodge first came to be. It is a simpler life where you can relax and contemplate your studies. As a student resident here, you will be able to enjoy taking leisurely walks around the property, reading next to the fountain in sunshine, and joining others for games on the lawn such as croquet, bowls and badminton.
You can venture out and explore what the area has to offer by visiting the popular and much sought after Village of Kirkby Fleetham, which you can read about in the blog post The Benefits of English Immersion in Kirkby Fleetham. Other market towns that are convenient to travel to while you are here are the towns of Northallerton, Bedale and Richmond. There is so much that the Fleetham Lodge and surrounding villages have to offer.
Once you decide to take the next step in improving your English language skills, we are here to walk you through the steps you can take to make that happen in a very special and unique way here at Fleetham Lodge. We can’t wait to show you around your home away from home. Until then, we invite you to join us for a spot of afternoon tea from wherever you are, from our kitchen to yours!
