About our home

Cosy, cute Victorian home. Perfect base for exploring the amazing architecture in this quaint Quaker-built model village, plus of course Cadbury World!! Simple but comfortable, with good selection of CDs,DVDs & books for a relaxing evening by the fire or in the garden. Beautiful surroundings, directly opposite original William Morris 'Arts & Crafts' style houses, & looking out over a heath with stunning sunsets. A minute's walk down the road is the striking Rowheath Pavillion & grounds, perfect for an afternoon walk, or an evening drink in the bar. In the opposite direction, one minute's walk to the fantastic organic deli & cafe with garden, 'Leverton & Halls', local newsagent, hair salon for some pampering or the small but perfect Purple Gallery, showcasing art in a variety of media. For eating in, the organic butcher is very popular.
Five minutes walk is the beautiful Bournville Village Green, with a selection of lovely shops & cafes, amazing architectural structures (Rest House, Bournville Schools, Carillion, Church of St Francis of Assisi & Colleges) & Tudor Selly Manor. UK home-swappers may recognise locations used in the daytime soap 'Doctors', who film regularly around here!! Five minutes walk from home is the train station with excellent links to the city centre (10 mins), passing through the beautiful Birmingham University.
From there, explore the many & varied eateries (New York Times listed Birmingham in its top 20 places to eat in 2012!), shopping, museums & art galleries, theatres, cinemas, bars. Or hop on a train for another 10 minutes to get to Birmingham International (airport) & the LG arena for national exhibitions and concerts.Stratford-upon-Avon is also easily accessed by train from Birmingham city centre..
