This house has been styled in the Victorian Period and is set over three floors. Staying at the Back to Backs gives a more homely stay in the city and a chance to experience urban history, without loosing modern comforts. The sitting room is on the top floor giving the opportunity to sit above the streets to enjoy the cosmopolitan city. It is within easy walking distance of New Street and Moor Street train station. The Bullring shopping centre is within 2 minutes walk as well as the famous Birmingham Markets. There are also a large amount of restaurants, bars and nightclubs within a short walking distance, as well as the Hippodrome and Alexandra theatre, cinemas and museums.

Parking: unloading and loading only is permitted outside the property but there are various public car parks within walking distance.

Accessibility: Please note this cottage has narrow, steep and twisting stairs up to each floor.

Television: A television with inbuilt DVD player is provided, the building is grade II listed, therefore we are not able to install a satellite dish, and with no cable in the area, the television has no reception.

Please note: The cottage is double glazed but due to its central location, with many pubs and restaurants on its door step, it may be noisy at times.

Please note fires are lit in the main house during the day to create the atmosphere of the past so there can be a smoky smell in the cottages due to the houses backing on to each other.

    Returning later this year!

    The purpose of our stay was to experience the Back to Backs and this was really enjoyable. To be able to walk out of the front door directly into the heart of China town was excellent. As can be seen with our survey we did have a problem with cleanliness of the property. However this was swiftly dealt with by Simon and his team. We are returning later this year and looking forward to it.

    Ideal location

    Location is ideal location for all that's on offer in Birmingham. Surrounded by interesting places to visit and eat out. Short walk to New Street Station, so you don't need a car, plus you can hop on a train to nearby towns. Good to live in a piece of history, but still having the 21st century outside your door.

    Reflective of era

    The ambience of the cottage and furnishings was so reflective of the era of the "Back to Backs" if not perhaps a little more luxurious which was very much appreciated! Although being positioned in the centre of Birmingham's city nightlife this did'nt detract from the cosiness of the house at all. In fact we both felt very secure and safe and really enjoyed the convenience of access to the arts ,culture and culinery delights that Birmingham has on offer. The welcome tray, fresh flowers and card that greeted us when we arrived was a lovely touch at the beginning of our stay. However the icing on the cake was our complimentary guided tour of the "Back to Backs" which made our stay so much more personal and such a valuable experience from our very knowledgable guide.Many thanks! Please NT continue with this high standard of service.

    Made enjoyable.....

    I was born in Birmingham and the back to back properties are very special. I can enjoy the whole city on foot or by bus: it is the only National Trust destination for which the dog has to stay at home!

    Made special by:

    Hurst Street, Birmingham is an extremely busy nightspot. We enjoyed watching and listening to the transition from evening/night to early morning. The Back to Backs tour was made very interesting by Eric, our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny and also interested in the group sharing their experiences too. A great experience for all ages. It was nice to be left to explore the house ourselves rather than being shown around. We were told the basics then left to look around which added to the experience. The flowers were a nice touch.
