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, particularly at the weekend.

    Excellent location

    Excellent location in centre of town. Had the guide round the Back to Backs on the Sunday morning and the guide was excellent. So knowledgeable and we had a very enjoyable trip.

    Perfect retreat

    Staying in a historic setting in a city centre was a special and privileged experience. There is so much to do within walking distance including The Backs themselves. The property provided a perfect retreat to return to after a day of exploring museums, canals etc. The basic kitchen provided us with all we needed to prepare a meal before heading out to one of the theatres or Symphony Hall. Much more welcoming and homely than the usual city break destination of bland hotel or travelodge. A really great place to stay and an invigorating change from our usual country cottage destination.The welcome on arrival and on the Backs tour much appreciated.

    Fabulous back to back experience

    We came for Xmas markets but hadn't realised just how fab the back to back experience was. Made enjoyable....The authenticity, smells of paragon and wood burning fires from the back to backs. The homelessness of the cottage. The really excellent tour.

    Very interesting house

    The house was very interesting and the tour with Jeff was volunteering at it's best. The position was in central Birmingham and we managed to walk to most places of interest we wished to see. Staff at the visitor centre were also very good, cheery and helpful. Please pass our comments and thanks to the staff in the Back to Backs in Birmingham. We would like to think all destinations would be as good.

    Ideal location

    Its location makes it an ideal base for visiting numerous attractions all within easy walking distance. The cottage was also excellent for a visit to the Hippodrome and plenty of shopping and eating facilities almost literally on the doorstep. Overall the 'cottage' was a unique experience with a wonderful ambience. In fact we liked it so much we may give number 54 a go. If you read the visitors book you'll see my wife managed to fill a page about how much we enjoyed our short break.
