    Made special by:

    The decor and chance to step back in time. Being in the heart of the city was great. The local staff were very friendly, polite and informative.

    Sensitively modernised

    The house is sensitively modernised to keep the size and feel of how it might have been (although without the crowded families of the past) and we could kid ourselves we were living in the past whilst enjoying 21st century amenities! This is unique - not a cottage, but a fantastic inner city retreat. Very different, I imagine, from the usual image of NT in the countryside. The vibrant city has lots to do, and the historical aspects of the house and the guided tour of the back-to-backs are perfect for a short break.

    Special and personal

    It was a great experience to stay in a back to back house and having told friends about it and their interest in it, you may have more bookings. The flowers on the table with the tray set ready for a cup of tea was lovely. Also the note from the caretaker and the pint of milk in the fridge made it feel very special and personal.

    Welcoming

    All National Trust employees and volunteers were very welcoming and helpful. I was born in Birmingham. This stay allowed me to visit some local museums and to meet up with friends.

    Trip down memory lane

    As I was born in the back to backs in Summer Lane it was a trip down memory lane for me and I really enjoyed it. Everyone spoken to was very helpful and very polite.
