The neighbourhood

Harborne, a leafy suburb of Birmingham located approx 2 miles outside of the city centre; Otherwise known as the Chelsea of Birmingham . Harborne High Street is in walking distance of The Studio. I have a local gastro pub just down the road which serves good food and has a log fire in the winter or BBQ's in their spacious garden in the summer - and live music then too.
Harborne has a range of restaurants including Michelin starred 'Turners' and other chain restaurants - Pizza Express, Prezzo etc. Waitrose, Boots, Costa, Nero are all a 5 minute walk away. Restaurants range from Thai to Chinese, Italian, Indian, Pizza and fish and chips so there's no need to go into the city centre. Try Harborne Kitchen - our newest restaurant in Harborne. Favourite Pubs are The Plough, The New Inn.
The Studio is a 15 min walk from the University of Birmingham, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the University train station. Edgbaston cricket ground is nearby as is the new dental hospital at Pebble mill. The M5 motorway is a 7 minute drive away for access to the south .

Getting around

Buses run up and down Harborne High Street every few minutes and run into town or to Birmingham University or to The Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The nearest station is at Birmingham University - a 15/20 min walk from The Studio. New street station (now known as 'Grand Central station') is a 15 minute taxi ride away in the city centre. Buses also go from Harborne to New Street station.
There is a taxi company (TOA) on the same road. Uber taxis are popular if you have the app.
I can assist with bus numbers and bus top locations.

Other things to note

Parking is free on neighbouring roads. There are some restrictions on Vivian Road ( between 8.30am - 9.30am ; 3pm- 4pm Monday to Friday)

If you need the garage - I am happy to arrange this but a fee would be payable.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Karen's place for 4 nights in April and had an absolutely lovely stay! Karen was available for any questions or concerns and made us feel very at home in the studio- the cookies were an especially thoughtful touch :) The studio itself is extremely clean and comfortable. It's a wonderful cozy flat for a couple and we loved the quiet garden view from the windows. We could not have been happier with our stay!

This studio is a lovely place. In an excellent part of Harborne! the pub nearby (1 min literally) was good! Easy parking. Easy communication with Karen. I would certainly recommend this place! For Bussiness and couples it is an ideal place. For families too -no toddlers as there are some stairs but for bigger kids, it shuld be ok).

I would love to welcome people to stay in my studio flat. I enjoy meeting people and am always happy to advise where to eat, go for walks, or other local areas worth a visit. I am upbeat, love life and am happy - always spontaneous! I have high standards for my guest accommodation - cleanliness is key!
PS. I don't have any pets on the premises - so no issues for allergy sufferers. This a no smoking property. Thank you.
I welcome all people - travelling for leisure or business.
