My name’s Vicky I work part time at Pizza Hut, so lots of free pizza on Friday evenings! I have 2 children. A 24-year-old son, called Oliver, who works as a study skills coach and a 22-year-old daughter, Charlotte, who is studying political science and psychology at Birmingham University. We have three amazing dogs, well one mummy dog and her puppies ... They are very friendly and affectionate, we also have one cat and two fish!

Where we Live

Our home is less than a minute walk from the main high street, where you’ll find a good variety of shops, cafes, restaurants, take always and English pubs ... The bus stop is 1-minute walk from our front door. There you will find plenty of buses running frequently to Birmingham city centre, a 10 to 25 minutes journey; also buses running to Birmingham university and the train station 7 to 15 minutes travel time depending on the time of day. Harborne really is a lovely area to live in, it is very community minded and has a great atmosphere. We have a local library, as well as a local swimming baths and gym. There are plenty of parks and walks nearby if you enjoy the outdoors and a lot of cafes if you prefer getting out the house but staying inside. Our house is friendly and homely, sometimes quiet, sometimes busy, but always happy .... And we will do our best to make you feel welcome and at home. Hopefully a home from home for you.
