Thank you for your interest in our beautiful home. Our traditional Victorian house was built in 1890, and we welcome guests to come and stay with us.
The large double bedroom is light and spacious and has everything you will need for your stay here. The bedroom has been completely redecorated within the last 6 months, keeping all of its original Victorian features. You will be sleeping in a luxurious antique walnut double bed, with a very comfortable orthopedic memory foam mattress, and luxury duck feather bedding. The room has two side tables, a vintage Singer sewing machine dressing table, and an antique walnut chest of drawers where you can store your clothes.
Included in the price of your room is:
- Fresh bed linen
- Fresh towels
There is room on the floor for an air bed (which we can provide), which can accommodate a third guest if required.
In addition to your bedroom, you will have full access to the communal rooms in the house; dining/living room, kitchen, bathroom, study and garden.
The kitchen has everything you need throughout your stay; oven, kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge, all utensils. You are also welcome to help yourself to complimentary tea/coffee/hot chocolate, milk, cereals and all basic food items. You can also use the washing machine and dryer as you please.
If you need to work during your stay here, we have a newly refurbished study room you are welcome to use. The study has an old reclaimed school desk where you are free to work.
The Living/Dining Room
The living/dining room has a TV/DVD player and speaker system you are free to use. We have a wood burning stove that you can relax in front of. We have a newly upcycled farmhouse table and chairs where you are welcome to eat/work. We also have a set of vintage chesterfield sofas where you can relax.
The bathroom is also newly refurbished; there is a brand-new, Victorian-style wash basin, toilet and bath/shower, complete with Victorian fittings and instant, unlimited hot water. We can also provide you with any toiletries if you forget to bring your own.
Finally, we have a beautiful south-facing garden which is nice to use in the summer months. There is an antique cast-iron table where you can eat and relax. We also have a Weber BBQ you are free to use. We also grow our own herbs which you are welcome to help yourself to when cooking (summer only).
Due to its close proximity to the University/Hospital, parking your car in this area can be difficult. Let us know if you are planning on bringing a car, we have off-street parking but may need to arrange a permit for your car.
Interaction with Guests
You will be sharing our house with me, my boyfriend, our house rabbit and our dog. Our dog stays outside when we are out and is restricted to downstairs only. In addition we also have a lodger in one of the other bedrooms.
We have been travelling around Europe and find the Wimdu concept fantastic, we like meeting new people and have met interesting people, and had interesting conversations and experiences through our time. For this reason we recently decided it would be a great idea to start using Wimdu as hosts. So far it has been a fantastic experience and we haven't looked back! We have hosted people from all over the world and have even been invited to come and stay at our guests homes! We like to interact with our guests and make them feel comfortable, like a home from home. We also understand that people like their own space, in this respect we adapt to our guests needs.
Our Victorian terrace is perfectly situated for anybody temporarily visiting The University of Birmingham or the Queen Elizabeth (QE) Hospital. We are directly opposite the QE hospital, it’s a one minute walk to get there (cross over the road), The University of Birmingham campus is a five minute walk. Our place is also very close to Birmingham city centre. The University train station is a five minute walk away and can take you directly to Birmingham city centre (6 minute train ride). There is also a bus stop outside of our house which can take you to Birmingham city centre or other surrounding areas.

Ellis and Josh were great hosts. We came to Birmingham to study, and our first station was their house from where we started looking for flats. We got lots of helpful advices from them: where to find a flat, which websites to use, where to get a bike, the shortest way to university, and and and... We would have been completely lost without them. Thank you for everything! We couldn't have made a better choice for a start here.
The house is very cosy, warm and welcoming. We also made friends with Sadie (do I write her like this?), their very excited old dog lady. So if you want to meet a really crazy and funny dog, you should definitely stay at Ellis' and Joshs!
Thank you guys and see you soon :).
