About Mr K. McLaughlin

The Apartment is located to the rear of our family home where we have lived for the last 11 years.

Mr K. McLaughlin purchased this bungalow in 2006

Why Mr K. McLaughlin chose Birmingham

The central location but within a semi rural setting is what most appealed to us.

What makes this bungalow unique

Open country side views with short walks to local village pubs / restaurants, only 4 doors from the Malt Shovel Gastro pub in Barston, yet only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Solihull centre, Genting arena etc

Lovely property which is very handy for the airport and NEC.

  • 4 of 5

A warm welcome and helpful advice re local taxi firm and good pub only four doors away. It is a comfortable property in a quiet area. We only stayed one night but it would be ideal as a base for Birmingham. Unfortunately it was wet and the stepping stones path was not ideal. Had it been dry the garden would have been lovely for games.

Lovely convenient accommodation. Peaceful setting but close to city life.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely holiday apartment. Very clean with everything you could need. Peaceful village and local environment but not far from Solihull centre and Birmingham city. Lovely friendly kind owner. The only thing that could improve on this holiday stay would be a hot tub. We would definitely stay here again and again and highly recommend it.

Lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend and it was a brilliant place to stay. Property is very comfortable. We found the owner to be extremely helpful and personable. The property is close to knowle, which has lovely restaurants. It's close also to the malt shovel which is very nice with good food. We would definitely recommend it and will stay again next time we are in the UK.
