Convenience on Your Door Step…

Location, location, location. These are the three hurdles any potential build plot has to clear before Damson Homes will even consider developing a site.

And The Smirrells really does deliver!…

Literally just round the corner you will find a rather handy parade of shops. It serves your day to day need pretty well with a healthily stocked Tesco Express, the very nice Highfield Chippy (as voted by our build team) and a healthy sprinkling of bus-stops serving the surrounding area.

Taking a left after this Parade will take you to Yardley Wood Railway Station. It offers direct access to Birmingham City Centre (Moor Street & Snow Hill) and in the opposite direction, the historic Stratford-upon-Avon.

Robin Hood Island

In the opposite direction, there are more comprehensive amenities around Robin Hood Island. These include bus routes, fast-food outlets (KFC, Perfect Pizza, Subway) and some rather excellent Chinese and Indian restaurants (China Garden and Sherwoods).

Also in the vicinity is Waitrose Supermarket and a 24 Hour Tesco Supermarket.


Further south from the Robin Hood Island, one will quickly arrive in the centre of Shirley. Shirley enjoys a vibrant town centre which will be further enhances by the proposed Heart of Shirley Development.
