Knowle doesn’t have a train station and the nearest is in Dorridge. Solihull is less than 10 minutes away and has a direct train line into Birmingham Moor Street, taking only 12 minutes. Birmingham airport is only 11 minutes away by car and flies to popular holiday destinations all around Europe.
Knowle has a park and canal running through the village which make for a lovely easy walk in all weathers. For a more substaintial day out, there are plenty of National Trust properties in the surrounding area as well as nature reserves too. Knowle high street has plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants for you to choose from, but there’s also a full day’s shopping to be had in Birmingham too.

Just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for overseeing my property during its tenancy. You have all been very professional and I will certainly not hesitate to recommend your company to fellow landlords.Ms S, Solihull
I recently moved and decided to use Hunters in Knowle. Although the process proved to be a stressful one, everyone in the office was very supportive and kept me up to date every step of the way. I was impressed with their marketing and liked being able to log in to my own on-line system to look at viewings summary and feedback. Thank you - great service from start to finish.Matt Hewston
Honestly couldn't have asked for more from my estate agent. Went above and beyond with selling my house and helping me purchase my new one. Will use them time and time again in the future. Couldn't recommend more.Joe Weale
