What is nearby?
Allocated space in shared parking area between a small row of terraced houses and private gardens. Etiquette in the area is that the area directly behind your house is yours to use for parking, and as I don't drive this area is always free. The houses and parking area are situated in a discrete, not-well-known area and is very safe. Entry to the parking area is narrow and wouldn't be recommended for larger vehicles, although a neighbour does routinely park a people carrier round there. The parking spot is a 5 minute walk from both Tamworth train station and town centre.
This is very tight parking place, and when I tried to park there , there was 1) a rubbish bin in the middle of the drive 2) the neighbours car was partly on the driveway. So I went and parked elsewhere. When you are on a tight timeline and need to catch a train, this was very frustrating.
A hidden gem! As other reviews mention the access to the space is quite tight but my car is small enough that it wasn't a problem. Based on other reviews saying they had difficulty finding the space I decided to do a dry run the day before to save any stress when having a train to catch, but I found it with no issue. It's less than 5 min walk from the station and very private and secure. Not to mention a much more reasonable price to the station car park. Made my journey stress free and I will definitely be using the space again :)
Super close to the train station! Easy to find, though if you have a big car, you might want to contact the owner first. Getting to the space could be tricky in a larger car. In my Mini it was no problem getting in or out.
Could do with some signage to indicate which parking spot it is - simple 6 up on the fence would be great
Secluded spot. Nice..
Great for Tamworth station. Only reason for 4 stars and not 5 because of very narrow entrance. Will definitely use again.
