Romsley has an eclectic mix of houses of all shapes and sizes from small bungalows and pretty cottages to substantial country homes, quite literally a house to suit almost anyone. It retains it quite rural charm and yet you can be in Birmingham City Centre within 20-25 minutes and to either junction 3 or junction 4 of the M5 motorway within 10 minutes. The village has its own popular Primary School St Kenelms CE and historically has been in the catchment area of Haybridge High School in Hagley, one of the most oversubscribed schools in the local area and rated Outstanding by Ofsted.
