Woodbrooke is a Quaker study centre and is also an excellent place to stay. It is on direct bus route to the city centre, has lovely grounds and is on the edge of leafy Bournville not far from Cadbury World. It runs a wide variety of short courses some religious some not but all with a spiritual inspiration in keeping with Quaker principles of peace tolerance and openness. The food, eaten communally at long tables, is really good with options for all diets and with tea coffee and snacks available through the day. You can stay just for b and b very reasonably too. Very few televisions but lots of books and a jigsaw always on the go.
A lovely place - I always come away refreshed.
