This place is amazing so close to the busy city centre but so tranquil, the walk takes around a lake with huge bull rushes and hidden little rick gardens, stepping stones, kitchen garden, orchard. The house is charming and the terrace is wonderful place to eat some tinning from the restaurant. Entrance fee seems a little high but many people... More

The gardens are wonderful and well worth a visit. The disappointment, however, was 'afternoon tea' which we'd planned to enjoy as a birthday treat for one of our group. Sadly we found that this option is only available as 'afternoon tea for two' - and there were 3 of us. The staff were unable, and seemingly unwilling, to help, so... More

Dear LoisLi Firstly, we’re so sorry that your friend’s birthday treat was marred by your experience in the tea room. We take great pride in the service we offer across all areas of the house and garden, and I can only apologise that we didn’t deliver on this occasion. Our tea room is so popular that we regularly have queues... More

I find it quite mesmerising that this place is just a little bit hidden away. It's easy to pass so much time in these beautiful gardens!

The gardens are so peaceful - a lovely oasis of calm. My students and I enjoyed a lovely amble around the grounds and then sat on the terrace with a nice cup of tea. The house was interesting and beautifully decorated and preserved. A good place to visit.

Beautiful gardens and house with a cafe and gift shop. We go here throughout the year to their various activities and enjoy it every time. Although not as big as The Botanical Gardens, nor does it have a childrens play area the gardens are of an equal if not higher standard for around half the price. Will visit here time... More

Nothing ostentatious except the amazing redwood trees and gunnera Winterbourne unfurls with simple generosity an affecting horticultural space The cafe is a different kind of delight and you can express your appreciation by becoming a member. Serenity it really is like a lost garden until to find it and it feels like home

Took my elderly mother and father to the house and garden. What an unexpected delight, I have lived in Birmingham all my life and have never visited the gardens before. Lovely, tranquil gardens. Will go again, but I think in Spring when everything is in bloom. The house was very interesting and especially to my mother who used to work... More

Went today as spotted a 241 voucher on vouchercloud and was undecided how to spend a sunny Sunday. I'm so glad I went to Winterbourne. Took my 10 year old daughter and had a lovely few hours. Beautiful gardens, loved the Japanese pond area. Took a picnic, but treated ourselves to cake on the terrace. House has been restored to... More

Wonderfully kept gardens and greenhouses as well as a plant sale area. If you have time, the Afternoon Tea for two people, served on the terrace is a lovely way of easing tired legs. The beautifully restored house gives an insight into the Victorian and Edwardian lifestyle of a famous local industrialist's family, the Nettlefold's. Allow several hours to enjoy... More
