This is a real hidden gem. The house is such a delight to walk around and each room has its own story. The gardens are a must see too and if you are into photography then you will be spoilt for choice. It is such a joy to experience how a family lived in the early 20th century, plus the... More

A party of U3A members of their gardening group visited Winterbourne House recently. What a hidden gem. A house so beautifully furnished showing how the Nettlefold family would have lived, was a joy to see. The timelines and history information boards were clear and concise giving an insight into the family's house. A tour and talk of the grounds was... More

Well it was secret to me, I’d not known about these gardens until I stumbled on an article about it so decided to make a visit. We went on a sunny Saturday afternoon in July, it was not busy. A lovely garden, a couple hours is all you will need at the most, including a walk down to the lake... More

Despite living in Bormingham, I was unaware of the existence of Winterbourne House and Garden until a friend mentioned it. The house is magnificent and it very immersive. But, the gardens were the absolute highlight of the visit. I could have lost myself in them for many, many hours. A little bit of paradise in the heart of the city.

I could find out about the place thanks to TripAdvisor and it's absolutely fantastic. I thought that it will be just small park with some flowers, but it's much bigger and has got many sections. I like the fact that in one moment you could feel like in a garden, then like in a botanical garden and in the end... More

This is a wonderful 'oasis' in the middle of a Birmingham suburb. A super house to explore and to learn the history of one of the city's industrial families, together with a beautiful garden. The hothouses are lovely, as are all the little gardens arranged to make it fun to explore. There is a nice cafe with outdoor seating as... More

The house and gardens are exquisite . The house takes you back in time and the gardens are a relatively unknown gem.

A delightful place to visit, my teenage children ask to visit. We always say how much we would like to live there. The gardens are beautiful at anytime of the year. The tearoom and terrace are very pleasant. Excellent events organised in the gardens. The rooms give a fascinating insight into the lives of the family. Winterbourne is a great... More

The house is wonderful. Corridors and rooms are light and spacious, with lovely views. Several of us would have liked to live there. There are attractive gardens to wander round, including a walled garden and greenhouses. There is also a peaceful lake to visit. The cafe sells good, tasty food, and ice creams are purchaseable from the shop. You can... More
