Whoever supervised the decoration of the house interior got it spot on. The Wm Morris design on curtains and wallpaper set off the (many) open rooms, where one was free to explore largely unhindered by restrictions. The house was presented as a re-creation, but none the worse for that. It is a fine example of life when the Nettlefolds lived... More

Never before have I been so enthralled by botany. A great place to take a Tinder or OK Cupid date as the bountiful surroundings act as a distraction from the existential despair of dating. Great cafe with a wide range of teas, coffees, cakes and snacks with which to comfort eat your cares away. Not to be Woolly about it,... More

Great little place to come for a walk and admire the beautiful gardens. Possible detour to a large lake at the back, where you would scarcely think you were in Brum. Excellent tea room with super cakes! We are now members.

There is no other way to describe Winterbourne - it is simply beautiful. Sit and have tea on the terraces, stroll round the gardens or learn about the Nettlefold family - you will find something you thoroughly enjoy.

Winterbourne is a hidden jewel within the Birmingham University campus. The gardens are beautiful even in the middle of winter, the cafe' is good and the house hosts a fantastic exhibition on the family history and history of the house. Don't miss it!
