I've been here several times during different seasons and each person I bring is enchanted with this sweet combination of botanic gardens and home. The home has been modernised over the years, but there are plenty of authentic Edwardian features including decor and antiques. What's more, there are many charming touches which reveal what life was like when the Nettlefolds... More

Little is known of this lovely, quant house and gardens. One of South Birmingham's best kept secret. The house, which was once home to the Nettlefold family, was reopened to the public a few years ago. It replicates life of time gone by, whilst taking you on a journey into the lives of the family that lived here and the... More

Visited this morning and was very impressed with both house and the lovely gardens. Excellent value for money and you can actually touch some of the things in the house! Had coffee and cake on the terrace with good views of the gardens - prices in cafe very reasonable. In the house there is a lift for wheelchairs and people... More

Be sure to allow time to enjoy both the house and gardens here. So much too see, lots of different areas, lovely gardens , fantastic plants and incredibly good value. Great tea rooms to enjoy a light lunch or tea and cake! Our group were bowled over by it.

We belong to HHA and so thought we'd swing by and have a look only to be enchanted. Just lovely. Gardens are beautiful, including the woodland walk through the neighbouring Edgbaston Golf Club land to sit by the "pool", which turned out to really be a lake complete with herons. Plenty of seats to sit on and grass to lay... More

This is a sea of tranquility very near to the centre of Birmingham. The house is interesting and the exhibitions are well maintained and often interactive. The gardens are much larger than I imagined and beautifully laid out and maintained. Walking through the grounds is a pleasure with plenty of benches to sit on and admire this wonderful setting.
