Fabulous gardens. The Walled garden gives way to parkland gardens and a huge rockery. The house itself has been beautifully restored and with the historical vignettes gives glimpses of a bygone age. Overall, a beautiful place to spend an afternoon.

Having joined the HHA in May my wife and I decided to visit Winterbourne House as we had forgotten till now (always the same when it's local) and found it well worth the time. The house was built in 1903 for John and Margaret Nettleford (of GKN) and the last owner John MacDonald Nicolson (a keen gardener) who died in... More

This house has an interesting garden which has easy walking, Seasonal displays like wood turning and printing. The house is interesting being the Nettlefold family house. Learn about J Nettlefold's pioneering work in housing. Enjoy some refreshment in the onsite restaurant.

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
