Fascinating family history in an Arts and Crafts house with lots of William Morris fabrics and wallpapers. Superb and very varied gardens, with Japenese bridge, ponds, streams and link to woodland and very large pool. Cafe has good choice of jacket potatoes, soups, sandwiches and daily special. Home made cakes and trad afternoon tea as well. Great cuppa, lovely friendly... More

What a hidden gem not far from Birmingham city centre. Beautifully kept gardens, interesting house, tea rooms, what more could you want? Garden is mainly on the level with lots of benches for a sit down. A walk through the woods to Edgaston Pool is worth it. Can see us visiting each season of the year to enjoy the changes.

It's difficult to believe the house and gardens are so close to the city centre. Not so large as the botanical gardens but full of interest and access to the large lake on the edge of Edgbaston golf course. The setting for lunch/tea on the terrace is great but food quality/service could be improved. It's adequate but not as good... More

Have been visiting Winterbourne for several years with young family and never tire or it, love it in all seasons. Often take a picnic and eat in the shelters if it's raining. Love the café too. A great place to visit

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
