We travelled to this beautiful fine example of a palacial Edwardian home and gardens on the outskirts of Birmingham on a nice sunny day. We were not disappointed with what we found to see. We noted that the house was beautifully presented with wheelchair lift access to the upper floor. It has many interesting items to view with showing how... More

We were a group of older people some not as good on their feet as they once were. The gardener who led us round the garden assessed our needs exactly which resulted in an excellently judged tour of the gardens at the right pace. The chef provided an excellent lunch. All in all we had a very enjoyable visit.

A real shock to find such a lovely spot in Edgbaston. We particularly liked the enormous, beautiful gardens. I am in a wheelchair and it is normally a nightmare for the rest of my family trying to push me. The paths are amazing and it is by far the best garden that we have visited. The house was very interesting... More

We went to Winterborne in the holidays on a day that started off with awful weather, and didn't expect much. If you haven't been as I hadn't, but my husband had, you're going to be pleasantly surprised. If like him you've not been in a while the changes are significant. You can look through the varied gardens at your leisure.... More

Took visiting family around the Winterbourne House and Garden and wasn't disappointed. Beautiful house and gardens all set and recreated as would have been once lived in. Very well done and more to see than anticipated. Will return in the summer to see the gardens at their best!

This is a most interesting place to visit. The lifestyle of a philanthropic, wealthy family is showcased in this beautifully presented house and garden . The house is lovely -and the furnishings are great. The garden woodland walk is a joy -especially with the bluebells out . The staff were great , and the little second hand bookshop is a... More

This place is really worth a visit. The house itself is beautiful but the real attraction is the garden (you can't believe how close you are to all the hustle of Birmingham). Look out for events during the summer months, they tend to have Jazz etc. in the garden. Tip - free to Birmingham Uni students.

Lovely stroll around the gardens followed by a delicious lunch on the terrace. Didn't have time to do the house but will return.
