Interesting if you are into houses and gardens location makes it a little unusual access best by public transport if you are staying in town

I went here with a family group ranging in age from late teens to mid-sixty and we all had a really lovely afternoon. The gardens are spectacular, not as extensive as the Botanical Gardens up the road but just enough to walk around and the gardens have been divided up really well. There were lots of places to sit in... More

Visited here while my son looked round the university. Wonderful arts and crafts house, with beautiful, intriguing gardens which are full of all sorts of twists and turns and interested me greatly, despite my gardening ignorance! Nice cafe too!

Recently opened to the public, this deceptively large Edwardian house on the Edgbaston campus of Birmingham University is worth visiting. It has extensive grounds and is family friendly.

An absolutely delightful place. As a gardening group the gardens were of prime interest but the house certainly added to it being a wonderful place to visit. We had an excellent guided tour of the grounds lead by Leanne who was so friendly and informative and was ready and able to answer any questions we asked her.The tea room was... More

Fantastic gardens, house and tea room. Lovely staff and a great little gift shop. We have been round the gardens many times with the students from school who loved it.

Wonderful well kept garden full of roses and peonies with the bees buzzing round the nepeta. Just beautiful. Very interesting house with lots of information on the people who have lived there. So light and unfussy,typical arts and crafts. Very good cafe with home made food,excellent cake all eaten on a beautiful flower filled terrace. A really lovely day out.

I just spent two days at Winterbourne as part of a mini-conference and what a gorgeous location. The gardens are pristine and beautifully kept and the house is a lovingly maintained gracious old building. I especially loved the children's nursery. Well recommended as a meeting spot and the catering was very pleasant.

I visited winterbourne house for a work meeting to use the conference rooms. These were neat, tidy and functional, with good refreshment facilities. After the meeting, because we had used the facilities, an added bonus was that I was allowed to walk around the gardens of Winterbourne house before leaving. What I planned as a short walk turned out to... More
