lovely house and garden

Really nice garden and cafe - I'd go to the cafe more often if it weren't for the fact that one has to pay for garden entrance even if only visiting the cafe

I visited Winterbourne botanical gardens for the first time in a long time, and it is looking terrific. They have done a lot of work since my last trip - the various hot houses are wonderful, orchids, arid house for succulents, carnivorous plants ... The sun was shining, the walk down to the lake was lovely, the grounds look terrific.... More

I visit Winterbourne when I need a little time away from the hussle and bustle and it's the perfect place for a quiet wander or a peaceful half-hour enjoying the greenery.

Just off the edge of Birmingham University campus, Winterbourne House and Gardens is a hidden gem which is well worth a visit. If you like William Morris / Arts and Crafts houses then this is a must see attraction. There is more inside to see than you might expect from the outside. The entire house was completely restored a few... More

The weather was beautiful and the trees were magnificent. So many families out enjoying this well kept garden and the food on the terrace was served well in a lovely setting. The house was very interesting and I would take visitors there for certain.

The house has been tastefully restored & is full of interest for anyone who's into the Arts & Crafts Movement - lots of William Morris fabrics & wallpaper as well as furniture of the era. It seems like a real family home & in fact was loved by the three families who lived there before it became part of the... More

Dear Bobblenose Firstly, thanks so much for the lovely review and we're really pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit so much. We do apologise about the hot chocolate: it's usually frothy and very chocolatey so it sounds like the machine may have been running low on powder. We're sorry that that wasn't picked up on and that you didn't... More

Beautiful gardens with Japanese features; there is an stunning variety of trees, shrubs and flowers as well as a reservoir! The House is well worth a visit and holds lots of historical information & has preserved the decor, furniture and clothing of times past. The tea room has a welcome choice of snacks and hot and cold drinks, but the... More
