Winterbourne House and gardens are such a delight! I visited recently with my daughter and the whole experience is top class. The house, is a fine example of arts and crafts in it's heyday.... tastefully restored without the stuffiness of some properties. Really interesting details of the Nettlefolds family history. The gardens are equally stunning. A lovely place to spend... More

The garden is gorgeous here with a real 'secret garden' feel and the cafe serves very nice earthy food.

What a nice surprise such a well kept garden though not large but with a new vista at every turn. Information boards are good, and the mix of plants remarkable. Greenhouses although small are well kept and should not be missed. The house is interesting mainly because of its occupants and the stories are interesting. Perhaps a little bit more... More

Set in the middle of Birmingham City University, and owned by them, the house has been excellently restored to it's former glory. It was owned by the Nettlefolds who invented the household screw, and it a lovely example of an Arts and Crafts house. There is a lot of history about the family, and we found it all really interesting.... More

We were hosting a very close friend for the weekend and wanted to go somewhere thus far unknown to us, particularly as this friend loves gardens. What a great selection, fabulous gardens , varied and intereting throughout, beautiful setting, and a wonderful historic arts & crafts house to explore. To round off a lovely afternoon, tea on the sun drenched... More

This lovely botanical garden is a wonderful place to stroll, and it seems quite undiscovered. In addition to the gardens, the house is a really interesting slice of history regarding the life of a prominent Birmingham turn of the century industrialist - and it features a nice lunchroom with an outdoor terrace for sunny days (yes, they do occasionally happen...

We visited the garden on our RHS trips start of the level 4 course. We got the warmest welcome here with a cup of tea and biscuits! The garden itself was expertly managed with delightful and interesting displays. In keeping with the arts and crafts theme the garden is well planted and research goes into areas that are re-planted. The... More
