We took our 4 year old granddaughter to visit this delightful house. It is an absolute gem of a place. It has been furnished and decorated in the style of a pre First World War house and is beautiful. How I would love to live in its light airy rooms! The granddaughter loved the period dresses and enjoyed dressing up... More

A friend introduced me to this little gem and we had a fabulous lazy day enjoying the grounds and the house. We also enjoyed a very relaxed excellent brunch then afternoon tea on the terrace. Considering it was the school holidays it was extremely quiet. The gardens are interesting though the house is more so. Unsure why this location is... More

I live in Birmingham and hadn't been to Winterbourne until we visited for an Instameet. I was really taken by it. The gardens are gorgeous but it was the family that really grabbed me. You can walk through the house and read all about the Nettlefold family. You can feel the love and personalities of the family....it stayed with me... More

There is much to see, although the garden is not particularly large. it belongs to an interesting Arts and Crafts house in Edgbaston.

Conveniently situated in Uni of Birmingham campus site, this is a little gem. Not an enormous property, but many different gardens, all very well kept. Edgbaston Pool is also a lovely sight. Space for picnics or tea room on site.

Went with my sister for my birthday treat. Both house and gardens are well worth the visit - lots of different garden areas to walk around and an abundance of interesting flowers and plants. Some nice gifts in the shop and plants to buy too. Tearooms fine for a quick lunch or snack but very basic menu. If known would... More

Visited the house and gardens with a friend, such beautiful gardens really well looked after and so much to see from the glasshouses to the formal beds. The arts and crafts house had a lovely warm happy feel to it, so calm. Hard to think its a stones throw Birmingham city centre. The tea room are really good value, I... More

Came here with my mother and sister and absolutely loved it! The gardens are breathtaking - beautifully kept and such an array of styles, from well kept lawns to over grown wilderness and a gorgeous little over grown tunnel it's definitely worth a visit. It rained lightly when we were there and it didn't ruin it at all, in fact... More
