“Beautiful scenery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

A beautiful place with amazing views. A great day out especially on great sunny days like today. A geat place for nature lovers & bird watchers. Has a cafe & shop which I think is a good idea especially families. Staff were very friendly. An amazing place for anytime of year as there will be different plants to be seen all year round. So quiet & relaxing. I'd recommend a visit to everyone with this interest & also great for school & people in education.
Will be back

“Wow!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

We wanted a day out close to our home in Wolverhampton. A visit to a garden didn't seem the best idea on a grey, showery day but this place is wonderful. It's amazing what volunteers have achieved in 30 years converting a wild overgrown area back to the walled garden it had been. It has a great variety of plants (all authentic to the period of the house in its heyday), different planting areas and is wonderfully cared for. The tea shop is very nice, the ladies very pleasant, and the guided tour - just for the two of us- very helpful to learn why the garden is here before exploring on our own. And we got into the church which is very interesting, and we had very nice coffee in the hotel next door. A perfect day out. Thanks to all.

A fascinating place to visit Very well maintained by volunteers who are only too happy to share their knowledge of the gardens and plants.
We visited on a day they are usually closed but they were quite happy to let us wander around the gardens and enjoy them

“The Secret Garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

When I read the secret garden I thought walled gardens didn't exist anymore. Thank goodness some of them were preserved! Castle Bromwich Hall gardens are a lovely get away just off Junction 6 on the M6 (Yes the infamous Spaghetti Junction) This lovely English Baroque Garden opened to show of their snow drops and Hellbores which both looked lovely. Can't wait to go back in late spring to see all the trained fruit trees spring to life. Full private nooks and crannies and a lovely (but spikey) little Holly maze too. Also enjoyed the annual talk on snowdrops given by Chris the head gardener! Only a few quid to get in, talk was included. Also impressed by the displays and the extremely welcoming and helpful volunteers. Great job guys!

“Hedges, History and Remarkable Volunteers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Castle Brumwich Hall gardens has long been a family favorite. This remarkable gardens with its coffee shop is run almost entirely by volunteers who want this histoic jewel to be kept alive.

Various times of year bring an array of seasonal flowers, with our most recent visit being on their Autumn Apple Day festival. Check their web site for other events but this one runs every October and features apple based games for the kids, apple goods to buy and an array of fruit and veg for sale grown right there inthe gardens. You can see displays showing varieties of fruit and potatoes that no supermarket ever offered.

The coffee shop offers teas, coffees and cakes and there are often books, cards etc for sale. All proceeds go to help keep up the gardens and if you need somewhere to unload those pennies they have a penny appeal as well.
