Restored to its Edwardian Arts and Craft splendour, Winterbourne House is a unique heritage attraction – set within seven acres of beautiful botanic gardens. Only minutes from Birmingham city centre, Winterbourne is a hidden gem – home to beautiful antiques and over 6,000 plant species from around the world. Wander along the woodland walk, stroll through the hazelnut tunnel, cross the 1930’s Japanese Bridge or simply soak up the tranquillity of this perfectly English Edwardian home.

The house was a real surprise to us. If felt as if the family who owed it might walk round the corner at any time. So atmospheric. Beautifully kept. A real treat.

An arts and crafts country residence in an urban setting with original outbuildings tastefully adapted into a printworks, cafe and sculpture centre. The building tells a story of its owner in a fascinating way; I've never seen such engaging display techniques before. Walled kitchen garden...More

I go here on a monthly basis because it's beautiful and the coffee is great! I'm a student at the university so admission is free which is a bonus. Always bring a camera to get some great pictures of the gardens!
