Winterbourne House

From the 1st May Winterbourne House is now open to the public after being restored to its Edwardian splendour. Winterbourne House and garden is an example of an Edwardian Arts and Crafts property on the University of Birmingham’s Edgbaston Campus, 15 minutes away from the city centre. The house was built for John and Margaret Nettlefold in 1903. The house sits in seven acres of attractive Arts & Crafts gardens designed by Margaret Nettleford who was inspired by the books and garden designs of Gertrude Jekyll. The gardens are Grade II listed and are home to plants from around the world, a hazelnut tunnel, 1930’s Japanese bridge and tea house.

Winterbourne House is open from 10am – 6pm. More details can be found at www.winterbourne.org.uk
