I have always wanted to visit Stourhead and my opportunity came during this month, August. I was really excited and my expectations were not disappointed. This is one of the most idyllic and glorious sites on the planet. It is hard to believe that this beautiful landscape paradise was put together by a man with no horticultural experience at all,...

A warm Sunday morning walk around the lake was just the ticket. Very relaxing with lots of nooks and crannies to investigate. A visit to the house after this was very thought provoking. At all times there were many knowledgeable members of staff to answer extra questions. We then went on a walk to King Alfreds tower.... quite a way... More

Had a lovely day at this National Trust property. Started with the garden tour which gave us an insight to the history of the property. Then went on with a walk round the lake. All very beautiful. At one end of the lake is the village where one may indulge in a fine pub lunch. Then on to the house.... More

I visited Stourhead in May but I forgot to include a review. First let me say as lovely as the house is the gardens are something else. This is a post Civil War house and in style reminded me of Stowe in Buckinghamshire which I know well. On the day I arrived I must have forgotten my National Trust card... More

This is a beautiful place to enjoy nature and breathtaking scenery. If you enjoy picnics, this is a great place to have one. Make sure to tour the house while there. It's truly a spectacular home. The trails are well paved and you can spend hours exploring the plant and animal life. Worth the trip and I highly recommend it.

We went to Stourhead on the way to my Brothers and was not disappointed. Great house great gardens, you would expect nothing else from the National Trust. What I would expect is a little more signage in the garden, it needs more signs to guide you round and directions to the toilets. We were lucky we met a guide and... More

We visited Stourhead in early August on a reasonably sunny day,The staff were very helpful on arrival and talked us through the best route around the gardens. The scenery can best be described as breath taking,with many hidden gems such as the grotto.The gardens are so large that at no point was it crowded and even though we visited in... More

Fabulous house full of a beautiful collection of very special paintings and stunning furniture.The Guides were very informative and you could see their passion that they held for the place. So interesting, lots of information placed at every corner making it easy for you to get to know the family and how they overcame the fire and how they rebuilt... More

Another fantastic NT property. The house is very interesting, but the surrounding grounds are exquisite, and a great place for family picnics. They even have their own pubs within the grounds, which offer lovely meals and good ales. A great walk around the lake, laze in the sunshine, eat a picnic - what more could you want. They have probably... More
