Unfortunately the day we visited we had torrential rain all day, so we did not get the chance to explore the gardens as we would have liked. However, we did enjoy our visit and the staff were really friendly and accommodating and very willing to answer questions. The grounds are stunning and we will definitely return in better weather for... More

Stunning gardens that make for a lovely walk around the lake. Lovely pub serving some good ales and good food too. Perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday

Visited during school half term holidays but was not too busy - I'm guessing from previous visits to the area that it gets much much busier. Got a warm welcome from National Trust staff and ended up joining as loved walking round the grounds - didn't see the house so planning a return visit. Was advised that if we brought... More

We have been to the house before, but didn't have time to see the gardens and so that is all we visited this time. As we were visiting in August, Stourhead I believe is at it's best in Spring and Autumn, there was not a lot of colour in terms of trees or flowers. There are large numbers of camelias,... More

I'm glad I went, as I've been meaning to go for years. Gardens and out buildings were wonderful. Breathtaking landscaping. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice food. Thing is, it's so NationalTrustified it's bordering on sterile. I was left wondering why I spent so much time in the house - although I get the story idea that's prevalent in a... More

The National Trust do a great job keeping treasures like Stourhead accessible and enjoyable for so many. The house guides were helpful and informative, and brilliant with children. The gardens were uplifting. The amenities well run on a busy day.

Have been going to Stourhead off and on for forty years, and this was my first return in ten years. We went fairly early in the day - probably wise during the school holidays. Some of the vistas have been opened up and most of this was successful, though it does remove some of the surprises. The walk around the... More

We just love this garden and have visited many times over the years. It doesn't matter what time of year you come as there is always something to see. This visit we went into the house which we haven't done before and it was really interesting.

One of our most favourite places to visit. We go often and both of my little ones love the freedom of running around the gardens. We can recommend both the ice creams and the cream teas! The house is beautiful but we tend to stick the the outstanding gardens as toddlers want to touch everything in the house! I love... More
