Stourhead was described as ‘a living work of art’ when it first opened in the 1740’s. The famous landscape garden with its rare and beautiful trees is dotted with mystical grottoes and temples and built around a beautiful lake. The reflections in the calm waters on a still day are a magnificent sight. In the spring the rhododendrons and azaleas burst into bloom and the autumn colours at Stourhead are justly famous.
Stourhead house, boasting a unique Regency library, inspirational works of art and Chippendale furniture is a Palladian mansion set in a fabulous park.
