We had lunch at the Spread Eagle Inn before we started our walk around the grounds. Good sized potions, especially the Ploughman's. Only criticism is the bread wasn't as fresh as it could have been. We had a lovely leisurely walk around the gardens and...More

This is a beautiful place to visit. We didn't expect it to be so big and interesting. You could just take a picnic and relax. Well worth a visit.

Visited here whilst travelling through Wiltshire recently. The house is beautiful and the grounds with its lakeside walk has to be one of the most stunning in England. Classical temples, all manner of flora and fauna and utterly stunning views are all features that surround...More

That's a hard question to answer not knowing which part of London you are coming from. However Stourhead is near Warminster in Wiltshire so generally you need to take the M3 and then A350 to Warminster - it's around 90 miles... More
