“Favourite national trust property so far.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

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 the summer holidays it was quiet and peaceful.

The only slight downside was with the quality of the food on offer in the onsite cafe,the lemon drizzle cake was so dry and powdery you needed a cup of tea to wash it down.

We would definitely recommend a visit to Stourhead and will return again when in the area.

“Fantastic House , Beautiful Gardens.”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

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 the estate so beautifully. Free admission of course for National Trust members, makes a lovely day out, we are going back to do the garden. !

“On A Sunny Day A Great Family Day Out”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

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 got one of the best selections of galleries/shops that we have seen on an NT property

“Beautiful National Trust Gardens”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We have explored these gardens on numerous occasions over the years with our 3 children. It's a fantastic place with friendly staff and delicious ice cream! There are woodlands, lakes, swans, geese, a grotto and other interesting buildings around the grounds. There is a pub on site for meals as well as the National Trust restaurant…just be aware that there are no toilets unless you are at the beginning or end of your walk! The children love it here…and the bonus is that it's free for National Trust members. We haven't yet found time to visit the house!
