  • A wonderful day out with family. We spent the whole day wandering in the gardens which are beautiful and a picnic in the sunshine (very lucky with the weather). Extensive landscape gardens with paths, borders, lakes, mature trees and lawns. Some interesting features dotted about the place - follies, bridges, etc - great stuff. I went with family which included my 3 year old nephew and he had a lovely day. Golf buggies are available for those with limited walking.
  • A truly beautiful gardens, brilliant any season. Many follies in the grounds, which are well kept. Plenty of different walking opportunities. Lovely restaurant and shop, opportunity to buy plants and garden furniture etc. You can look around the old Inn and Stowe School (extra charge for this). Fun for the whole family.
  • Lovely gardens for a spring/summer walk & picnic. Not too commercialised except for the entrance, so not much in terms of toilet facilities and cafes. Great day out.
  • Great for a relaxing walk in fabulous surrounding countryside. A bit disappointed the house was closed to the public due to a private function! Never mind, that means another trip will have to be planned :)
  • Lovely Gardens and a great walk. Wheelchairs get sent the long way round at the moment due to unserviceable lift but overall a great place. Cafe in particular is very nice (modern).
