  • Very pleasant. Lots of places to take a stroll (or a buggy if you don't fancy the walk!). We had to cut our visit short as it was much larger than we thought it was. Give yourself a good few hours to enjoy it all.
  • Excellent day out with extensive gardens with great views. Good walks with loads of interesting sculptures and folly buildings. Admission is expensive but worth it if you make at least a half day visit - bring a picnic! Restaurant and shop near the entrance and a tea / coffee shop at the far end of the gardens. Dog and wheelchair friendly. A free golf cart shuttle runs from the entrance to the park (about 5-500 metres) during busy times. Stowe will also lay on golf buggy tours of the gardens for people with mobility issues - check availability in advance.
  • Lovely large gardens with lots of unusual buildings and statues to see. Wear comfortable shoes. The guided tours (NT) are interesting and reveal lots of hidden meanings behind the gardens you would other wise miss. Pick a nice sunny day if you can.
  • The gardens are good however it gets very busy now so not a quiet stroll more of a conveyor belt of people. Food is disappointing and service is generally very slow.
  • Beautiful, well kept garden. Great day out for the either couples or a family. Dog friendly too (ground only).
