(4.6/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Discover the world-famous Stourhead House and Garden, described as a "living work of art" when it first opened in the 1740s. This sprawling estate, covering over 1,000 hectares (2,600 acres), shelters a variety of native wildlife and includes a Palladian mansion, farmland, woodland, and a renowned garden. Inspired by the paintings representing Utopian-style views of Italian landscapes, the garden was laid out around a large artificial lake. A number of temples are spread throughout the garden, including the temple of Apollo, which provides an ideal vantage point for surveying the estate’s large collection of trees, shrubs, and flowers from around the world.

  • I stayed for the 1 night with my dog in July, 2015. We had the en-suite double room which was very spacious and had a beautiful bathroom with a scented candle lit on arrival (lovely touch). The bed was heavenly with soft pillows and it was all very peaceful. Sally was very welcoming and communication through the booking process to arrival was excellent. It was nice we had access to the sink in the cottage kitchen to wash up the dog bowl and for cold soft drinks in the fridge, as well as fresh milk for coffee. Breakfast is served in the 'Spreadeagle inn' just across the road. Unfortunately dogs are NOT permitted inside at all, all year round. Being on my own, this proved a little bit of a dilemma as it was too cold and wet to eat outside and I couldn't trust my dog in the room on his own as he would bark and become distressed since it is a strange place for him. This was the case for an evening meal aswell. For the evening, I went to a dog friendly pub a few miles away which was nice and fortunately, for breakfast, Sally saw me walking around in the morning with my dog and offered to have Basil, my dog with her in the back garden while I was having breakfast. I much appreciated this kind gesture. It's perfect for a quiet, special retreat in such beautiful grounds. One little niggle...the kettle was not situated near any plug socket. Maybe a table of some sort near a plug socket for the kettle and tea/coffee making facilities will make more sense. It is on the higher end of the price scale for a b and b, but worth it with the service, the breakfast and comfort of our stay as a special treat. Thankyou so much Sally for making our stay a very comfortable one. Good luck with it. Natalia and Basil
