Explore Stourhead House and Gardens

Stourhead is a fine example of English landscape gardens from the 18th century, re-planted in the 19th century with Conifers, flowering trees and shrubs. Follow a route anti-clockwise around the lake to gradually experience the sequence of arcadian images. There is always another vision to attract the eye: the Temple of Flora, Temple of Apollo, rock bridge or a Gothic rustic cottage and grotto to name but a few. From the late 1700s new plants were introduced - Rhododendrons, scented Azaleas, Copper Beeches and Conifers. In the early 19th century Stourhead housed one of the best collections of Pelargoniums in the world, with over 600 varieties.

Stourhead also has a Historic House:

Ten of the Best Autumnal Gardens by Veronica Peerless

"When the North American maple turns scarlet at Stourhead, it heralds the fact that autumn is on its way. Japanese acers, chestnuts, cypress and redwoods soon join the autumnal throng, and their sumptuous colours are reflected in the central lake. As the leaves fall, dramatic vistas open up and you can appreciate the incredibly clever design of this magnificent landscape garden."
