We stopped here to meet up with family. We had a good lunch in the restaurant followed by a lovely walk around the lake. The food was decent, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the gardens were beautiful with plenty to keep the children entertained.

What a fantastic place. I've wanted to go here for ages and finally made it today. We arrived early, 9.30, to walk the dogs before everyone else arrived. We were so glad we did.

Never get tired of visiting these magnificent gardens and lakes. Lose yourself in the magic of Jane Austen. Used so many times in period tv and film dramas. Delightful any time of the year.

You can spend a few good hours exploring the full garden around the lake, it is stunning. The house for us was not the highlight of our visit (and it paled in comparison to the Longleat House!) although the NT guides were brilliant in showing us around.

Although I visit here regularly I am always recharged by the visit. There is something different to see each time - I particularly enjoy parking some distance away and then walking in to the park from different directions. It is especially lovely when quiet, which is admitedly not that often.

These Stourhead Gardens are spectacular virtually all the year round, and superbly managed. We walk there most mornings all the year round, and never tire of the changing foliage colours and birdlife
