We're so lucky to have Stourhead on our doorstep. As you can see from these photos, the gardens and grounds are a jewel in the National Trust crown.
A visit to Stourhead makes a great day trip, especially when you settle in after a pipe-opening walk, into a cosy meal or pint of ale at the Spreadeagle Pub.
There's also a fantastic farm shop on the grounds as well. Their cheese, bacon and sausages are particularly good.
