Notes to Editors
 
About Stourhead

Stourhead is a Palladian house and world-famous landscape garden. When it first opened in the 1740s, a magazine described it as ‘a living work of art’. The world-famous landscape garden has at its centrepiece a magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare and exotic trees, and offers a day of adventure.
The history of Stourhead can be uncovered in the house with its unique Regency library, Chippendale furniture and inspirational paintings.
 
The Palladian house is set amid ‘picnic perfect’ lawns and extensive parkland (2,650 acres), where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for wildlife.
