The jewel in the Stourhead crown has to be the world-famous 18th-century landscape garden. A magnificent lake shimmering with reflections of classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare and exotic trees. Secrets of the Hoare family history are revealed at Stourhead House (orginally the family holiday home!).
You can enjoy a volunteer led tour or explore the chance to discover the unique Regency library, collections of Chippendale furniture and inspirational paintings, all set amid 'picnic perfect' lawns and parkland. The lake and house are at the heart of a 1,072-hectare (2,650-acre) estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for people and wildlife to enjoy.
Families can collect tracker packs to make it more fun for the kids plus there are free quizzes and trails aimed at kids too. And as well as the pub and restaurant on site there's also an ice cream parlour, so you can just pick one of those up to compliment the picnic if you prefer to stay outside!
It's also worth noting that groups and birthday parties can book a tree climbing experience with equipment and a friendly experienced tutor. What a great way to end a birthday party for your little monkeys: up in the trees!
