Location --THE GROTTO

Stourhead Lake

The most beautiful place ,for photographers !

 

Grottos were popular in Italian Renaissance gardens as places of retreat from summer heat. In the summer of 1762 Henry Hoare recorded his enjoyment, cooling off here. Stourhead’s Grotto is a circular, domed chamber built to resemble a cave.

Henry Hoare II’s ambition was to make Stourhead an unsurpassable place. This saw the installation of spectacular garden features, from a medieval cross and classical temples to a cosy cottage and modern ice house.
