The garden

Stourhead Estate was designed in the 1740's by Henry the Magnificent. It is made up of 2,650 acres of eighteen century landscape garden, a Palladian Mansion, prehistoric parkland, farmland and ancient woodland.


Today, the Estate belongs to the National Trust and has around 350,000 people visiting the garden, house and countryside every year.
