Stourhead Gardens in Autumn. A spectacular time to visit the beautiful landscape at Stourhead Gardens, near Mere in Wiltshire. When there will be a “firework” display of magnificent Autumn colours.
So pack your wellies and enjoy some invigorating fresh air and the gorgeous colour of the trees and shiny conkers as autumn arrives. The guided walks are always a worthwhile treat, see the Gothic Cottage where a fire is lit and you can enjoy a hearty snack in the restaurant.
Stourhead first opened in the 1740s and the world-famous landscape garden is centred on the magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare and exotic trees.
Also visit Stourhead house with an Italian ‘Grand Tour’ adventure and enjoy the unique Regency library, Chippendale furniture and inspirational paintings. The Palladian mansion is set amid perfect lawns and extensive parkland.
Explore the 2,650 acre Stourhead estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for wildlife.
