Stourhead is a National Trust property and is an absolutely stunning garden at any time of the year but on a crisp sunny October morning it was really beautiful.
Round every corner another lovely scene
After lunch we took a look round the house - no photographs allowed inside - which was interesting and which we hadn't seen before. Imagine living here and having the carriages arriving up this splendid driveway! No I don't think I would like that at all - I'd have to be in my best finery and not mucking about in my comfy stuff playing about in the garden wouldn't I?!
Finally a cup of tea in the cafe and a look round the farm shop before we left having enjoyed a wonderful day. We were so glad we had gone in the morning though as by the time we left the place was heaving with visitors and it wouldn't have been nearly so enjoyable sharing it with so many others.
Hope you enjoyed your stroll round.? I will keep some of the other pictures I took for another time as you have probably had enough now!!
