It is a lovely walk with beautiful flowers and all the trees are marked so that you can read about each tree. The lake is amazing and the wildlife plentiful.

My wife and I took two friends to visit this lovely place. The scenery is absolutely stunning. The house is very interesting and the staff were very informative. Walk all the way around the lake and take in the beautiful scenery.

That's a hard question to answer not knowing which part of London you are coming from. However Stourhead is near Warminster in Wiltshire so generally you need to take the M3 and then A350 to Warminster - it's around 90 miles... More
