Put on your walking boots and experience Stourhead's diverse countryside. You may see daffodils, bluebells and birds in Spring and orchids and butterflies in Summer. You'll walk through ancient woodlands, across historic parkland and over chalk downs, encountering Iron Age hillforts and follies along the way. Your guide will share how the estate has been managed in the past and how we look after these special areas for people and wildlife today.
