Stourhead is a 2,650 acre estate, whose picturesque landscape garden has been described as ‘a living work of art’. Plenty of wildlife roam the ancient woods nearby, where glorious bluebells steal the show come spring.
This walk passes through ancient woodland where there are plenty of flowers to see, especially in the spring when the bluebells are out, and meanders into a hay field which is full of oxeye daisies in May and June.
The Kingston Lacy estate is one of the most popular areas in the county to see bluebells each spring. Find out more about the best places to spot them when they are at their best from mid to late April.
Godolphin is rich in archaeology and wildlife. The sixteenth-century garden is one of the most important historic gardens in Europe. The tranquil and mysterious woodland, where the years of mining have left an unnatural undulating landscape, is carpeted in bluebells throughout April and May.
