Christmas comes to Stourhead
See the family home decorated beautifully for the 2017 festive season, or wrap up warm and enjoy a stroll through the garden and see the foundations and the beauty of Stourhead.
More of Stourhead has been decorated than ever, with festive decorations across the whole property, welcoming you from as soon as you step into visitor reception. There’s 20 trees which are beautifully decorated across the property, over 50 wreaths to adorn doors and swags to help lead you on your journey around Stourhead.
On arrival in the house, you will be welcomed with a roaring log fire, and once warm you can explore the decorated showrooms of the family home, each with their own traditional theme, telling a different stage in the lives of Alda, Henry and Harry Hoare. Throughout the house you will find handmade decorations and wonderful floral arrangements, created for you by our talented volunteers.
A walk around the winter garden offers tranquillity and festive cheer, with many of the garden buildings adorned with wreaths and festive decorations. In the winter, the foundations of the garden are laid bare, and it offers a glimpse at how this world-famous landscape garden was created.
In the Gothic Cottage a log fire may be waiting for you, helping to warm up any cold fingers and toes, you may even find a warming hot drink is available to help you continue on your journey around the lake.
A visit this Christmas isn’t complete without popping into the shop and seeing the great selection of gifts on offer, and trying our range of festive food in the restaurant such as the festive favourite gingerbread latte.
