Hire a venue at Stourhead

An garden picnic at sunset

You can now hire the house, a temple or an island in the lake for your personal use. Whether it's a reception for 50, a candle-lit dinner in the Gothic Cottage, a supper in the Temple of Apollo or a drinks party by the lake or the Temple of Flora, we're here to help you make it possible.

Supper in the Gothic Cottage

The gardens offer a silent calm, with the lake at the centre of a stroll past temples and grottoes. The surprise destination: a stone cottage with just one simple room, lit by a roaring fire and candlelight ready for your mouth-watering supper.
 
The Gothic Cottage can cater for up to 12 guests.
 

Dinner in the Temple of Apollo

A supper party among the columns of this classical temple dedicated to the sun god. Take the grand tour of the lake first, pausing in the Gothic Cottage for a glass of champagne before enjoying a feast fit for the gods. This is the stuff of dreams, and it can be yours for a night.
 
The Temple of Apollo can cater for up to 20 guests.
 

A picnic on the lake

Enjoy a picnic on the lake for up to 10 people, surrounded by temples and wonderful vistas. Here a banquet awaits: an elaborate picnic with the pop of champagne corks while swans glide across the water. It's a picnic like no other.
