A display in the garden room of Stourhead's shop

As one of the National Trust's largest shops, Stourhead has a full range of home accessories, kitchen ware, books, greetings cards, clothing accessories and food. As well as plenty to help you enjoy the great outdoors - from walking to gardening. Whether it’s a gift or a treat for yourself, you’ll find lots to choose from.

Our home collections

The Estuary collection is inspired by sandbanks, rippling waters and estuary marshes of West Wittering, Blakeney Point and Ringstead Bay – just some of the many miles of coastline which is cared for by the National Trust.

Bring a little of the outdoors inside this spring and brighten up your kitchen and home with the new Kitchen Garden range. Kitchen Garden is inspired by out of town green spaces like traditional kitchen gardens, medicinal herb borders and community allotments.

In the Plant Centre

Our shop offers a great range of products and gifts, stocking everything from gardening tools to outdoor furniture and decorations. We have a large selection of locally grown, peat free plants for sale, many of which are growing on the Stourhead estate, so you can create your own little bit of Stourhead at home.

Today we still have over 60 varieties of pelargoniums at Stourhead

Pelargoniums

Pelargoniums are an important part of the history of Stourhead. Family member Sir Richard Colt Hoare (1758-1838) was an important collector and a pioneer of early hybridisation of pelargoniums.

By 1820 his collection contained 600 varieties, it was housed in an impressive conservatory on the South West end of the house.

Today, pelargoniums are on show in the long greenhouse in the walled garden, and some varieties are available to buy in our shop.
