A Stroll around Stourhead House and Gardens

Work is extremely busy at the moment but I was able to escape for the day and enjoyed a walk around Stourhead House and Gardens.

The house has a lovely collection of Grand Tour souvenirs and a diverse art collection. As always, I found plenty of costume inspiration from the paintings.

I particularly enjoyed the '18th Century' walk around the gardens. The walk takes you around the lake and you can visit temples and a grotto on the route. Stourhead gardens offers a unique view of a preserved 18th Century landscape.
