When Stourhead first opened in the 1740s, a magazine described it as ‘a living work of art’. A unique Palladian mansion it has a world-famous landscape garden complete with a magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare and exotic trees. The Hoare family (who were also previous owners of Durslade Farm, the site in which Hauser & Wirth Somerset is located) history can be uncovered in Stourhead House, which features a Regency library and fabulous collections of Chippendale furniture and paintings, all set amid delightful lawns, parkland and a 1,072-hectare nature conservation estate.
