Stourhead is a National Trust property in the South Western extremity of Wiltshire.
Created in the 1740s by William Hoare, a banker, Stourhead contains a large lake, a Temple of Apollo, a Grotto, a Palladian bridge and many other features. Looking at the sensational views across this garden is exactly like standing in a landscape painting by the French romantic painter, Claude Lorraine.
