Beautiful location

Warm welcome. Site easy to access. We have a reader lounge so overlooked the field rather than the car park which was mainly empty whilst we were in. Some pitches may need blocks to level. Facilities open when NT is open. We walked the footpaths across the fields gave views and shelter. The garden was stunning enjoying it after closing and before opening was worthwhile. Couldn’t be a better spot to see Stour-head. In the corner of the main car park there is a smashing farm shop to say nothing of the on site pub. What more could we ask. More of the same please NT and CMC.

Ssshhhh, Just between you and I

We were only here for one night, The kids, the wife and I,

But time just stopped, and we relaxed as we looked towards the sky.

The rain it came, in bucketloads but it didn't stop the mood,

as at half past ten at night, a walk, we thought, be good.

And in our coats and wellies, we walked around the grounds,

with bats and deer and toads we shared, the forest without sounds.

The pitch was as they say perfect, with everything so neat,

with a welcome, all so friendly, this site is such a treat.

We were there just a while, 24 hours, just one day,

and only £14 for four, there's not much else to say,

It's the perfect place for everyone, yes, even when it's grey.

Thank you to all the staff on Saturday, it would be good to see more collaboration between the C&MH Club and the NT to increase the network across the UK. It would be a positive move for both of you and a fantastic time for your members.

Pretty much perfect!

Great level site tucked in corner of the overflow carpark. Very easy access to the estate and gardens - both of which are beautiful. Excellent for dogs with miles of footpaths at your door. As already stated once the house and gardens are closed tranquilty descends. We shall certainly return to this all year round CL.

Perfect for a short stay

The main draw of this site is it's close proximity to the Stourhead estate and gardens. However there aren't any amazing views from your caravan, just the overflow car park which is a shame because the other side of the hedge has a stunning view for miles. Check in was efficient and friendly prior to pitching (they allocate a pitch number on arrival) Pitches are perfect for a motor home but for a caravan with awning slightly tight, when you are asked not to park on the grass, (hardstanding pitches also could do with weeding). It is lovely to be able to walk around the gardens after the public have gone home and if you are a dog owner you can access them after 4pm but are able to use the wider estate until then, The Wifi is available in the restaurant area a five minute walk from the site and this is the same for the toilets which are open from 9 until 6. Our mobile provider is O2 and signal was very hit and miss, could be a problem if you need assistance after the estate has closed, for the night because you are secluded. We had a drink in the Spread Eagle pub which was pleasant but we found expensive for £8.75 for a pint of bitter shandy and a medium white wine.

What a wonderful spot!

If you are a Capability Brown fan or not, having the whole estate to yourself after the rest of the world has gone home makes this a special place. Wonderful lakeside and Estate walks, with dogs at certain times of the year allowed around the lake - see NT website. Much quieter site now it has been moved away from the back of the kitchens to the other side of the overflow carpark. The Spread Eagle pub does excellent food, lunchtime and evenings - take a torch for the walk back up the zigzag hill in the dark. There are often art exhibitions in the gallery near the pub. NT restaurant also very good. Didn't try the TV access, but the wi fi signal on mobiles was intermittent on the site itself. Brilliant spot, shame more NT sites don't do the same!!
