Lovely location but too expensive

Stourhead Estate

We have stayed several times over the years and the price has gradually increased each time as might be expected, in line with other CLs. Unfortunately this year the price has been dramatically increased by charging £8 each extra for more than one adult! This makes it very expensive, at £30 pn for two people staying at this basic CL. The toilets are only open during the day and are shared with NT visitors. The car parks were being resurfaced during our stay, making it very noisy, however we were pre-warned about this work. We would normally rate this 5 stars for 'Peace and tranquility'.

Stourhead is wonderful, but sadly the campsite is not.

Stourhead Estate
Having camped at a wide variety of sites over the past 2 years (Club Sites, touring parks, and CL's/CS's), the pricing for this NT 5-pitch site is ridiculously inflated. The nightly rate for 2-people is more than I would expect to (and have) paid for a fully serviced site with toilet/showers, camping shop, views etc etc. The site description does say there is a toilet, but this is quite a walk (by the NT shop/visitor area), so effectively be prepared to be 100% self-sufficient. Also on arrival at the site there is a blackboard stating that no BBQ's are allowed, this we did not see mentioned when booking, and would be useful information for many campers. What would be better for these NT campsites is if they gave NT members a reduced rate for the camping, IMO £20/night (for 2-people) would be more than fair. On the plus side, having Stourhead on the doorstep, the Spread Eagle pub, and plenty of walks is a positive - however I probably would not return to this site again unless the rates were reduced.

A lovely peaceful site

Stourhead Estate
We have spent 3 nights at this lovely CL, the site is basic but with access to the Stourhead house and gardens which is a definate bonus, the gardens are beautiful and also dog friendly. There is a cafe and shop on site as well as a farm shop and the Spread Eagle Inn. We will definitely be back.

Jubilee weekend

Stourhead Estate
Close enough for a short minute break. Be aware that the ‘headline’ on the page is misleading, pricing is not pitch and all occupants. Lovely quiet rural site, very basic so be prepared to use your own facilities. The staff are unclear what is accessible when the location is closed. Booking and check in were less than coordinated with the staff at reception not having an up to date list of who was expected. No clarity about what happens if you arrive after reception has closed. As has been said a discount for NT members. Will be back

Jubilee weekend visit.

Stourhead Estate
Close enough for a short notice break. While I agree with other reviewers that a discount for NT members would be helpful, our main concern was that we couldn’t book less than 3 nights even though there were vacant pitches throughout our stay. Booking and Check in could be improved. It is not clear on any documents what the process is after the reception has closed, and when we did check in the booking sheet was not up to date. Also there was no advice about what was accessible once the location closed to the public. Website is not clear that advertised price is only for unit and 1person, so increase at check out was a surprise. As a basic site it fits the bill, but do be prepared to use your own facilities We will consider using this site again.
