Fantastic location but such a shame about the huge price increase next year....

Stourhead Estate
Fantastic location and proximity to grounds/farm shop/cafe but fear that we will not be coming again as the price per night will almost double next year. Such a shame as it does feel as if the National Trust is taking advantage of holidaymakers during this difficult time. Maybe a compromise could work and there be a reduced ‘per night’ charge for National Trust members? This is especially given that all units (caravans and motor homes) and guests are a fairly captive market and contribute to takings in the farm shop, cafe, additional estate shops and the local pub in the grounds of the estate. Additionally, as there are no ‘facilities’ (showers and loos etc) it would seem hard to argue increased cleaning and sanitising to justify an almost 100% price hike. Come on National Trust …! We have supported you through our continued membership and didn’t hesitate to renew even when things were locked down because we treasure what you look after. The price increase next year does feel somewhat like an opportunity for you to cash in on the increased popularity of touring and the UK holiday market.

Loved it

Stourhead Estate
I am writing this review because of some of the reviews being as I see it a bit unfair, yes the grass was long in some places,but for the price you get full access to the all of the grounds and house. As at that time I was a none National Trust member (I am now), I felt was more than I expected and water and a toilet waste point and electric hookup was included. If It was just a cl well ok but its not, It would have cost me and my wife more just to visit the estate as day visitors. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. I for one would definitely go back. The site was quiet and peaceful and we both had a good night sleep. Our two dogs were also welcome for no extra charge.

Bit neglected but several pluses

Stourhead Estate
Site is a small field off the overflow car park. There are 5 "so called" hard standings which were very overgrown with grass and surrounding grass was rather long. EHU to each pitch and water, chemical and general waste available by field gate. This area was sanitized whilst we were there and the waste bins emptied. Other than that no one seemed to be in charge. After pitching we walked down to the NT reception to notify them of our arrival. The chap did not check our booking confirmation or ask how long we were staying! The toilets are next to the NT reception and open 8am - 5.15pm so a short walk away. On the plus site it was very quiet, entry to the gardens is free and you can wander around at any time I believe. The Spread Eagle pub is a short stroll away and very good. Do think CAMC should make them renovate and maintain the pitches properly.

Disappointing and unkept CL

Stourhead Estate
As National Trust and CAMC members we were very disappointed with this site. Grass was very long approx 12 inch. Hardstandings were overgrown with weeds. Chemical Disposal Service Point was absolutely disgusting - no hosepipe to clean down and ‘leave as you find’. Nobody at Stourhead seemed to have responsibility for condition of CL. House and gardens very nice and worth a visit, but spoilt by the CL. We left 2 nights earlier than booked.

Tranquility and relaxation

Stourhead Estate
I stayed here for two nights because I planned to watch an outdoor performance by The Three Inch Fools in the grounds of the estate. Only 5 pitches, all with electric (10m cable ample). Facilities, fresh water, grey waste, chemical waste and bins spotlessly clean. The site is tucked away off the overflow car park and feels like you are back to basics, I love that it is adequate but not manicured. The hard standing is overgrown in places but flat (didn’t need levellers), the surrounding grass kept reasonably long. No light pollution so take a torch if you venture out after dark, and there was peace and quiet throughout my visit. The NT visitor toilets are a short walk away and open around 8am after cleaning) and close around 5:15pm unless there is an event on (open unlit 10pm for the evening play). Farm shop and NT restaurant in main visitor car park and The Spread Eagle Inn in the courtyard about 800m away. Beautiful NT gardens (entrance included in site fee) and lots of walks in the surrounding area. Easy access from the A303. Exactly what I hoped from the NT, no frills, at one with the surrounding countryside.
