  • This is a lovely place to walk the dogs, and for taking the children. It is great for photography. Unsurprisingly it is busy at peak times, but once in the gardens you would never know it. Join the Na...  more »

  • Great place for a day out with whole family. Lots of walking paths and beautiful architecture! As the weather was brilliant when we visited, I felt like on Greek holidays. The house from the outside is impressive, unfortunately it was closed when we visited so it's good to check before you plan your trip. You also need to pay additional charge if you want to see the house. The whole gardens are just amazing and definitely worth seeing.
  • Huge, open lawns with magnificent architecture of a diverse variety scattered around the grounds, a well kept golf course and a plethora of wildlife, all around the flowing lakes and ponds. The house itself is also an outstanding monument to architecture, sculpture and art. I traveled nearly 2 hours with friends to the "Festival of the Unexceptional" car show, but truly had one of the most *exceptional* experiences. Worth traveling to, and making a day of it to really experience the grounds and house, especially during the summer season. I hope to make many returns here.
  • Loved visiting Stowe. Visited with friends, we had 3 kids between us who all had a great day outside. Lovely walks. Great food hall, one of the better NT ones. Would revisit.
  • One of my very favourite properties, though the first time I'd visited in about ten years. Lots of improvements have been made in that time including the opening of the work grotto which was a highlight for me. It's a long walk round, but there's something interesting it beautiful around every corner so well worth it.
  • What's not to love about this beautiful, tranquil place. If you love a good stroll around huge sculpted parks then this is for you. There's loads of little hidden gems to explore, lots of different flowers, wildlife and scenic spots for photography enthusiasts.
