Stowe is a full day out of walking with lots of architecture and nature to appreciate. Myself and my partner visited for the first time during January. I would recommend going when its abit warmer but we enjoyed our day. Lots of walking but there are paths for accessibility. I believe there are electric scooters or carts available for people with limited mobility. Some of the buildings are off path on rocky hills to climb. We spent 3 hours walking around and still didn’t see everything its such a large area to explore. There are churches, arch ways, lakes, rivers, bridges and general forest areas to explore. The site has toilets by the car park/cafe so make sure you use those facilities before exploring the area. We finished our walk with some cake & a pot of tea which was delicious. There is also a gift shop, book shop & some old parlour rooms to check out. If you want to take a picnic there are lots of grassy areas and also a couple of picnic benches available. All in all a lovely day out which will raise your step count for the day while giving your eyes something to admire. Would definitely recommend a day here.
What a place, we loved it here, the sun was out and lots of fresh country air was taken. The grounds are stunning and things to see all around you, a great day for a family walk and dogs are allowed. Our little one loved it though unfortunately the Stowe House was closed but if you go to the cafe on the ground floor for £2 you can go into the wee museum, which has interactive screens, costumes and artefacts......short but good fun and interesting We will come back.....Again and again as its family fun and if a National Trust member...FREE though the House has a charge
