  • Occasionally humans combine with Nature to create something special. Stowe is an example of this on a grand scale. Lord Cobham lavished a fortune on this project . The likes of Vanbrugh...

  • Loved this. Absolutely fantastic location. Great grounds and estate walk, with lovely staff. Easter egg trail was good too, with a great introduction to the area. So much to see here, with many different buildings and statues. Pretty fascinating architecture and features. A fast firm favourite!!
  • Its such a lovely place to explore, especially on a sunny day - no need to visit the house, just enjoy the gardens. At Easter, and other times of the year, they offer themed treasure hunts for the children. The paths are wide enough for wheelchair users, but they are not tarmacked, just compressed gravel, which may prove challenging for some. Do t forget to take your camera, as the views are stunning.
