  • About the Stourhead Estate

    The Spread Eagle Inn is on the Stourhead estate which features a Palladian mansion and world-famous landscape lake & garden.  

    Secluded in its own private valley, Stourhead features one of the world's finest landscape gardens. The 18th-century design centres on the magnificent lake, surrounded by classical temples, enchanting grottos and rare and exotic trees.

    Uncover the fascinating history of the Hoare family at Stourhead House, a majestic Palladian mansion home to a unique Regency library and fabulous collections of Chippendale furniture and paintings, set amid delightful lawns and parkland.  

    King Alfred's Tower, an intriguing red-brick folly built in 1772 by Henry Flitcroft, is almost 50m high and gives breathtaking views over the estate. Much of the estate woodland and downland is managed for nature conservation and there are two interesting Iron Age hill-forts, White Sheet Hill and Park Hill Camp.  

    Stourhead is at the heart of a 1,072-hectare (2,650-acre) estate where chalk downs, ancient woods and farmland are managed for nature conservation.
