    Smashing cottage in a smashing location

    The NT volunteers in Stourhead house were exceptional. Interested, engaging, knowlegable and entertaining. The house is wonderfully curated. WE had a memorable visit. The cottage location is superb and the place is comfortable. The Spread Eagle is handy but the food, though adequate, could do with an uplift perhaps. All in a smashing cottage in a smashing location.

    Made enjoyable...

    The peace, quiet and beautiful garden location. Seeing Stourhead house decorated for Christmas and listening to the choirs was very Christmassy. The lovely helpful staff in the Spread eagle inn and the Estate office.

    Very clean cottage

    Assess to Stourhead Gardens (and house) was wonderful. Access to the varied footpaths was terrific and the location and size of the cottage allowed for a hosting opportunity for our friends across the country. Lovely spot, cottage was very clean and description accurate. Kitchen very well equiped; beds comfortable. The sitting and dining areas were a bit basic, cramped and just marginally comfortable .
