The story of Stourhead (Wiltshire) is a fascinating one, as much about the people who created it, as the garden itself. It is a timeless paradise, a landscape garden as breathtaking today as when it was created in the eighteenth century. No other garden from that period feels as complete, so perfectly balanced in its ideas, design and execution, and in the intensity of feeling it induces. Stephen Anderton tells the fascinating story of how this tribute to the classical world complete with lake, temples, grotto, bridges and monuments of all kinds came to be created by generations of the Hoare family in Wiltshire.

He takes us inside Stourhead s beautiful Palladian mansion, and together with the head gardener Alan Power, explores the garden through the seasons, with its world-famous views and magnificent trees. This book is an informative companion to one of Britain s greatest gardens.
