… Dusk at Stourhead …

20 January 2015

One of our stops in Dorset was Stourhead, a National Trust property with, quite possibly, one of the best gardens in the UK. The house and the gardens date back to the 1700s, with the gardens gradually developed by its owners over a number of years to incorporate lakes, woodland, grottos, temples and an extensive range of flora and fauna. Sadly we arrived 2 hours before sunset so it was getting dark very quickly, hence the moody feel of the photos below, but I’d like to think this was probably the best time to visit as light levels dipped and shadows started to appear, only adding to the mythical atmosphere of the place. If you haven’t yet been, I would highly recommend it. This is one of THE most beautiful places we have ever visited, allowing you to escape into your very own magical fairyland.

    Hey Aneta – Stourhead looks familiar, not as sunny as the day you shot us there on our great day!
    Best wishes
