Front entrance to Stourhead HouseStourhead House was build in the early 1720s by Colen Campbell for Henry Hoare I. It is modelled on sixteenth century Venetian Villas in the Palladian style. The National Trust does not allow photography indoors, so I can only show you external pictures here. To the left the front entrance, leading to a library, a paintings collection and some good examples of Chippendale furniture. Stourhead House - back

Above and below the back of the building with an impression of the rhododendron in the garden. From here you can also walk down to Stourhead Garden.
I'm not sure what the building below left is, I just thought it looks nice here. It's on the way to King Alfred's Tower, just past the Obelisk.
