A Country Inn set in a Stately Home Garden.

One night stay for my wife and I following a relaxing family gathering at Stourhead Gardens to celebrate my wife's birthday. (We are all NT members). Just after arrival at Stourhead we went for a pre-booked lunch at the Spread Eagle Inn, which was superb. We all 'walked-off' the lovely lunch around the gardens which after many visits are well known to us. Once the rest of the family had departed we returned to the Inn and spent some hours in the bar reading complimentary Sunday papers. My wife was impressed that the bar could serve decaf tea and I enjoyed some of the real ales on offer. The room was a really good size and included two easy chairs. The bathroom was really big for an hotel. Breakfast was excellent. I am rather a traditionalist and couldn't fault the Full English whilst my wife had freshly prepared smoked salmon with poached eggs which she said was perfect. One additional comment is to say that all of the staff, without exception, were friendly, courteous and were there to ensure our stay was very comfortable. We don't live far from Stourton but will return again without doubt.
