Stourhead, Gardens & Sublime England

Escape the modern world for a genteel stroll around the lake at Stourhead, the world's greatest landscape garden before journeying into the best of authentic, undiscovered England that few encounter!

"The best tour I have ever been on!" - Sarah B. Read more reviews.


Depart the bustle of everyday life for an adventure to one of the greatest gardens in the world at Stourhead.  

Enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of the natural world combined with the temples, follies and grottoes of the Hoare family that make the Stourhead gardens so utterly magical and unique.  Wander languidly through the family's grand Georgian house admiring the period furnishings, décor and opulence before heading off to a historic, mediaeval town for lunch.

Spend the afternoon admiring the gardens, art and sculptures at an internationally admired art gallery located in the historic buildings of a mediaeval farm.  Then, begin the journey back towards home, with one final stop at another hidden gem, before arriving back in Bath, having enjoyed a truly extraordinary day, and with memories that will last forever!

The Best of the Best

"My husband and I had an amazing time with Nigel on a full-day outing, truly discovering some hidden gems of the Cotswolds. This day was part of a 10 day holiday in England -- one in which we had an incredible time overall and saw some beautiful sights. However, I can honestly say that this tour by In & Beyond Bath stood out as the highlight of our trip."

Highlight of our Holiday

"We booked the Stonehenge and Secret Somerset full day experience on May 25th. Our amazing tour guide Dan picked us up at the front door of our B&B in Bath and asked us a few questions to find out what we were hoping to see and we set off. I was surprised that my husband & I were the only 2 guests booked for the tour, along with Sara, who had just joined the company and came along too. It was like our own private tour for the day."

"Our four member family toured the Cotswolds with a fun, knowledgeable and very energetic guide, Michael. We lunched in Lacock at a wonderful gastropub recommended by our guide and were very pleased with the food and service. We highly recommend this service."
