Stourton and Stourhead

The small village of Stourton is part of the 1,072ha (2,649 acres) Stourhead estate, a National Trust property that includes Stourhead House and Gardens. Other attractions in Stourton include the medieval St Peter’s Church.

It is located at the southwestern corner of Wiltshire, close to the country boundary with Somerset and Dorset. The village is 13.7km (8½ miles) south of Frome.

Coming and going

Stourton is in a rural area that is easiest to explore by car. Although you can take a local bus here from Frome, services are infrequent with one service each week operating only on Wednesdays.

If you’re travelling by public transport, there are more frequent buses that stop near the Bell and Crown in Zeals, which is 2.4km (1½ miles) south of Stourton. From the bus stop in Zeals, it is around a half-hour walk along Bells Lane to Stourton.

Zeals is served by Salisbury Reds route 25, which runs between Salisbury and Wincanton, and South West Coaches route X4, which goes to Gillingham and Sturminster Newton. In both instances, the buses are not particularly frequent with only two or three buses per day but it is a much better option than the weekly service to Stourton.
