Nice to see but that's it, add it to part of Stourhead visit. many walks around the area. It was closed when I visited. The views from the top must be stunning but it really is a long way up!

There is parking in different parts of the lane to gain access to view the tower, although it was closed on Sunday. About three miles drive from Stourhead through lanes which are narrow in places and with some potholes. Well worth viewing.

Been coming here since 1964. Remember throwing a boomerang with a seven year old late on a summer afternoon in the warm sunshine then having a picnic. Sheer heaven.

This was a lovely spot before the National Trust decided to install a ticket machine in the carpark. Now you can't move for people hurriedly reversing out of it into the narrow country lane as soon as they realise they haveta pay! Can't blame them...More

We popped to see the Tower after visiting nearby NT property Stourhead. There's a car park next to it but it's closed at the moment. Would have been amazing views from the top! Stourhead is well worth a visit.

If the tower is open it is well worth the climb to the top. The views are extra special. An informative board at the bottom explains the history of the tower. No extra facilities, but Stourhead is close by.

Park pretty much right next to it. I loved the way it imposed itself on me size is bigger than you think. Wish it was open love to see the view from the top.

An enjoyable climb with a great view on a sunny day. We went on an exceptionally hot day and inside it was incredibly cool and refreshing

Completely unexpected – just what is it doing here? Nice place for a picnic, and let your mind roam about its function. Ties in nicely with Stourhead Garden, at the end of a 3 or 4 kilometre walk through a bucolic valley and passing St....More
