About Ston Easton Park

Described by the Times’ editor William Rees-Mogg as “one of the most interesting and talented of the Somerset families”, the Hippsley family built Ston Easton in 1740. It’s a beautiful house, in a classical Georgian Palladian style, and was built for entertaining the Hippsleys’ glamorous,  influential friends.

It is a large house, with 20 bedrooms (all en-suite), sleeping around 40, with up to 8 additional children in cots or zed-beds. The reception rooms of Ston Easton are extensive and impressive – with both staterooms (such as The Salon), and more unusual rooms, like The Print Room, and The Painting Room.

Ston Easton’s pleasure gardens are just as impressive as the mansion – including a sweet house called ‘The Garden Cottage’ (which has 3 bedrooms), that can be found behind the fully-operational Victorian kitchen garden. The River Norr runs through the back of the gardens and beside the estate’s parkland, and plenty remains of Humphry Repton’s original landscape, including his romantic Palladian bridges spanning the river. There’s also the original ice house, a ruined grotto fountain, a sham castle,  and a rare 18th Century plunge pool (the discovery of which, helped save Ston Easton Park from demolition in the 1950s).

Should you ever want to leave the estate, there’s plenty to do in the surrounding area: Somerset is a lovely county – Glastonbury Tor is nearby (and Glastonbury town), as is Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge and Haynes Motor Museum. Cider is a speciality of the West Country, and there are any number of  ‘cider trails’ to discover. There is also the beautiful spa-town of Bath, or the city of Bristol, with all of their distractions.

Ston Easton Park is suitable for exclusive-use parties of friends or family, reunions, special celebrations and weddings. It is also suitable for corporate and business use, or retreats.

Just to say "thank you" for our works meal last Friday. We all enjoyed your delicious food and the evening was everything we hoped for. Great service and great food. Please thank your staff for all their hard work and being so friendly and helpful.

We went today as a party of 11 for an aunties birthday. We booked for afternoon festive tea. We were sat in a room downstairs, poor lighting and not a single decoration, fairy light or candle in sight. Pots of tea were brought in and placed on the table, we had barely any teaspoons and no sugar. Tiers of sandwiches scones and cakes were brought in, each one was to serve 3 people. The sandwiches were very dry but the scones and cakes were lovely. During the 4 hours we were there not one member of staff came down to see us or ask if we needed anything. At one stage one of us had to go and ask for some more tea at which point we were given a pot of hot water to pour into our already used cold loose leaf tea! This was undrinkable! The only reason we stayed was because it was a family occasion and had a lot to catch up on. It was appalling over priced with no service. We paid £22.50 each but their prices have gone up again aparantly! Such a shame as with a little effort it could have been so lovely but we won't be going back!
