Boarstall Tower owned by the National Trust is a unique 14th century fortified gatehouse with a moat that has a real story to tell. Open on Wednesdays & Bank Holidays only between 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm there is a guide provided by the Trust who tells a very engaging tale of this place being under siege back in the English Civil War, including talk of escape tunnels under the moat and various loose cannonballs.

Loved the whole atmosphere of being able to take a guided tour of the school, this was made even better by our excellent guide. I think this part of our visit to Stowe was the icing on the cake,the gardens are lovely, and very extensive, and are a separate tour to the house. Stowe house is part of a very exclusive school, and the gardens are overseen by the NT. While we were strolling along one of the underground corridors I noticed a black & white photo of the greatest pop group in the world.

We spent a lovely day here looking round the house. Excellent guides in each room to bring the property to life all very enthusiastic. fascinating info on the harpsichord upstairs! We had a lovely lunch from the well stocked cafe in the courtyard and thoroughly enjoyed looking in all the units that were open in the courtyard as well as the secondhand book room. I loved the idea of blind buying a wrapped book with just a clue on the wrapping! We went round to the lovely church and enjoyed.
