Stourton is on the National Trust's Stourhead Estate, one of their most visited properties. Further information may be found by clicking here
The whole of the Stourhead Estate was originally owned by the Hoare Family. Part of the Estate was left to National Trust in in 1946 by Sir Henry Arthur Hoare who had given Stourton Memorial Hall to the village as a permanent memorial to his son Captain "Harry" Hoare and other local men killed in WWI.

The principle objective of the Hall is to provide a Village Hall for the use of the inhabitants of Stourton for meetings, lectures, classes and other forms of recreation and leisure. It is also available for hire by the general public and for limited commercial activities. As there are several Wedding venues on the Stourhead estate the Hall is a very popular place for Wedding Receptions.

The Hall is approximately 21 metres x 5.7 metres and has a fully fitted kitchen, Lavatories are in the Spread Eagle Courtyard. The Hall is not available for commercial catering events open to the public, except for local organisations, and these are fully booked.

The Hall is licenced for a maximum of 100 people. Experience shows that 80 seated is about the maximum. Tables and chairs are available from the store room and must be returned, in the designated spaces, at the end of the hire.

There is a LCD projector and screen fitted from the ceiling. The screen is F.O.C. and the projector may be hired. There is a fully featured sound system which, at it's most simple level, can play from any mp3 source e.g. mobile phone. There are also 3 radio mics and a DVD player.

The Hall is in the Spread Eagle Courtyard close to the entrance of Stourhead Gardens one of the busiest National Trust properties and a Landscape Garden of international repute. On other sides of the Courtyard are the Spread Eagle Inn, The Ice Cream Parlour and First-View Gallery.
