The beauty of the place is compelling. You are assured of complete tranquillity and a depth of silence which is rare.

Fursdon is one of Devon's oldest family homes offering holiday accommodation, house tours and garden visits.

A traditional country estate in the heart of the Devon countryside close to the cathedral city of Exeter, the Fursdon family has lived here for over 750 years. 

COVID-19 UPDATE, 23rd March 2020

Following government guidance and in line with country-wide efforts to contain the spread of Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to close our house, tea-room and garden to members of the public until further notice. 

As many of you know, we had hoped very much to keep the garden open. Unfortunately with social distancing and hygiene measures as essential as they currently are, and many other gardens closing around the country, we feel now that it would be impossible to do so safely.

As ever, we are monitoring the situation daily and hope to re-open as soon as we are legitimately able to do so.

We wish you all well in these unprecedented times, and hope to see you later in the year.

With best wishes,

Ollie, Emily and the Fursdon Team
