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.

It is a traditional country estate in the heart of the Devon countryside close to the cathedral city of Exeter. The Fursdon family has lived in this historic house for over 750 years. Fursdon house, gardens and tea room are open for visits on publicised days between Easter and the end of September and groups are welcome by arrangement.

Please see Opening Times & Pricing for details of our 2020 opening times. 

We also have a luxury holiday cottage in the grounds available for relaxing holidays, short breaks and long weekends.

The Fursdons look forward to welcoming you to their family home.
