We welcome group visits to Fursdon and these can be arranged through the estate office, when the house is not normally open to the public.
Small groups of less than 20 people can come on Wednesdays or Thursdays, Fursdon's public open days (Easter to end of September), by arrangement.
For 2019 only we regret that we cannot offer group visits in July and August.
A guided tour of the historic house takes between 45 minutes and 1 hour but do allow some time for a relaxing stroll in the attractive gardens surrounded by birdsong and nature in its widest sense. When possible you will be welcomed by a member of the Fursdon family before being shown round by an experienced guide.
There is a reduction in ticket price for groups of 20 or more and there are several options. We can accommodate one coach and up to 48 people at a time. Parties of this size will be taken round the house in two groups by two guides.
Corporate visits are also welcomed. We would be happy for you to bring your guests or clients for an informal tour and a glass of wine on a warm summer evening.
