Group Visits

We are delighted to invite larger groups (20 or more people) to Fursdon.

Our preference for group visits is on a Monday, or on a Wednesday or Thursday morning, between Easter Monday and the end of September (our open season). However, we will always try to to be flexible and we are very happy to talk through various options.

Group visits can take the format of garden only, with refreshments, or garden and guided house tours, also with refreshments.

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.

Small groups of less than 20 people are also very welcome on our public open afternoons (Wednesdays, Thursdays and bank holidays). If at all possible, we would ask that if you are planning to visit with a small group, that you let us know in advance so that we can plan the afternoon.

There is a reduction in ticket price for groups of 20 or more. We can accommodate one coach and up to 45 people at a time. Please note that parties of this size will be taken round the house in three consecutive groups.

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.
