About the garden

With views across parkland to Dartmoor, Fursdon House and Garden is a beautiful and peaceful garden on a sunny Devonshire hillside. The terraced grounds, sheltered by cob walls, hedges and the house itself are a haven for pollinators, with a wonderful mix of perennial borders, herbs and roses in a variety of planting styles.

A woodland walk - filled with birdsong in the springtime - seasonal wildflowers, and pond in the meadow garden make the grounds of this historic home a perfect spot for wildlife enthusiasts and garden lovers alike. The house has been the residence of the Fursdon family since the Middle Ages and its character is beautifully framed by the more contemporary mix of gardens that surround it.

A historic tearoom is the perfect spot for a refreshments after enjoying the delights of the garden, which can be enhanced with a guided tour, or enjoyed at your own pace.

Took my Mum for a birthday treat. Beautiful gardens in an idyllic setting. The views are sensational, looking far across the Devon countryside The cream tea is generous and delicious. I love it and will definitely be going again- regularly!

Went for a afternoon walk about the grounds. Plesent and relaxing. Friendly staff. I did not like the 3/4 mile road from the main road to reach Fursdon House. Some really big potholes to avoid in the narrow lane.

Interesting house, great guided tour, small but beautiful gardens and great cream tea!! Well worth buying a season ticket for the garden £4.00 as a one off visit or £7.50 for the summer!!!!

My stay was short but truly amazing - quiet, comfortable, beautiful and I felt full of go. I was intending to stay in the Fishermans Cot where we met our fellow ex-students for a Killertonian cricket match against Bradninch. However the Cot was full and I accepted the offer from a great friend of staying at the Park Wing of the mansion. I am shocked by the beauty of the place.
