Fursdon is an ideal location if you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful holiday home from which to explore Devon. Come at any time of year for a short break to re-charge your batteries, or stay for longer and really unwind. The Park and Garden Wings are elegant and spacious apartments in a Georgian manor house, while Fursdon Cottage, recently refurbished, is Victorian with a stylish and contemporary finish, yet retaining its beamed and characterful interior.
The two self-contained, totally private wings of a historic country house have the style of past eras and the comfort of 21st century living. Both wings have been creatively furnished and decorated. The Park Wing (sleeps 6) has some large rooms with magnificent views over the Fursdon estate. The Garden Wing (sleeps 3) feels more intimate, though still roomy and has beautiful views out into the walled garden and the cobbled courtyard.
Fursdon Cottage (sleeps 5/6) and is suitable for couples or families. We welcome dogs in the Cottage, too, though unfortunately not in the apartments. The cottage has its own enclosed garden with a terrace right at the top enjoying spectacular and far reaching views as far as Dartmoor.
Enjoy the tranquillity of Fursdon where the same family has lived for more than seven hundred and fifty years. Explore the farm and country walks (with notes on plants and wildlife), find a grassy bank in the garden and settle down with a book. But if you want more excitement, Fursdon is only half an hour from the cultural centre of Exeter and close to many other facilities for rural or urban pursuits, with the south and north coasts around an hour away. In the summer enjoy a guided tour of the manor house and tea in the Coach Hall tea room.
