Groups and coaches are welcome here at Forde Abbey, where the house, gardens, tearoom, pottery exhibition, plant centre and gift shop provide activities enough for a full day out.
Special rates are available for groups of 15 people or more and it is also possible to arrange for one of our experienced guides to take you around the house. To make the tours as informative and comfortable as possible they are conducted when the house is not open to other visitors. Therefore you can arrange a tour on Mondays (morning or afternoon) or in the morning of any day the house is open.
For a group visit on a Saturday, please contact us before confirming the date with your group.
