Well-behaved dogs are welcome at Forde Abbey on a short lead and there is always a bowl of water for thirsty dogs at the tearoom door.


Free parking, gift shop, plant nursery and a tearoom serving light lunches, snacks and cakes.

Membership Cards are not valid for some special events. (The list of special events may change throughout the year as new events are added to our calendar If in doubt, please contact us before your visit.) Lost cards will incur a small replacement charge. We reserve the right to change the opening times without notice. The membership card can be used only by the named holder and remains the property of Forde Abbey, who reserve the right to withdraw the card at any time.

We do accept the Tesco Days Out Tokens to pay for the entrance to Forde Abbey, but they are not valid for the Summer Fair where all the entrance money goes to charity.
