Friars Court is open for pre-booked visits (minimum of 20, maximum of 54 guests), between the months of Spring and Autumn. 'Open by arrangement only' ensures exclusivity for the group for the duration of their visit.
In addition to enjoying the privacy and tranquillity of the gardens group visits can enjoy an inclusive guided tour of the grounds where the different aspects, and development, of this historic family home, garden and farm will be described. The tour takes approximately 1 hour, covers a distance of about ¼ of a mile and is suitable for wheelchair users.
Instead of, or after, a tour, visitors may wander the grounds at leisure or relax in the comfortable armchairs in the Old Laundry or on one of the many benches dotted around the grounds.
Meals are served in the spacious Garden Room from where visitors can enjoy views of lawns and herbacious borders.
