Explore a wild garden

Fyne Court is a hidden gem in the heart of the Quantock Hills. Explore this wild garden, looking out for the boathouse and folly.

The estate was the home of the Crosse family who lived here until the house was destroyed by fire in 1894. Discover how the fire started and find out where the house used to stand on one of our eye opener tours.

Learn more about Andrew Crosse, Fyne Court's most famous resident, known as 'The Thunder and Lightning Man' by the locals.

There's plenty for the children to do including building a den, climbing a tree or playing giant jenga in the courtyard.

Relax in our newly refurbished courtyard tea-room with a cream tea or a hot chocolate after a walk around one of the three waymarked trails.
