  • Accessibility at Furzey Gardens

    Furzey Gardens is on a hill and the informal woodland paths and gradients mean that parts of that the garden are not wheelchair accessible

    Our informal garden paths are narrow, twisting. steep in places and can be slippery. We do have an easier path route if you have difficulty walking or use a mobility device. However the utmost care must be taken even on this route.

  • Toilets

    Toilets and baby change facilities are only available during tea rooms opening hours.

  • Parking

    There is limited parking available at Furzey Gardens. We do not own the car park adjacent to the gardens but are grateful that it can be used for our visitors. However, during school holidays the car park can quickly become full and parking is not available in the immediate vicinity due to narrow lanes, farm access and out of consideration for our neighbours.

    We suggest that you arrive early, or plan an afternoon visit especially in school holidays and sunny weekends.

    We often employ a car parking attendant in busy periods to ensure that we make the best use of the space. Please follow their instructions as they are trying to enable as many visitors as possible to park.

    We apologise for any inconvenience you may experience.

  • Refreshments

    The tea rooms are currently closed until further notice to limit the spread of coronavirus in line with Government advice. There are no refreshment or toilet facilities when the tea rooms are closed.

    The tea rooms also provide training and work experience for people with learning disabilities. Thank you for your custom, which supports this work.

  • No dogs

    Sadly only assistance dogs are allowed to come into the gardens.
