*In the peaceful solitude of its secluded position it is possible to imagine just how Forde Abbey looked to many of its previous owners, from its medieaval beginnings to the present day: monks going about their daily round of work and prayer, prosperous parliamentary gentlemen discussing the cavalier threat, gifted philosophers debating the imponderable, elegant Victorian ladies fanning themselves by the fireside and country gentlemen going about their work on the estate.

Each part of Forde Abbey’s history can be clearly read in the
architecture and structure of the house and garden. It is a living
testament to the people who have lived and worked here over the past nine centuries and makes it one of the most fascinating buildings in the country.*
