Fyne Court is a hidden gem in the heart of the Quantock Hills. You can explore this wild garden and discover pieces of its history hiding in the undergrowth. The estate was the home of the Crosse family who lived here until the house was destroyed by fire in 1894. Andrew Crosse, Fyne Court's most famous resident, was known as 'The Thunder and Lightning Man' by the local community due to his extensive scientific experiments which he conducted in the estate.
