BUCKLAND ABBEY

Discovery, tranquillity and history  an ancient gem in the Tavy Valley landscape When you visit Buckland, you follow over 700 years of footsteps; from the Cistercians who built the Abbey and farmed the estate, to seafarers Grenville and Drake who changed the shape of the house and the fate of the country.


The Abbey is part museum, part house, and filled with treasures such as the legendary Drake’s Drum. There’s no mistaking the magnificence of the Great Barn, which has remained virtually unchanged since it was built all those centuries ago.


You’ll discover meadows, orchards and woodlands where you can enjoy far-reaching views of the Tavy Valley. Our way-marked trails are a riot of colour through the seasons, with an unmissable carpet of bluebells in spring.


At the cider house, herbaceous borders provide seasonal interest and a secret wildgarden is a wonderful place for quiet contemplation (or a game of hide and seek).


Find your favourite spot and you’ll want to come back to Buckland time and again.
