Situated mid-way between Plymouth and Exeter just off the A 38 Devon Expressway, the hotel benefits from a central, yet peaceful, location on the edge of Dartmoor.

Perfect for visitors to the Abbey Church and those enjoying a hiking or canoeing break, it has 33 luxurious, contemporary-styled bedrooms.

The hotel has a bar and a restaurant with a new menu showcasing local produce, plus a terrace, affording stunning views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside.

For those looking for a more flexible stay, Buckfast Abbey also has a range of self-catering accommodation, suitable for families and groups.

Buckfast Abbey’s Conference Centre is the perfect venue to host an inspirational business event, meeting or corporate lunch.

It has six, fully equipped, rooms each catering for up to 85 people. The largest facility is currently undergoing an extensive refurbishment, due for completion in the latter half of 2020.

The conference centre offers exceptional catering, using fresh local ingredients prepared daily. Private dining can also be arranged.

Throughout the year, there is always a great deal to enjoy at Buckfast Abbey – including the stunning grounds and garden events, music concerts and three shops, selling gifts, food and wine made by local producers and monks and nuns in the UK and beyond.

Another highlight is the Monastic Way Exhibition, providing a fascinating insight into the lives of religious communities at Buckfast and throughout Europe.
