Buckland Abbey, Devon

Almost as peaceful now as it would have been some 700 years ago when the Cistercian monks settled in this undisturbed valley at the edge of Dartmoor, Buckland Abbey encompasses both architectural and historical interest as well as idyllic gardens for relaxation.
In the 13th century, Buckland Abbey was home to the Cistercian monks who built the abbey and the incredible Great Barn and farmed the then vast estate.

The Abbey, now a house with a combination of furnished rooms and interactive museum galleries, tells the story of how two seafaring adventurers - Sir Richard Grenville and Sir Francis Drake - changed the shape of the house and the fate of the country.
