About Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre

Our Conference Centre offers state-of-the-art facilities in the grounds of the historic Buckfast Abbey. The original monastery was founded nearly 1000 years ago in the shadow of Dartmoor’s undulating hills.

Allowed to fall in to ruin after Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries in the sixteenth century, its fortunes were only revived when a group of exiled French Benedictine monks found solace there in the 1880s. Over a period of thirty years just four monks rebuilt the Abbey church as it stands today.

Delegates to the Conference Centre are welcome to enjoy both the Abbey grounds and the Abbey itself during their time with us: A refreshing and invigorating escape from the busy day-to-day of work.

Please see our main website to learn more about the extraordinary history of the Abbey.

“The entire experience at the Conference Centre was fantastic! It was a smooth booking process and we were well taken care of right from the word go. Not only are the facilities exceptional, the location is perfect. The catering was outstanding and the staff were attentive, they really thought about the little details.
I would absolutely recommend Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre.”
