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 room we used was great, the view was superb and everything we needed was at hand. Carin and Sue ensured all went smoothly and our buffet lunch was excellent and well received by all members of the team. The grounds provided an excellent setting for our event – you’ll be seeing us again!”
