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.

“We were delighted with the effort that went into ensuring our Conference ran smoothly. The attention to detail was superb, the staff incredibly helpful and the facilities ideal. There was a wide variety and quality of catering at lunchtime and delicious homemade cookies at coffee time. The location of the Centre is ideal, just off the A38 and its proving to be a favourite venue for our South West Teaching School Alliance activities.”
