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.

“I must on behalf of all the officers and service personnel of the Veterans’ Association write to thank and commend you for the excellent lunch and garden party, which you organised so competently for us last Saturday.

It was a dramatically successful event due I am sure to your expertise. So much so that members of the Association are already asking me about the next one.

The food was delicious; the selection of drinks (including the inspired welcome drink of Buckfast’s Fizz), was superb; the service was superb. This together with the beautiful surroundings of the Abbey and Gardens and the excellent summer weather all came together to make a most wonderful occasion, which I am sure none of us will forget.”
