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.

“What an excellent day we had yesterday. The conference room was ideal with plenty of light. Our facilitator had a glitch-free day with the technology which is always a positive!

As for location, as well as having lovely weather for us, it can’t be beaten. A very calming environment, so beneficial when brains are working so hard. As for the catering, the food was excellent as always! Good to have lovely quality, tasty food, a good selection and so appealing to the eye.”
