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 would like to thank you for your support with the South West Emergency Academic Team Meeting which we hosted with you yesterday. During the planning and organisation stages, I really appreciated that you and your team were easily contactable, flexible and consistently willing to help.

The meeting was a great success, and this was in no small part due to the standard of hospitality provided by you and your team. The quality of the venue and surroundings were excellent but what really stood out was the pride your catering team took in putting on a good spread for us. Personally, I felt that yesterday’s lunch was one of the best I’ve had at a conference, and I received only very positive comments from other delegates as well.

I would not be reticent in using Buckfast for events in the future, and would definitely recommend your venue to others. Many thanks once again”
