The idea of having a long corporate conference in a dull, airless room is enough to make anyone’s eyes glaze over. We’ve all been there when no matter how engaging the presenter is you find your attention span slowly deteriorating as the day goes on. This has created an increased demand for conference and event spaces to offer an unusual setting that will keep the attention of delegates and motivate them to stay focused.

It has been found that taking delegates out of their usual office settings and providing fresh, fascinating surroundings to excite them helps to drive active audience participation and encourage an unforced social atmosphere which can be enjoyed by all. With the use of a visually appealing location, these events create a memorable and enjoyable experience which leaves a positive perception of your event to the audience.

At Buckfast Abbey we offer the perfect ‘get-away-from-it-all’ venue with state of the art meeting and conference facilities. Set on the edge of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park in the wooded valley of the River Dart, Buckfast Abbey is a location like no other. Our Conference Centre boasts eight seminar rooms, an exclusive boardroom and a 150-seater Schiller Hall – all with flexible seating, complete AV facilities and break out access to the beautifully maintained Abbey grounds. Our highly-praised fantastic food is all prepared and cooked on site by trained chefs and served in the relaxing environment of our dining room, with large windows providing an appealing, bright space and views overlooking the front lawn towards the Abbey.

If accommodation is needed, Northgate House will provide the perfect spot for a good night’s sleep with 33 en-suite rooms including a Full English breakfast as part of your stay with an evening menu available along with a comfortable licensed bar.
