Buckland Abbey was home to Cistercian monks, who built the Abbey and the incredible Great Barn and farmed the then vast estate. The Abbey was later converted into a home by Sir Richard Grenville and then bought by Sir Francis Drake. It now has a combination of furnished rooms and interactive galleries which tell the story of how these two men changed the shape of the house and the fate of the country. Discover the Buckland estate, the meadows, the orchards and the late spring bluebells. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the Tavy Valley and the far-reaching views.
