Winter walks

Sheep in the snow at Buckland

This year, Buckland Abbey will be open until 5 January (excluding 24-26 December), and also on weekends until February half term. Join us for woodland walks and warming drinks.

What's open?

There are miles of footpaths to explore around the estate or why not enjoy the peace and quiet of the garden on a frosty day.

Warm up with a hot chocolate or a bowl of soup in the restaurant, or browse for some gifts in the shop.

The estate, garden, shop and restaurant will be open on weekends until February half term when the abbey will be fully open.

The Abbey will be closed between 6th January and 15th February. 

Preparing for spring

From Christmas until February half term, the team will be preparing for the new season with a good old spring clean.
