" Did you know? It would take over 6,000 cream teas to be sold to pay for repairs to 10 metres of the Cider House garden walls. Every sip, bite and crunch you take in the restaurant helps us to look after Buckland Abbey for the future. "
- Thank you

Walking the Estate

Discover the ancient woodlands here at Buckland Abbey by heading out on one of the 3 circular estate walks. Picking blackberries is always a highlight of Autumn and is a great family activity to enjoy with the kids, the only problem is not eating them all before you get home. Check out our best blackberry spots.
