700-year-old building with fine 16th century great hall, associated with Elizabethan seafarers Drake and Grenville. Tucked away in its own secluded valley above the River Tavy, Buckland was originally a small but influential Cistercian monastery. The house, incorporating the remains of the 13th century abbey church, has rich associations with Sir Francis Drake and his seafaring rival, Sir Richard Grenville, containing much interesting memorabilia from their time. There are exhibitions on Buckland’s history as well as a magnificent monastic barn, herb garden, delightful estate walks and the Oxyard Gallery. Recent developments include new interpretative exhibitions and displays, a hand-crafted plasterwork ceiling in the Drake Chamber, the creation of an Elizabethan garden and the Cot Lane charcoal burning area.

Arts & Crafts-style house with elegant Art Deco-influenced interior, set amid gardens in a spectacular coastal setting.

Built in a stream-fed valley on a beautiful stretch of the NT-protected South Devon coastline, the house was designed in 1925 for Rupert and Lady Dorothy D’Oyly Carte, who created its luxuriant garden.

This has year-round interest with a wide variety of rare and exotic plants, water features and a gazebo with fine views.
