Explore the fascinating Buckland Abbey Garden A site brimming with history, Buckland Abbey Garden and Estate tells a 700-year-old tale that starts with the Cistercian monks who made this beautiful Devon spot their home and involves the great sailors Grenville and Drake. Besides the wonderful abbey, which is half museum and half house, you'll discover woodlands, orchards and meadows to wander through at your leisure, all looking over the dramatic Tavy Valley. Grab a leaflet showing you the way-marked trails which are a dazzle of colour through the seasons (don't miss the bluebell show each spring). Pop into the cider house where the herbaceous borers offer up interest seasonally or head off in search of the secret wild garden.
