St. Cuthbert's Conference Centre, Buckfastleigh

Buckfast Abbey Conference

Monks first came to Buckfast nearly 1000 years ago, attracted by the peace and serenity of the location.

Set in the wooded valley of the River Dart, the Abbey’s Conference Centre is an ideal place to hold a seminar, conference or exhibition well away from the hustle and bustle of the office.
Conveniently situated halfway between Plymouth and Exeter these excellent conference and meeting facilities are just off the A38 and set within the grounds of Buckfast Abbey beside the River Dart.

Ample free parking areas are available for delegates and wheelchair lifts and ramps make areas accessible.

The seminar rooms are quiet, comfortable, well equipped and many have views of the river and all enjoy the tranquil, relaxed atmosphere so conducive to concentration and learning.
The friendly and efficient staff ensure the smooth running of the day whilst the rural setting, convenient location and excellent parking, makes St. Cuthbert’s an inspiring venue.
