Are you looking for fabulous accommodation in the Dartmoor National Park or an unforgettable dinning experience or even great pub food in Buckfastleigh?

Tucked inside the Dartmoor National Park, and nestled beautifully into the banks of the River Dart, The Abbey Inn, an old quarry house, remains completely hidden from view of the road. Yet from its large car park, looking down the landscaped drive towards the Buckfast Bridge, a three story eighteenth century building, proudly overlooking the River Dart. Despite its short distance from the A38 and cities of Plymouth, Torquay, Totnes and Exeter, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were a million miles away.

Yet we are ideally located, with the world famous Buckfast Abbey just a 2 minute walk away and in the Dartmoor National Park, the Abbey Inn is idealy situated for all the local attractions, including: •- Miniature Pony Centre •- Pennywell Farm •- Otter Sanctuary •- South Devon Steam Railway •- Dartmoor National Park •- Buckfast Abbey •- Fishing and Kayaking on the River Dart The Abbey Inn on the edge of the Dartmoor National park is therefore ideally situated for holiday makers and tourists, as well as for businessmen working in the surrounding areas. At the heart of the Abbey Inn is her restaurant and traditional bar, no pub TV's or gaming machines, just an open fire, great food, award winning beer, Cask Marque Real Ales, excellent wines and the constant flow of water past the extensive river side terrace. Through the bar into the restaurant a traditional English dining experience awaits, with our chefs offering homemade food, freshly cooked and locally sourced.

And for those wanting a relaxing get away the Abbey Inn has eight well appointed en-suite rooms overlooking the River Dart, perfect for a quick break, business trip or extended vacation.
