                      Pocket Guide: Buckland Abbey Buckland Abbey Hotels

                      What's so wonderful about a holiday in Devon is that there is a such a great variety of things to enjoy here. From brilliant beaches on the English Riviera to the dramatic wilds of Dartmoor and a rich cultural heritage in cities like Plymouth and towns like Torquay, there's always plenty to experience. Devon is particularly rich in historic monuments, and when you're staying at a Devon hotel or B&B you should certainly pay a visit to Buckland Abbey, one of the finest of its kind in the country.

                      Visit Buckland Abbey from Devon Hotels

                      Buckland Abbey was founded by Cistercian monks back in 1278. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries under Henry VIII it was converted into a private house and was the home of Sir Francis Drake from 1581 until 1596. Many of the original monastic buildings have survived and today can be enjoyed in a lovely garden setting. The enormous tithe barn is a unique survivor from the 14th Century. Another top attraction is the museum, part of the house which has been turned into homage to Drake, his life and times. The memorabilia here include maps, paintings and many other objects that will fascinate and entrance anyone interested in those times of Queen Bess, the Spanish Armada and the legend of Drake's Drum.

                      A local legend has it that when Drake bought Buckland Abbey he rebuilt it with the aid of the Devil in just three nights. As punishment he was condemned to drive a black hearse across Dartmoor on moonless nights forever, pulled along by a team of black, headless horses. The drum which visitors can see in the abbey building was instructed to be left here by Drake as he died far away in Panama in 1596. Another tenacious legend says that whenever England is in danger Drake will sail again up the river beating his drum to keep evil at bay. It was supposedly heard during the Battle of Trafalgar when Napoleon threatened invasion, and again as the Nazi menace loomed in 1939, so you never know do you?
