Hartland Abbey description
Hartland Abbey and Gardens offers a warm welcome to visitors from the end of March until October. It makes a perfect day out in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Hartland Abbey is a fascinating house with a welcoming feel only experienced in a cherished family home with all its treasures and memorabilia collected over many generations. The beautiful 18thC Walled and Woodland gardens, the walks and the parkland provide visitors with extensive grounds through which to wander and enjoy the stunning valley leading down to the Atlantic Ocean. Children relish the freedom to explore the open spaces and winding paths and to experience the natural environment. They love meeting our donkeys, Nutmeg, Becky and young Snowdrop, the wandering peacocks and our flock of black sheep. The Quiz is a great way to keep children amused indoors on a rainy day!
Built in the 12th Century as a monastery, Hartland Abbey survived longer than any other in the country. In 1539 Henry VIII gifted the Abbey to the Keeper of his Wine Cellar, and today it is the family home of his descendant, Sir Hugh Stucley, his wife, children, grandchildren and dogs! Hartland Abbey is probably the most historically important ancestral home in North Devon containing much of national interest, including architecture and decoration from the Mediaeval, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods.
