Fodor's Review

A 13th-century Cistercian monastery, Buckland Abbey became the home of Sir Francis Drake in 1581. Today it's filled with mementos of Drake and the Spanish Armada and has a restaurant. The house is 6 miles south of Tavistock; to get here, take A386 south to Crapstone and then head west.
