Cider House

Minutes from neighbouring Cornwall and nestled in the breathtaking and utterly secluded Tamar Valley on a 700 acre National Trust estate, oozing with history, sits a beautiful house, lavishingly restored with contemporary style and comfort. Cider House at Buckland Abbey is a perfect confection of history, beauty, style, luxury and comfort, the ultimate in boutique bed and breakfast. An enormous amount of love and care has been lavished on this historic home and you can feel it as you step through the door.  Here, even the honey is homemade. 

Your Hosts

Bertie and Bryony had very strict rules about renovating Cider House, they had to love everything they chose, and they clearly do! The warmth of their hospitality is palpable and the guest book confirms that relaxation and indulgence really does start from the moment guests arrive. The Cider House experience is "a piece of heaven" for guests and an idyllic home for their young family.

Food and Drink

Inhouse cuisine: Served in the light-filled living room with extravagant views of the gardens, breakfast at Cider House is a very home grown affair. The full Devon breakfast features bacon and sausages home reared from their own free range saddleback pigs, eggs from their rare breed chickens who live in the Abbey's Kitchen Garden and fruit and vegetables, where available, from the Kitchen Garden and from Tamar Valley Fruiterers.  Honey comes from the bees which are lovingly cared for in the field above the house. Packed lunches are available on request. 

Eating out: In addition to the Drake Manor in the village and The Who'd Have Thought It, both under a 5 minute drive, there is a plethora of choice for eating out. Bertie and Bryony are very happy to make recommendations and reservations for you.
