River Garden Cottage

Positioned in a quite private lane, just off Buckfastleigh high street, River Garden Cottage provides a bright, relaxing, characterful home, ideal for exploring the wonderful Devon countryside by day before returning for cosy evenings in by the log burning fire.

We had a most enjoyable week in this delightful cottage, tucked away just off the main street in Buckfastleigh. The cottage is small but well appointed, with everything one needs. Our only minor criticism is that hanging and storage space for clothes etc. is rather...More

About the neighbourhood

A small market town on the old route between Exeter and Plymouth, Buckfastleigh was a centre for the wool trade for most of its history. The mid 19th century was the town's most prosperous period, when there were seven mills active, supplemented by some coaching inns for travellers to and from Plymouth.

At Buckfast, about a mile to the north, is Buckfast Abbey. Founded in the 11th century by King Canute, the Abbey has a fascinating history and is now an active Benedictine Monastery - the only monastery in the UK open to the public.

From the station you can catch a steam train on the South Devon Railway heritage line along the Dart Valley to Totnes or the Buckfast Heritage Bus to the Abbey and the town. Next to the station is Buckfast Butterflies and Dartmoor Otters fo...
