Lukesland has 24 acres of woodland gardens, with spectacular autumn colour. There are herbaceous borders planted for late-summer and autumn flowering, with a stream cascading over waterfalls and through ponds in this beautiful valley setting. See the website for Lukesland HERE

Our other stop at Buckfast Abbey, a working monastery where a community of Benedictine monks live self-sufficiently, gives time to see the Abbey, gardens and shops, and to have lunch.

At the heart of the site is the Abbey Church, a spiritual haven surrounded by gardens, pictured above.

Within the Abbey precincts are a bookshop and gift shop, and the Monastic Shop which sells products made by nuns and monks across Europe.

The Grange Restaurant serves tea and homemade cakes and a range of hot meals and light snacks.

Cost £16 for coach and admission.  Please ring Rose Mock  01297 34733 or Jenny Harding 01297 444034 to book. See the website for Buckfast Abbey HERE.
