Please note: it remains unclear whether we will be able to return to Buckfast Abbey for the November 2021 course (we hope so!). And if we can, whether this will be for one or both days of the course. So please bear this in mind when considering travel and accommodation (or not).
We are very much looking forward to returning to the lovely Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre, Devon when COVID restrictions allow. The venue provides great facilities for our course with ample parking and is wheelchair friendly. Their highly regarded buffet lunch and refreshments keep candidates and examiners going through a busy course. All this in the lovely grounds and gardens of Buckfast Abbey overlooking the river Dart.
Many candidates choose to stay locally in this rural area of South Devon, making it something of an exam revision retreat.
Finding the Buckfast Abbey Conference Centre:
Buckfast Abbey, Northwood Ln, Buckfastleigh TQ11 0EG
N.B. Importantly the ‘Conference Centre’ and the Abbey itself are in different parts of a large site. Exiting the A38 onto the A384, turn right at the small roundabout onto Buckfast Road. Continue and turn left at the next small roundabout. Drive past the entrance to the Abbey itself and take the following right turn onto Higher Mill Lane. Continue to a T-junction with Grange Road and turn right. Take the next left onto Northwood Lane, the large conference centre car park is 50yds down this lane.
