Hartland Abbey

Hartland Abbey was built in the 12th century, remaining as a monastery for 400 years and passing through the female line three times, never having been sold. It contains collections of pictures, furniture and porcelain which have accumulated over many generations. It has a friendly and lived-in atmosphere, so often absent in many of our nation’s historic houses, a point continually remarked upon by those who visit us. Gertrude Jekyll was a frequent guest at the Abbey and was instrumental in helping Lady Stucley, create the intimate paths and small terraces of the Baronet’s Bog Garden.
