Hartland Abbey & Gardens

Award-winning Hartland Abbey is a fascinating lived-in family home with stunning interiors, given by Henry VIII to the Keeper of his Wine Cellar whose descendants live here today. Beautiful walled gardens and woodland walks lead to Blackpool Mill and beach, the location for 'Sense and Sensibility', 'The Shell Seekers' and 'The Night Manager' starring Tom Hiddleston, filmed recently.

Spend a day exploring award-winning Hartland Abbey with its stunning architecture and interiors, fascinating collections, beautiful gardens and walks and the warmth and friendliness found only in a cherished family home. Peacocks, donkeys and black sheep wander the beautiful parkland. There are plenty of open spaces for children to explore! Woodland walks lead to the restored Summerhouse in the woods, the Gazebo and the wild Atlantic cove at Blackpool Mill where the BBC filmed scenes for the hugely popular, and Golden Globe winning, 'The Night Manager' by John Le Carre starring Hugh Laurie, Olivia Colman and Tom Hiddleston, shown in spring 2016. BBC 'Sense and Sensibility' starring Dan Stevens and Rosamunde Pilcher's 'The Shell Seekers' were also filmed here. BBC Antiques Roadshow with Fiona Bruce was filmed at Hartland Abbey in 2011. Our 'Filming on the Hartland Abbey Estate since 1934' exhibition is now open displaying stunning images of behind-the-scenes filming and film stars including Alan Bates, Michael Caine, Billy Connolly and Tom Hiddleston. 

 

The impressive interiors span Medieval, Queen Anne, Georgian, Regency and Victorian periods. Of special interest are the three main Reception Rooms, the Alhambra Corridor by Sir George Gilbert Scott and the Gothic Library by Meadows with its Batty Langley fireplace. The circular table by Jupe dominates the Dining Room. Important paintings by artists including Reynolds and Gainsborough furniture porcelain and early photographs. The museum, the Dairy, The 'William Stukeley - Saviour of Stonehenge' Exhibition, documents from 1160 and changing displays of family memorabilia fascinate visitors.

 

The award winning Old Kitchens Tea Room serve homemade light lunches, cream teas, scrumptious cakes and a choice of teas and coffees. Wherever possible organically grown produce from the Walled Gardens is used. The Gift Shop sells a lovely range of cards, books and gifts. Flat car park adjacent to the house for cars and coaches.
