About Buckland in the Moor

This is one of Devon's "dream villages" with an attractive small church dating from the 13th century and a cluster of picturesque thickly thatched country cottages with the most "English" of country gardens.

It nestles at the edge of Dartmoor's brooding beauty, perched on slopes above the River Dart. Stone quarried from the moor was used for the church and many of the other local properties.

Slumbering quietly among groves of beeches in sheltered hollows, Buckland is full of charm, and has a quality which defies the passing of the years. It offers a unique experience, the very epitome of the flawless English village.
