Bucklawren – an ancient tradition of hospitality
Bucklawren is a working arable and beef farm of 400 acres. It lies on an ancient Celtic site, and the original manor is mentioned in the 11th-century Domesday Book. In medieval times there was a nunnery here, but it was destroyed in the 16th century by Henry VIII during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
Robert and Jean Henly with their two daughters took over Bucklawren Farm in 1987. They decided to offer farmhouse bed and breakfast accommodation, and in 1997 they won the prestigious West Country Tourist Board Farm Holiday Award. In 2015 Robert and Jean took a step back from the business and their daughter Jo Eastley and her family took over the running of the business.
Bucklawren became more and more popular thanks to its peaceful location and friendly welcome, and so more holiday accommodation was needed. As with many West Country farms, some of Bucklawren’s old stone barns and stable blocks had become impractical for modern farming practices. Rather than allow these beautiful buildings to fall into disrepair, Robert and Jean decided to bring them new life and purpose by converting them so that holidaymakers could enjoy their very special historic atmosphere.
In 1991 they converted a former stable block into three self catering holiday cottages. This was followed by the conversion of a two storey barn into a spacious four bedroom holiday cottage (The Hayloft) and finally in 2000 the conversion of a further barn into The Lodge cottage. The design and materials were carefully chosen to ensure sympathetic conversion and to faithfully retain the exterior and interior character of the lovely old buildings.
