Hartland Abbey is a stunning country house that is the live-in home of the Stucley family. It used to be a monastery and was the last one to be dissolved by Henry VIII who gave it to his butler at Hampton Court. There is a fascinating collection of furniture, paintings, porcelain and photographs showing the house and the families who lived there through the ages. There are several people positioned in various rooms to give you information about the house and to answer questions.
The gardens are beautiful and in April there were an abundance of bluebells, magnolias, camelias, azalias and rhodedendrons. You can also walk down to the sea which is about a mile.
It costs £10 to get in and £5 for just the gardens. If you like country houses and gardens you will not be disappointed, it was a lovely day out.
