About us

Abbey Manor Developments Ltd

Company History

Abbey Manor is among the leading private property businesses in Southern England with a £200 million development pipeline stretching from Cornwall to Essex. Our company has associated property investment, business centre & conferencing and waste management business interests.

The Abbey Manor history dates back to 1870 with the establishment of Somerset builder E.R. Bartlett. The company incorporated in 1913 and grew consistently as a regional building contractor for the next 50 years. In the 1960s, the company moved into property development. This has remained the core business activity to this day.

As property developers, not traders, Abbey Manor undertakes the full development process from blank sheet of paper to completed building with a team of project, development and construction managers. The company produces results by focusing development activities through effective project and financial management and building long-term relationships with our customers and partners.

To date, Abbey Manor has completed some 7 million sq.ft of commercial and residential development. The foundation of this activity has been an extensive portfolio of both bespoke design and build and speculative employment land use based development projects.

The company has also completed a range of industrial, office, warehouse & distribution, residential, retail, leisure, infrastructure and mixed-use projects in Avon, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Essex, Somerset, Sussex and Wiltshire. It maintains a significant bank of both residential and commercial land with outline planning consents.

Remaining privately owned and funded, Abbey Manor is a very different company today than at its origin in the 19th Century, whilst retaining its core values of teamwork, creativity, a drive for excellence and an ability to complete projects with an entrepreneurial spirit.
