WHAT WE LOVE...

An Elizabethan manor house on the edge of Dartmoor, south Devon, Boringdon Hall Hotel & Spa has 42 rooms and suites, as well as a multi-million pound state-of-the-art Gaia spa. With a history going all the way back to the Domesday Book, the 16th-century manor offers a restorative retreat full of historical charm. From the carefully crafted interiors and comfy converted stable rooms to the bespoke seating in the Great Hall, Farrow & Ball painted walls, and beautiful period features, guests will be wowed the minute they enter the grounds. Relax in the purpose-built wellness spa - with both an infinity and hydrotherapy pool - before heading to the Acleaf restaurant to sample some of the finest local produce in tasty, modern dishes.

Suited to those after an outstanding dining and spa experience in a rural setting with period charm. The impressive coat of arms of King James I, hung above the enormous fireplace in the Great Hall, adds grand character.

Service & Facilities

The secret cocktail bar, hidden behind a fake wall of old books, is a fun addition to the Great Hall.

Rooms

We love the unique character of the Francis four-poster, with its rich furnishings and original stone fireplace, dating back to 1740. The slipper bath in front of the fireplace makes a stay in this charming space even more opulent.
