Boringdon Hall Hotel & Spa, Plymouth, Devon
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.
A stay wouldn't be complete without taking a trip across the River Tamar on the historic foot-ferry to the spectacular stately home of Mount Edgcumbe.
The hotel is in the south Devon countryside between Plymouth and Dartmoor National Park.

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.

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.
