Hotel Details

This grand Devonshire manor became crown property following the dissolution of the monasteries by Henry VIII in 1539. The monarch later granted the property to his courtier Thomas Wriothesley, the Earl of Southampton, who was a royal favourite. Since then, Boringdon Hall has since had a rather extravagant makeover, giving this stately pile a serious air of perfection, with devotedly designed interiors, 40 sumptuous rooms and suites, a well-stocked bar and two tantalising restaurants – the 3 AA Rosette fine dining Gallery Restaurant, and the Great Hall where lighter bites and afternoon tea is served. 

Five-star Boringdon Hall boasts a variety of private events spaces, two restaurants, fire-lit lounges, enchanting nooks, manicured grounds and complimentary WiFi throughout. On arrival, guests are greeted by the Boringdon Concierge who will assist with your luggage and take it to your room. The hotel also offer a complimentary Valet Service to all their guests.

Gaia Spa is a purpose-built wellness spa set within the grounds of Boringdon, a completely unique space for relaxation and reconnecting with nature, designed with the need for complete wellbeing in mind.
