A Hotel in Devon with a Story to Tell…
The history of Boringdon Hall stretches back as far as the Doomsday Book, where one of the earliest mentions of a permanent construction was recorded. The name ‘Boringdon’ comes from the Saxon ‘Burth-Y-Don’ meaning ‘enchanted place on the hill.’ The 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, of course, 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 fine dining Gallery Restaurant, and the Great Hall where lighter bites and afternoon tea is served.
40 sumptuous rooms and suites, a variety of private events spaces, two restaurants, fire-lit lounges, enchanting nooks, manicured grounds and complimentary WiFi throughout. We are also soon to open Gaia Spa - the UK's largest new build spa for 2016, opening in the Summer.
