Worth Getting Out of Bed For...

Things to do in Devon

Situated on the edge of the idyllic Dartmoor National Park and just 10 minutes from the vibrant marine city of Plymouth, Boringdon Hall Hotel is perfectly positioned for business or pleasure. Below are some of our recommendations.


Dartmoor National Park

Encompassing nearly 400sq miles of rugged, breath-taking moorland, Dartmoor never feels crowded. Purple, heather clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rushing rivers and obscure stone tors shape the landscape. Pack your walking boots to explore rolling valleys, bogs and wetland, waterfalls, eerie forests and lonely ruins by foot. Cycling, fishing, horse-riding and white water kayaking are also available.

Location: 4.4 miles from Boringdon Hall and 15 minutes by car.

Passionate about walking? Join one of the many walks led by Moorland Guides.


Saltram – National Trust

Still a largely undiscovered treasure, and the result of centuries of sophistication and extravagance, Saltram offers a fascinating insight into country-estate life throughout the centuries. Fine Robert Adam interiors and beautiful collections bring the 'age of elegance' to life at Saltram. Surrounding the house is a beautiful 20+ acre garden, in which there are many plants of interest year round as well as historic statuary, follies and an orangery.

Location: 2.5 miles from Boringdon Hall and 17 minutes by car.

Passionate about heritage? Devon alone has 25 National Trust properties and, if you fancy sneaking over the border to Cornwall, there’s a gorgeous selection there too. View our Top 5 Unmissable National Trust properties...


Boutique Shopping

Tavistock to the north of Plympton is a charming town with a good range of boutiques and high street shops as well as a pannier market. The South Hams is also particularly gifted with its pretty villages and wide estuaries – Dartmouth and Salcombe being the most famous. Kingsbridge to the south of Boringdon Hall has a lovely cobbled fore street, lots of independent boutiques and a friendly, relaxed vibe.

Location: Various, all within 60 minutes’ drive from Boringdon Hall.

Passionate about shopping? Head down to Plymouth Barbican for gorgeous shops and local seafood.


Boringdon Park Golf Club

With 18 holes of stunning golf, sculpted to embrace the natural contours of the land, golfers love the challenge this course poses. Boringdon Park Golf Club has been constructed to a high standard, and the greens have been built to USGA specification.

Location: Located in Plympton, 1 mile from Boringdon Hall and 5 minutes by car.

Passionate about golf? Boringdon Hall is also close to a bounty of other courses including St Mellion.


Other Pursuits

Hot-air ballooning with South West Balloon Flights,  Lee Mill (01404 821552), shop ‘til you drop at Drake Circus in Plymouth (01752 223030), clay-pigeon shooting at The Big Shoot (0844 745 5008), horse-riding can be arranged at Cheston Farm (01364 649461) and helicopter tours of Devon with AH Helicopter Services (07701 067256) all come highly recommended.
