The name ‘Boringdon’ comes from the Saxon ‘Burth-Y-Don’ meaning ‘enchanted place on the hill’.
Our 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, 42 sumptuous rooms and suites, a well-stocked bar and two tantalising restaurants – the 3 AA Rosette Àclèaf, Mayflower Brasserie 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.
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 well-being in mind.
