Boringdon Hall Hotel, Colebrook, Plymouth PL7 4DP
Period Features, Luxury Gaia Spa, Àclèaf Restaurant
Known as the ‘enchanted place on the hill’, Boringdon Hall Hotel & Spa offers a truly exceptional experience from the moment you step through the door. From its luxe four-poster bedrooms to its fine dining restaurant and award-winning spa, this 16th-century manor house hotel has it all. Boringdon Hall is conveniently located between Plymouth and Dartmoor, making it the perfect backdrop for romantic weekend getaways and relaxing staycations.
Overlooking the Great Hall is Àclèaf Restaurant, which is an absolute must for anyone who appreciates good food. This fine dining restaurant oozes sophistication and Head Chef Scott Paton’s signature dishes showcase inventive British fare, using the finest Devon ingredients.
A stay at Boringdon Hall wouldn’t be complete without making the most of its £5 million state-of-the-art Gaia Spa. This exclusively adult retreat offers an extensive range of nourishing treatments and therapeutic rituals, using both hot and cool water and sumptuous Gaia skincare products (read more here). Start to unwind in the hydrotherapy swimming pool – it’s heated to a perfect 30 degrees – and let the waterfalls massage the tension out of your shoulders and neck. The pool extends outside, which is wondrous when the sun is shining and you can enjoy views of the wild Dartmoor countryside from the water.
Maverick Tip: Rooms are available from 3pm but if you arrive early you can make use of the Gaia Spa facilities from 12pm or book one of Boringdon’s hugely popular afternoon teas.
