Stay at this gorgeous country manor house on the edge of Dartmoor with your friend in tow.
Situated in south Devon, six-miles north east of Plymouth and eight-miles from Dartmoor – Boringdon Hall provides the perfect rural base, set apart from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet just a stones’ throw away to explore the nearby countryside and local towns. Dogs are welcomed in 23 courtyard rooms, as well as the Executive Suite where they will find a cosy bed and some well-deserved treats.
Invite your pal to join you for the pawfect escape with a dedicated Pampered Pooch break, allowing you to explore together with exhilarating walks across the moors before retreating back to the comfort of your room; the package includes an overnight stay with an arrival glass of champagne and a three-course meal for the humans. Your pal will be spoilt with a blanket, bowl and treats, along with an arrival snack, doggie tapas for their evening meal and a dog-walking guide for the surrounding areas.
With its unique history that dates back to the Domesday Book, the 16th century property offers a restorative escape full of historic charm and unique character. Think carefully curated interiors and converted stable rooms with heritage features. Whilst your furry friend relaxes back in the room, take time out for yourself in the purpose-built wellness spa with an infinity pool and gorgeous outdoor space.
Surrounded by nature, there are plenty of outdoor spaces at Boringdon Hall for your dog to enjoy, with an abundance of places to explore from the doorstep; just a short drive will take you and your beloved friend to some of Devon’s most spectacular walking spots. We fell in love with Burrator Reservoir, a 20-minute drive away – the beautiful five-mile walk will take you just over two hours from the village of Sheepstor, following easily accessible paths on a circular walk around the reservoir.
There are insane views from the top of Sheepstor and the reservoir itself is surrounded by beaches and woodland, perfecting for picnicking. We also enjoy Plymbridge Woods, just five-minutes’ drive from Boringdon Hall– from the car park, there are various walking trails through the woods, along the river, following an old railway track for a number of miles north of Yelverton, Dartmoor.
If, like Partridge, your dog can’t get enough of the beach, then there’s a great coastal walk at Wembury – 25-minutes’ drive away, it’s set in an Area of Outstanding Beauty as well as being a site for special Scientific Interest for its marine life. Perfect for sunbathing and rockpooling, there’s also a two-mile stretch taking in the Plymouth coastline. For somewhere really picturesque, Noss Mayo is a charming spot all year-round, located just eight-miles away – here you will find a brilliant circular coastal walk, boasting stunning views and woodlands, leading down to the estuary edge, where you will find the heart of the pretty village.
We love the Ship Inn for something refreshing at the end of the route. There’s also Plymouth seafront – five miles away – and Saltram House, just a two and-a-half miles from the hotel, where you will find a circular route following parkland and woodland with stunning views of the estuary and Blaxton saltmarsh – all part of the Saltram estate, the woodland flowers are particularly beautiful in spring time.
Though dogs are not permitted in the Mayflower Brasserie or the Spatisserie, they are welcome to join you for supper in Grenville or for a themed afternoon tea and an inventive cocktail menu in the Great Hall.
If your pals are happy to relax back in the room, then the Michelin-starred Àclèaf restaurant offers a memorable experience; the four-course menu brims with contemporary dishes with playful elements – including a nostalgic influence and a unique game – showcasing inventive British cuisine, paired with a brilliant wine flight. In contrast, opt for the cosy Mayflower Brasserie for low key dining with fresh, seasonally-focussed menus. During summer months, enjoy a pop-up champagne camper on the lawn.
Boringdon Hall charges £20 per dog, per night.
Boringdon Hall is a favourite spot, providing a pampered stay for us four -legs with comfiest rooms, lots of delicious treats and brilliant outdoor spaces to sniff and enjoy. It was great to be so close to the moor and the coast, with some incredible walks on the doorstep. The dog-loving staff were super-friendly and my humans left feeling very relaxed – meaning there’s a good chance that we will be back!
