SADDLES, SPA AND CASTLE STAY
Enjoy a luxury riding holiday on Dartmoor staying at the exquisite Bovey Castle Hotel
Treat yourself to a luxury riding holiday on Dartmoor and enjoy a fabulous horseback adventure unlocking the secrets one of the UK’s last wilderness regions. On high quality, forward going horses, you’ll ride through stunning scenery, past prehistoric settlements and through some of Europe’s finest examples of the Bronze Age.
This experience offers the ultimate escape to delight all the senses and reinvigorate mind, body and soul. It combines exhilarating riding with a three-night stay at Bovey Castle and use of their flagship Spa for rejuvenating treatments.
Bovey Castle is a world class hotel in the heart of Dartmoor and the epitome of country house elegance. The hotel is set in a 275 acre estate and offers an 18 hole championship golf course, Spa, falconry, a bistro and the Great Western Restaurant in honour of the Great Western Railway company that first transformed the building from a private house to a world class hotel.
Indulge your passions and awaken your senses
You’ll spend the first full day exploring Dartmoor with one of our experienced guides. You’ll ride across wide open grasslands, passing famous Tors, wooded areas and rugged moorland. Dartmoor offers a huge variety of terrain ideal for adventurous riders.
The second day gives you the opportunity to indulge your passions with a choice of three activities. Enjoy the thrill of the chase with a fast-paced ride led by one of our guides and often accompanied by an expert falconer on horseback. This is a challenging ride at hunting pace that will give you the chance to truly test your skills on horseback and appreciate this magnificent landscape.
Alternatively you can choose to discover more of Dartmoor with quieter day of trail riding, or opt for a more relaxing half-day ride followed by a blissful afternoon in the Spa.
Whether you choose to bring your own horse or hire one of ours, from the moment you arrive you’ll be treated to luxurious hospitality, attention to detail and outstanding service.
