Enjoy a unique, luxury and bespoke riding holiday
staying at the exquisite Five Star Bovey Castle Hotel
Treat yourself to a unique, luxury and bespoke riding holiday in England and enjoy a fabulous horseback adventure unlocking the secrets of Dartmoor, one of the UK’s last wilderness regions. On high quality, forward going horses, you’ll be guided on horseback through stunning scenery, past prehistoric settlements and through some of Europe’s finest examples of the Bronze Age.
Dartmoor is the highest, oldest and least populated area in the South West and 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 and falconry. It has an award winning bistro and restaurant, called The Great Western, 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.
An exhilarating horseback adventure for accomplished riders
This is a unique break especially for accomplished confident riders looking for an exceptional experience on horseback. Groups are exclusive and intimate, with a minimum of two riders making this the ideal getaway for couples or small groups of friends. You’ll need to be comfortable riding forward going well schooled horses at all paces in wide open spaces.
