Bovey Castle has partnered luxury horseback experience specialist Liberty Trails to offer thrilling Horse Riding Holidays in Dartmoor National Park
Guests staying at the stunning country manor house hotel can now escape from it all and explore some of the most rugged, unspoilt countryside in England on horseback.
Led by a local guide with unrivaled knowledge of the area, guests will explore heather-clad hills, open moorland, ancient woodland, wild rivers, standing stones and world-famous granite rock formations.
Guests are welcome to ride their own horse and use Liberty Trails’ first-class private stable yard or hire an American Quarter Horse that has been bred on Dartmoor.
At the end of each day, riders return to beautiful Bovey Castle for a reviving spa treatment before indulging in the superb food and hospitality of one of Bovey’s restaurants.
General Manager Greg Fehler said: “Bovey Castle is renowned for the fantastic range of outdoor pursuits and activities available to guests and we’re delighted to be working with Liberty Trails to offer yet another unforgettable experience. Dartmoor provides one of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK and easily compares with some of the best riding destinations in the world.”
The three-night horse-riding break starts at £1,500 per person based on selected departures during 2015. The price includes three nights at Bovey Castle with breakfast, evening meal plus two spa treatments.
Also included is livery for three nights for guests’ own horse or two full days’ horse hire with a full day guided trail riding on the first day and options on the second. These include: a full day ride at hunting pace accompanied by an expert falconer; or a full day guided trail or half-day ride with spa treatment in the afternoon. Lunches and transfers between the hotel and stables are also included.
