Gidleigh Park links up with Liberty Trails to provide a horseback safari and gastronomic adventure on Dartmoor
Liberty Trails and Gidleigh Park have teamed up to provide an unforgettable experience on Dartmoor which combines two days of adventure riding across magnificent scenery with a luxurious three night stay and dining experience in a world class hotel
Gidleigh Park is in a stunning location on Dartmoor and is home to the much loved two Michelin starred celebrity chef Michael Caines MBE offering one of the finest dining experiences in the UK. Staying there is also a five star experience of exceptional luxury.
Liberty Trails specialises in providing guided riding adventures on Dartmoor where there are breathtaking views in every direction leaving guests wide-eyed and inspired. Guests can either ride beautiful, quality, sure footed American Quarter Horses with western saddles. Alternatively they can bring their own horses if preferred, and enjoy the peace and seclusion of a secure privately owned purpose built stable yard in the middle of Dartmoor.
Each riding package is bespoke and tailored to suit individual riders and different ride lengths are available for those wanting shorter relaxing days. For those wanting more of a challenge and to experience more of Dartmoor, a two-day ride of up to 17 miles per day with the horses spending one night in an ‘out post’ is offered. Groups are exclusive, taking a maximum of four riders at a time and are specifically for experienced and confident riders wanting to ride over wide- open spaces and varying terrain at differing speeds.
At the end of each day’s ride guests will be taken back to Gidleigh Park to enjoy three different dining experiences including a light supper, à la carte dinner and the acclaimed eight– course signature menu.
Prices for the three night stay for two people start from £4,030. The package also includes early morning tea or coffee, newspapers in your room and cooked or continental breakfasts and full afternoon tea on arrival.
On each riding day a sumptuous safari lunch, a riders packed lunch or a pub lunch is provided and as a memento of this highly treasured experience a selection of photos capturing the highlights of the ride taken by a professional equestrian photographer.
