Bovey Castle, in Dartmoor National Park, has partnered luxury horseback experience specialist Liberty Trails to offer guests a three-day adventure.
The 64-bedroom luxury country house hotel is giving guests the opportunity to explore some of the beautiful English countryside on horseback, led by a local guide and taking in the heather-clad hills, open moorland, woodland and wild rivers.
Guests are welcome to ride their own horse and use Liberty Trails’ private stable yard or hire an American Quarter Horse that has been bred on Dartmoor.
At the end of each day, the hotel invites guests to return to the castle for a spa treatment before dining in 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.”
Bovey Castle has priced the three-night horseriding break from £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.
