Bovey Castle & Liberty Trails Launch Horseriding Adventure Experience

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 unrivalled 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 horseriding 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.

Bovey Castle is a stunning estate with 64 individually designed bedrooms in the original manor house and private mews. It also has 14 contemporary three-storey country lodges within its grounds.

 

As well as having a championship 18-hole golf course, Bovey Castle also boasts a spa where guests can indulge in a luxurious treatment, relax in the indoor heated Art Deco pool, sauna or steam room, or workout in the gym.

 

Bovey Castle provides a range of complimentary activities for guests, as well as a wide choice of outdoor pursuits that can be booked for an additional cost.
