Gidleigh Park and Liberty Trails have teamed up to provide an unforgettable escape on Dartmoor which combines two days of progressive riding across magnificent scenery with a luxurious three night dining experience in five star accommodation.
Gidleigh Park, a Relais Chateau hotel, is in a stunning location on Dartmoor and is home to the much loved two Michelin starred celebrity chef Michael Caines MBE. It offers one of the finest dining experiences in the UK and staying there is a five star experience of exceptional luxury.
Liberty Trails specialises in guided riding safaris on beautiful, quality well-trained horses across Dartmoor, where there are breathtaking views in every direction. Guests enjoy unforgettable days in the saddle riding across stunning landscapes and can bring their own horses if preferred, which will be stabled in the peace and seclusion of a secure privately owned yard.
Each riding package is tailored to suit individual riding abilities with differing ride lengths adapted for those wanting shorter relaxing days. For those wanting more of a challenge, a two-day progressive ride of up to 17 miles is a favourite. 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 are 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 safari lunch, a riders packed lunch or a lunch at a Dartmoor Inn is provided and as a memento, guests are given a selection of photos capturing the highlights of the ride taken by a professional equestrian photographer.
