England's Countryside RideDartmoor, located in southwestern England is the land of endless fields, hills, bogs and a multitude of folklore and good stories.

Its genuinely breathtaking and varied scenery has changed very little for thousands of years. With its ancient woodlands, high granite tors, winding valley bottoms, sparkling streams and vast tracts of rolling moorland, at more than 368 square miles it is the largest and wildest area of open country in the south of England. You might see a solitary standing stone, a circle of granite boulders or an ancient cross. Where ever you look there will be evidence of how man has farmed and lived on Dartmoor for 12,000 years, leaving a mark on a landscape that is as rich and diverse in its tradition and folklore as it is in its flora and fauna.

Known for it myths and legends, it is reputedly the haunt of “pixies”, a headless horseman, a mysterious pack of “spectral hounds”, and a large black dog, among others.  It is also well known for its “tors” – hills topped with outcrops of bedrock which are usually rounded boulder like formations.

This area has inspired a number of artists and writers such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie and Rosamunde Pilcher. And if the landscape looks familiar, it might just remind you of the Quidditch World Cup final from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire or from War Horse – mostly as they were filmed there.

Each day you will saddle up (English and Western saddles are available) and ride out with the group. The days of riding will be fun, covering a fair amount of terrain, before retiring to Saddletor Cottage each evening. Saddletor Cottage has four double bed en suite rooms and can sleep as many as eight people in shared room accommodation. This week is sure to be lovely, with crisp mornings and warm afternoons.
