Holidays to the West Country

For the outward-bound type, look no further than the West Country - watersports and hiking are in the mix here along with a great art and music scene for culture vultures. There are English country houses and gardens aplenty and gourmets will delight in the fresh fare from the sea.

We can arrange private access to the stone circle at Stonehenge to get up close with these fascinating feats of ancient engineering. We would recommend visiting the nearby (and less well known) Avebury Stones with our local driver-guides. Pop into Salisbury Cathedral to see one of the best preserved copies of the Magna Carta before our specialist guides whisk you off to a local pub for a traditional lunch or even a Michelin starred feast.

Head to the beautiful region of Dartmoor for a private horse-riding experience to exceed all expectations. Explore the moors, babbling brooks and rocky crags from a height as you ride with your local guide. The rugged landscape of the National Park is so beautiful; it was used for Steven Spielberg's WW1 epic, War Horse. Stay in the best hotels of the region, including a castle and then ride (for as long or as little as you please) across the ancient lands.

Further South, Cornwall is the perfect destination for families. Enjoy pottering on some of the country's best beaches before exploring the space-age Eden project and the mysterious Tintagel Castle - rumoured to be the birth place of Arthur, of King Arthur & Merlin fame. St Michael's Mount is a beautiful fortified town located on a tidal island which can only be reached at low tide. Gardens groups will love the Lost Gardens of Heligan, restored botanical gardens first created in the 18th century. The county of Cornwall offers a lovely sense of remoteness and tranquillity - perfect for any holiday!
