Your horse is sure-footedly picking its way across the big country of Utah. The Colorado River is curving lazily away towards the horizon. In the distance are flat-topped mountains and canyons that look like they’ve been filmed in Cinemascope. It is almost impossible to stop yourself imagining you’re an old-time cowboy, driving cattle across the range.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, wood-fronted cabins stand beside the mighty Colorado River, their front porches providing epic views. Inside you’re greeted by a handmade four poster bed and a bathroom with an old fashioned, free-standing bathtub. But the plumbing is, of course, thoroughly modern – this is 21st century America after all. Make the Sorrel River Ranch part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to America and you’ll have today’s comforts, in a Wild West setting.

  • It was a complicated and very individual trip, and several changes were made by me during the planning. None of this seemed to worry Ayesha and everything went according to plan.
