Unfortunately Castle Howard is still a private home (albeit a very large one) and therefore is unable to be rented out to shoot parties. There are many great local hotels within a short drive of the Estate. Some of our personal favourites are:
The Worsley Arms Hotel at Hovingham (only 10 minutes away), The Talbot Hotel at Malton (again only 10 minutes away and recently completely refurbished), The Black Swan at Helmsley, The Feversham arms at Helmsley.
Stoneley Woods Manor is a luxurious nine bedroom country house set amidst the rugged beauty of North Yorkshire and lies at the heart of the Wilkinson family’s Bransdale and Pennyholme Estate. Stoneley Woods offers the perfect combination of seclusion and luxury.
Ideal for leisure, sport, business or those once-in-a-lifetime occasions which needs something special, you will have exclusive use of the house. It is a secluded retreat where you can enjoy the pleasures of the North Yorkshire countryside and a chance to enjoy yourself with family and friends.
The House is designed to cater for the specific needs of a shooting party. There is a designated boot room, complete with gun cabinets and a drying room to use after a long day out on the moors.
We estimated that since we started Pennine Sporting (the pre-cursor to William Powell Sporting) many years ago, we have visited over 200 shoots up and down the country (as well as many more abroad) and a large number of fisheries too.
We are sure we will be able to recommend something that meets and exceeds all your expectations. A website can only give you a flavour of what we do, so please do telephone us and we would be only too happy to talk you through exactly what it is you are looking for.
William Powell Sporting is all about providing an exceptional level of personal service ensuring the client receives the right advice on the best sporting opportunities for them and then the implement action of this.
We have now been involved in the sporting world for over 20 years. Not just letting shooting and fishing but actually running sporting properties on a day-to-day basis. This means we have been lucky enough to visit a vast number of sporting locations and every shoot, fishery or deer forest we recommend has been personally visited beforehand. As a result we have an unrivalled knowledge of the places we recommend to our clients.
