Bransdale Moor

Driven Grouse Shooting at its best!

Described as the premier Grouse Shooting Estate in the North York Moors area, Bransdale Moor has been completely rejuvenated over the last few years and is now one of the Country’s most prolific Grouse Moors.

The moor provides eight separate driven days Grouse shooting over a huge range of different terrain, which in turn produces some fantastically testing Grouse and the ability to shoot up to a full week on the same Moor, without going over the same ground twice.

Lunch is taken in the Estate’s unique lunch “hut” which is situated in the most accessible point on the moor, depending on the beat being shot that day. This ensures that the minimum time possible is lost driving around the 18,000 acre Estate!

Bransdale Moor also has the added feature of its own private 9 bedroom shooting lodge, Stoneley Woods Manor which can be rented not only for shooting parties but for weddings, family holidays and other celebrations.


Stoneley Woods Manor

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.

Driven Grouse Shooting on Bransdale Moor

I wanted to say how much I enjoyed my day at Bransdale. It was an absolute credit to your team. The keepers were charming and enthusiastic and very keen to hear how North York’s Moors compared and if I was having a good day. Apart from there being masses of grouse and a very beautiful place which has clearly recently had significant investment including rebuilt and new butts (in the right place too!) there was a really positive buzz about the place.

The other thing which was just fantastic was the halting of the beating line at 100 yards out – just as we have discussed – and one or two lads coming forward after a few moments and asking if one needed help. So I think Connie my dog picked about 70 grouse. That in itself made my year! Anyway thank you I had a great day. Please pass on my bravos to your team.
