North Yorkshire, England

The undulating terrain of the Yorkshire Dales provides the perfect features required for presenting high pheasants. The most renowned beat at Castle Bolton is Bolton Ghyll, where the original Holland and Holland High Pheasant tuition video was filmed. These birds will test even the most accomplished shots.

The shoot has been recently taken over by new management (2019) and they have improved many of the previously very good drives into some world beaters. The shoot is based on the deep ghylls that run throughout the estate presenting unbelievable shooting, in an area where time forgot. Lunch is typically in the main house at Bolton Hall which is always very impressive.

The current family have held the seat at Bolton for nearly 1000 years. Mary Queen of Scots was held captive in the castle in 1568.

Heading North via the M1/A1 and then to Leyburn.

Pheasant & partridge

middle of September until January.

Teams will arrive for a 9am start at Bolton Hall for a safety briefing before heading down in the ghyll for the day. Typically the day would be based on between 4-5 drives, stopping for elevenses and refreshments after each drive.

The team at Bolton are very professional and hugely welcoming, its the people here that really set this shoot apart from the rest.

Locally there are some wonderful pubs, hotels and private houses. Notably the Yorebridge, Constable Burton Hall and Easby Hall.
