YEW TREE COTTAGE is located in the heart of some of Britain's best and most sensational shooting grounds. According to Field Sports, the shooting and fishing quarterly, "most of Yorkshire's finest shoots are in the triangle between Malton, Hull and Whitby." If shooting is your thing, then Yew Tree Cottage is your ideal lodge for all the best shooting destinations.
No County has more high bird destinations than North Yorkshire. The quality of the Pheasant and Partridge shoots are legendary.
These are traditional, established, often family owned shoots that have been running over generations. Shooting people in North Yorkshire have been born and brought up with the cult of the high pheasant. Some of the drives of the very best shoots are staggering - humbling, even to the first class shot.
Duncombe Park, Birdsall, Farndale, Garrowby, and the Spaunton Estate are just a small selection of the shoots available to you. Warter Priory and Raisthorpe Manor are two of the best – both are within easy driving distance of Yew Tree Cottage.
Before you join a top class shoot, you need to make sure you are on form. From sporting clays for the beginner to coaching in the field for groups or individuals, there are plenty of venues to learn and improve. We recommend Cotton Dale Shooting Ground in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds. The ground offers facilities for shooters of all standards, and first class equipment. Located 30 minutes from Yew Tree Cottage.
