Coverhead is a progressive estate located at the top of Coverdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park at 1100-2000ft. This wonderfully isolated and wild landholding spans three sides of the watershed at the head of the dale. Three thousand acres of open moorland and two thousand acres of diverse moorland edge habitat are farmed and managed in hand. Our core interest is the sustainable and ethical operation of a first class sporting estate whilst delivering a net gain in important ecosystem services both in the locality and the wider catchment.
We offer a range of bespoke shooting and related activities and Hunters' Hall, our onsite modernized 17th century royal hunting lodge, provides comfortable and discreet serviced accommodation with stunning views.
Coverhead is consistently in the vanguard of ground breaking conservation initiatives. Current projects include; Black Grouse Recovery, River Re-winding, Sphagnum Moss Harvesting and Wild Flower Meadow Restoration. You can learn more about our environmental programs below.Overview and History

What a great 36 hours at Coverhead. Tutoring on the Sunday with simulated grouse before the day on the Monday. Stephen's passion for the moor gave us the confidence to enjoy the day totally. Two drives in the morning and two after lunch produced 59.5 brace which for mostly novices was good (I will leave out the shot number!). The accommodation and hospitality were amazing. All in all a fabulous day which I hope, as one of Stephen's "graduates", to repeat next season. As a lady gun, this opportunity has made me realize why guns want to shoot grouse. A very special day!
