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
We offer a range of bespoke sporting opportunities and related activity packages: Driven and Walked Up Grouse, Driven and Walked Up Wild Game, Coverhead Introduction to Driven Grouse Courses, Simulated Grouse Practise and various Long Range Rifle Experiences.
Shot at Coverhead yesterday and had a great time. It was my first time shooting grouse and it was brilliant!!
The weather was not looking good first thing but we headed out around 11am and Stephen and his team worked their socks off to try and get as many birds over the guns as they could. He even put on an extra drive at the end of the day to show as many birds as he could. The weather and wind direction were against us but it was a fantastic day and everyone worked so hard for the guns.
We all had loaders who were also fantastic, not only with loading but advice and tips throughout the day.
Stephens passion for the moor, shooting and conservation is a lesson to us all and I will be going back as soon as I can!
