Snilesworth, United Kingdom
Red deer, French partridge, Grouse, Pheasant

This mixed estate extends to over 11,000 acres which encompasses a three day Grouse moor. In recent years this moor has smashed not only its own bag, beat and other records but also North Yorkshire Moor records, which is down to the dedication of the highly professional team here.Lunch is taken in the revamped shoot lodge and can be taken either in the middle or at the end of the day. The shoot is only 20 minutes’ drive from Helmsley

Snilesworth low ground shoot is on the edge of this record breaking moor. Supporting over 12 different drives, the pheasants and partridges are of very good quality and all set amongst some of the most stunning scenery in Yorkshire. The Arnsgill partridge drive is famous in an area already known for great drives. The flash flooding in 2004 scoured out the base of the gill; the guns now stand considerably lower than they did before and the birds are now even higher! Due in part to the great shooting and well organised days but also because the shoot staff are particularly friendly and welcoming, Snilesworth is somewhere where teams return year on year.

    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.

    I just wanted to let you both know what an amazing day we had on the moor loved every minute of it even in the rain! I've constantly heard the expression that power boat racing is like standing in the shower throwing £50 notes around but I really think my first day on the grouse was not much different! Really appreciate the assistance and support you both gave me, the loader provided (Nigel) was really helpful very calm and experienced liked him a lot. You are running a great shoot perfectly organised could not have been better.

    You're the best! For my first driven grouse experience, I couldn't have been more pleased. Your company was extremely professional and everyone on the staff was friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. All the details were taken care of--I just had to focus on my shooting. If you are looking for the complete package done right, this is the team to use." I had a marvellous time and hope to see all of you again.

    The venues are always great but Wm Powell people are what makes the big difference.

    I had the good fortune of shooting a day of late season grouse at Snilesworth in October of 2014. William Powell put on a great day. We started with drinks and dinner at the Black Swan with our own living room and Katherine making sure our night was superb. The living room had the wood burning fireplace, the bar and our dining table with decanters and wine awaiting. Everyone had a nice dinner and retired to be greeted with a full breakfast to be ready for the day ahead. On my shoot day the entire William Powell team was present. We had three drives prior to lunch. Chris Maxted was my loader and made sure I was looked after and encouraged. James Chapel was there as well to give encouraging words and insight. We had a great lunch in Bob's shoot box and enjoyed some game off of Snilesworth. The afternoon the conditions were a bit tougher with higher winds and some rain. It was a truly great day. Many thanks to William Powell, Mark Osbourne and especially Bob Cieslukowski.
