Helbeck has everything. In addition to being in stunning countryside at the head of the Eden Valley it is one of those rare places where you can shoot grouse on the moor, rocket partridges off the middle ground and pheasants in the woods lower down and just because its lower down don’t think the pheasants are any less challenging – they aren’t. And if you still haven’t had enough there are some very interesting ponds in the hills where you might find teal flighting in.
Keeper Ben and his merry team are most welcoming and each time I have been there the day has always been well executed but with a nice relaxed atmosphere. To my way of thinking Helbeck has that little bit of magic that makes it a very special place.
