Shooting Parties


With nearly 5,000 acres of highland heather, our nearby shooting partner has some of the best-driven grouse shooting with 80 brace days from 1st September to November.  Please enquire for further details

The Talbot is ideally located and equipped for your shooting party.  We work closely with Raisethorpe Manor who organise game shooting and simulated game shooting on their 1000 acre estate.  This estate boasts fantastic terrain, enabling challenging shooting for the experienced shooters and easier shooting with stunning views for the non-experienced.

The Talbot is perfectly located for shooing parties, not least due to its proximity to several shooting estates, but also because of its enviable facilities which include:  26 bedrooms, Gun Room with 2 x 24 gun safes, Drying Room, Boot Drying Rack, Dog-Friendly, Large On-site Car Park, Feasting Facilities

In 2019 The Talbot renovated and restored to highlight its history as a traditional coaching inn, and is now a relaxed, friendly, and rustic, serving fantastic tasty food and drinks.

Location-wise, the hotel is ideally situated within easy access to some of the best shooting in Yorkshire, only 18 miles from York, 37 miles from Hull and 29 miles from Whitby.

“With most of Yorkshire’s finest shoots in or around the triangle between Malton, Hull and Whitby…there can be no county with more high bird destinations than Yorkshire”
