Ends in:03 May 2019 13:00:00 BST (bidding ended)

Presented by The Rt Hon the Lord Gisborough:

Bid for your chance to enjoy a Saturday’s rough shooting for two guns on the Gisborough Estate together with a day’s fishing for two rods on Priory Pond.

The rough shooting is part of the syndicate shoot and an 80+ bird day can be expected, but the earlier in the season, the better the bag. Dogs are welcome.

Also included is the opportunity for two rods to fish for one day on Priory Pond, a restored monk’s pond that was previously part of the Gisborough Priory.

The recently established coarse fishery offers anglers the chance to catch Bream, Roach, Carp and Tench. Guns must stay Friday night at the Gisborough Hall Hotel at the discounted rate of £55 per person bed & breakfast, based on two people sharing a twin or double room (an extra charge will be made if separate rooms are required).

Guests may choose to stay on for a second night at the Hotel. Originally built in 1857, Gisborough Hall Hotel opened its doors to guests in 2002 after being carefully transformed into a 71 room, luxury, 4-star hotel.

Early booking is recommended to ensure the hotel can accommodate you on the dates you wish.

To be taken from the first Saturday in December 2019 – end January 2020, by arrangement with the Estate’s Gamekeeper, Mark Sunley and the Gisborough Hall Hotel.
