Deer Stalking


Enjoy Roe deer stalking in the beautiful countryside of Northumberland National Park, with all the facilities required and all skill levels catered for.

Deer Stalking


Traditionally Roe deer stalking is done at dawn and dusk, although depending on the time of year, weather conditions and particularly during the rut (mating season) the secretive roe deer may change its normal activity and be found more active during the day.

Here at Greenlee we carry out our deer stalking in a variety of ways. It can be either on foot, quietly and slowly stalking the terrain. From hides, strategically placed and situated at ground level where the deer stalker patiently waits and views the surrounding area for movement, or from high seats, much like hides, but as the term suggests, set above ground level. It is by using this method that the most interesting movement and behaviour of wildlife is seen, a favourite for photographers and wildlife watchers.


  • At Greenlee House the terrain is mixed and outings can be tailor made to suit the guest's personal preference.
  • We are flexible and stalking is made available 7days a week catering for the individual or for parties of up to four rifles and their guests.
  • Our stalking is conducted with up to two rifles per stalking guide and to a maximum of four rifles.

All skill levels catered for

Novices to this exciting and challenging activity are welcome. The guest does not have to own a rifle or be in possession of a Fire Arm Certificate. The estate rifle facility is freely made available.

There is no shortage of challenging stalking for the more experienced stalker.

Dogs & Kennels

At Greenlee we have bred our own English Springer Spaniels and chocolate Labradors for many years. Our dogs are all pedigree registered under the kennel club name Sweetrigg. The dogs are trained by Jon specifically to accompany deer stalking and are used in the unusual circumstance of a follow up on culled deer being necessary. We currently have six dogs in various stages of training. Patch, Dill, Cleo, Pip, Bess and Meg. Bess and Meg are in what could be called "well earned graceful retirement". We regularly have new puppies to bring along and many of the dogs we have bred are enjoying active lives in the shooting sports community throughout the British Isles.

Your own dogs are welcome and given notice kennels are freely available for guests dogs if required.
