Our main aim at Greenlee House is to offer affordable deerstalking to which there is the added benefit of good quality affordable accommodation and excellent home cooking, all with the sole intention of giving our guest's a memorable and enjoyable experience.
Deer stalking holidays at Greenlee can be tailored to the guest's wishes. We are able to offer from the minimum of one nights stay with an evening and a morning's deer stalking outing to a weeks visit or over with the number of stalking outings to suit the guest's preference and budget.
Novices to the sport are very welcome, Jon is happy to give any guidance you require - rifles can be supplied and he will accompany/guide you on your outings.

An example of one of our meals is:

For those who prefer, there is also a very comfortable self-catering cottage incorporating a spacious living, dining and kitchen area complete with a wood burning stove, television and DVD facilities and there is a bathroom and double bedroom. It is also possible to increase the cottage accommodation by making available a further two double bedrooms en-suite. This enables family or group holidays to be mixed with stalking or any of the many country pursuits available.
The cost for the self catering cottage for one week with one double bedroom is £590.00, there are a further two spacious double rooms available at an additional £120.00 per room. The double beds in the extra rooms can be easily converted into two single beds at the guests prior request at the time of booking. Both of these rooms have television and DVD facilities.
Depending on availability and time of year it is often possible to stay in the cottage for a 3 night self-catering break or if guest's prefer they are welcome to stay on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis where meals are served with Jon and Andrea in their dining room overlooking stunning views of Greenlee lough (Northumbrian name for lake, pronounced 'luff' or 'loff') and beyond to Hadrians Wall and the Pennine hills.
A variety of fishing is available around the area. We are also fortunate to have one of the best salmon rivers in England close by and given notice, we can book rods by the day.
There are a number of excellent estates in the area where sporting Game bird shooting can be obtained. The species available when in season are grouse, pheasant, partridge, woodcock, duck and geese. It is important to save disappointment that we get advance notice to be able to book these activities for guests, the season runs from August 12th through to the end of January depending on species. Prices can be confirmed by request at the time of booking.
As well as the various country sports activities available, we are of course situated in the Northumberland National Park, at the heart of Hadrians Wall country, where the walking, cycling and historical sight seeing is stunning and varied. Horse trekking can also be booked in advance. The Pennine Way is less than a mile away. There are also a number of beautiful National Trust properties to visit nearby.
