Hunting

The hounds have been kennelled at Belvoir Castle since 1809. They are one of very few remaining packs of purebred Old English Foxhounds in the United Kingdom; and this type of Foxhound is distinctive for its black and tan colour. The pack currently consists of 48 Couples.


If you would like to book a days hunting on the famous grass and hedges in Leicestershire, the home of English Foxhunting, we can organise experienced horses to enjoy a once in a life time experience. Despite the Hunting Act the Belvoir Hunt continues to thrive; enjoying tremendous support at every level. On hunting days the Hounds follow trails or the Hunt conducts those forms of hunting that are exempt under the Act.

Parties of 8 of more can enjoy the ultimate experience by staying at Belvoir Castle. After an exhilarating days hunting enjoy a delightful dinner served in the majestic State Dining Room before retiring to one of the 13 exquisite bedrooms.
