About Raby Estates
The Raby Estate comprises landholdings and trading operations that are owned by Lord Barnard and his family. Raby Estate business operations include in-house farms, let farms and residential property, visitor attractions and sporting enterprises across 3 estates in Co Durham and Shropshire.
The Raby (Co Durham) estates comprise Upper Teesdale Estate (35,000 acres or thereabouts) and the Raby Estate (20,000 acres or thereabouts) around Raby Castle near Staindrop. The Durham estates hold 136 let farms and 265 residential properties. There is also an extensive area of moorland in Upper Teesdale which is managed for grouse shooting. A driven pheasant shoot around Raby Castle is also managed in hand.
Raby Estates has recently rolled out a comprehensive 5 year business plan which places greater emphasis on property development, leisure and tourism activity and climate change/environmental initiatives. More resources are also to be directed towards safeguarding core estate property, heritage assets and collections.
