Join us at the home of the Earl and Countess of Canarvon for a day at the world renowned film set of Downton Abbey. Its reputation as a game shoot is global, based upon the utilisation of the steep wooded valleys, offering drives of very high pheasant and Hampshire “Grouse”. A day at this iconic estate offers a true day’s game shooting with “everything but the feathers” provided. Breakfast and a traditional shoot lunch are taken just moments from the estate at the award winning Jack Russell Inn, an idyllic country pub.
Faccombe Manor Estate
Recognised by aficionados as the best for shooting in the South East, Faccombe will always be regarded as one of the finest. With topography that boasts some of Hampshire’s highest pheasants and partridges, our Really Wild Clay Days take place over the 4,000 acre Estate around the village of Faccombe. Throughout the summer months, guests can choose to either enjoy lunch themed upon a traditional Spanish partridge shoot in the estate barn or opt for a more traditional shoot lunch at the award winning Jack Russell Inn.
As you enter the Lodge Gates of the Estate and follow the sweeping drive along the avenue of ancient oak trees, you will catch the first glimpse of Englefield House. Extending to over 15,000 acres and set in the heart of Berkshire, this estate combines first class shooting and a magnificent setting, all just 30 miles from Heathrow!
A wide variety of drives are assured with a particular favourite being the duck drive shot over the lake, situated in front of the House. Once shooting has concluded, drinks are enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the 400 acre deer park before a traditional shoot lunch is taken in the opulent Dining Room.
West Woodhay Estate
Enjoy a day at this breath-taking private sporting estate, set along the ridge of the stunning Berkshire downs. The topography of the site enables a great variety of targets to be produced, especially ‘the mixed bag’ where clays simulating high pheasant, grouse and partridge are combined to produce one of The Really Wild Clay Company’s most challenging drives. The newly installed line of grouse butts are also a real treat for guests. Once shooting has concluded, guests can take the opportunity to wander around the simply stunning formal gardens, before enjoying a traditional shoot lunch within the breath-taking Orangery.
Well Barn Estate
Set just ten minutes from the Royal Berkshire, this Oxfordshire Estate offers some of the best shooting land in Southern England, from which a great variety of targets can be produced.
If you like to be challenged with high birds, then this highly renowned game shoot is the day for you! The format of the day exactly replicates that of a game day with breakfast and a hearty shoot lunch being taken within one of the finest purpose built shoot lodges in the UK.
