With magnificent venues, the ultimate in shooting and outstanding hospitality...why go elsewhere?

Our Estates

Highclere Castle
Home of the Earl and Countess of Canarvon and location for Downton Abbey, Highclere has an international reputation as an outstanding shoot.  “Drives” use the steep wooded valleys and we even show some Hampshire “Grouse”.  Breakfast and lunch are taken at the award winning Jack Russell Inn, an idyllic country pub, located just outside of the estate.

Conholt Park
Nestled on the border of Berkshire, Hampshire and Wiltshire, the Conholt Park shoot is based around the glorious 17th century manor house, which is set in beautiful gardens. The topography of the estate is second to none, with its dramatic banks and chalkland valleys meaning high ‘birds’ are assured. The variety of drives at Conholt means teams of guns will be guaranteed a thrilling variety of shooting, including a unique Grouse Drive set across a line of sunken grouse butts…. what better way to get your eye in for the grouse season ahead! Both breakfast and lunch are taken within the stunning House, a truly grand occasion indeed.

Englefield Estate
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.  There are a variety of drives with a particular favourite being the “Duck drive” over the lake, in front of the House.  After shooting, drinks are taken in the stunning Library overlooking the deer park with lunch served in the majestic Dining Room.

West Woodhay Estate
Set along the ridge of the Berkshire downs with topography that enables a great variety of ‘sport’  including the “Mixed Bag Drive” with Pheasant, Grouse and Partridge all presented together! The Grouse Butts are also a real treat for guests. We are lucky enough to take breakfast and lunch within the breath-taking Orangery which affords views of the stunning formal gardens for which the estate is well known.

Kirby Estate 

Set in 2000 acres, Kirby (our newest estate) boasts the highest point of land in the South East of England and straddles the beautiful Berkshire Downs. The house was built in 1733, is set within eight acres of formal gardens and is a superb example of a Queen Anne property. We enjoy breakfast in the beautiful rooms overlooking the formal gardens and estate beyond and upon conclusion of shooting we enjoy lunch in the brand new (and very impressive) shoot lodge set within the heart of the estate. The topography of the land ensures high ‘birds’ and a real variety of drives. We endeavor to stop at the fascinating Walbury Hill Fort (built circa 750BC) if the weather allows, which gives breathtaking views of the seven surrounding counties.

Well Barn Estate
This Oxfordshire Estate offers some of the best shooting land in Southern England.  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 is the same as a game day on this beautiful estate, with breakfast and a hearty shoot lunch being taken in what is, without doubt, one of the finest shoot lodges in the country.
