Many people think taking a walk around the country will be the ultimate stress relief- we think they haven't looked hard enough, as we have a fantastic clay shooting range hidden away in Thornicombe. You don't have to be a James Bond style gun slinger to be able to take on this challenge. We offer fantastic one on one tuition which is perfectly designed to bring you up to speed with a variety of shooting disciplines- so all those clay targets will be putty in your hands.

With Quad Biking, Archery, and so much more to choose from, you're guaranteed an action packed day out when you pay us a visit. We also have an on site cafe which provides hot and cold meals and refreshments. Not only that, we've also got a function room available for hire, car parking, and toilets too.

The Shoot

It is undeniable that we have some of the finest facilities that you'll find at any shooting range in the region. Our entire site is overlooking some picture perfect views of the Dorset countryside- but trust us, you'll only want to focus on the action that you'll be taking part in. If you're a novice who has never even picked up a gun before, we assure you that our training will help you get to grips with a variety of shooting disciplines and that it will be no time at all before you're ready to take on our automated traps. With plenty of shooting layouts to explore, it is time to let battle against the clays commence!
