We take great pride in the quality of our facilities both in and out of the clubhouse. Our grounds are kept in immaculate condition by our permanent ground staff and are always ready to provide a high level of targets for shooters. All of the clay pigeon traps here are automatic with push button release, undergo regular maintenance and are constantly reloaded to provide maximum convenience for the shooter.

        James Backham, RATED 4 out of 5

      • "I bought the 25 clay option inclu. breakfast as a surprise gift for my partners birthday.
        Although we were a little lost on the location due to the satnav, we arrived with a big welcome and complimentary coffee and our breakfasts of a sausage bap each, which were lovely. The weather was perfect for the activity luckily and we felt extremely looked after.
        The instructor was lovely and happy to have a laugh with us all the way, he made us feel like we were in safe hands. The activity was soo much fun, did not realise how much of a crack shot we were, considering we'd never shot a gun before!
        Afterwards we treated ourselves to a beer and sat outside with the gorgeous views and planned our many more trips there, absolutely loved it, thank you!"
