A very pleasant morning

This is a pleasant clay ground set up with some quite testing stands. Unfortunately quite a few of the stands are not open at the moment. Very nice welcoming staff.

Went with my husband for an introductory lesson. I had been target shooting many years before but never at moving targets and my husband had never held a gun at all. Emily took us for our lesson and was so patient and explained everything to us we were surprised when we actually hit the clays. We had a fabulous time... More

Thank you to our instructors who made our visit informative and enjoyable. A great place for a Stag Party or a corporate event.

Treated to a tuition session here as a birthday present with friends. Professional very friendly instructors who really know the sport inside out. Great woodland venue with many different shoots and challenges. Well worth the money. Shop and cafe onsite. Loads of parking. Will be going again very soon. I think you need to book well in advance as it... More

Visited our beck shooting school to give clay shooting a try. As total beginner see were slightly nervous, luckily we had a great instructor (Trevor lake), Trevor talked and demonstrated us though everything at a great pace and gave us lots of good tips. Unfortunately he made it so enjoyable 2 hours flew by and we were eager for more.... More

I have been using this place for years and discovered flaws in my clay shooting skills which I never knew existed. This is an enjoyable place to patronise with helpful and polite staff, challenging stands and a reasonable catering facility.
