Facilities/equipment

Yes we do.  Some things can be fixed here on site, for anything else, we use a local reliable gunsmith.

Yes we do, we have approximately 5 covered sporting layouts.

Either is fine on the clay ground. If you are using the PRACTICAL SHOTGUN range, this is a fibre wad only area.

No we don’t allow steel shot cartridges at the ground.

Maximum shot weight is 28 gram and size 6.5.

Only 2 cartridges to be loaded in a semi-auto please – we do not allow 3 shots

Our shooting stands are accessible, and shooting cages are suitable for wheelchairs.  The clubhouse can be accessed by use of a moveable ramp.

Yes, although dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.  Dogs are not allowed in the clubhouse.

Yes.  Please ensure you have ear defenders and safety glasses for your children if they are going out on the ground with you.  (If you forget, please ask at reception for some loan equipment).  Children are also welcome in the clubhouse.

We have a small facility for air rifle shooting.  The air rifle range is outdoor, but the firing point is under cover.  The range is up to 20m long and has a few knock down targets. The cost to use the air rifle range is £10 per person, for up to 2 hours.

Legal

Yes you can.  However you must be accompanied by either a member of our staff (instructor) or someone who holds a valid shotgun certificate.  If you would like to have a go at clay target shooting, you can book in with us for a “taster” session or “lesson”.  Please contact us for further details. (You will also need to sign a section 21 disclaimer prior to commencing your session).

There is no minimum age for clay shooting as such.  The main consideration is safety.  The child must have suitable upper body strength to hold a gun safely.  As a guide we would recommend 10 years and over for clay target shooting using a shotgun.  Air rifle shooting may be an option for younger children.

If you have a valid shotgun certificate you can hire a gun from us.  If you do not hold a certificate you are unable to hire guns from us.

Please visit our terms and conditions page for full details.

Each clay card has a maximum quantity which can be adjusted by Reception staff. When booking in, you can request that your card be set to a “x” maximum.

Any lost clay cards must be paid in full. E.g. A clay card with a 200 maximum on, if lost, you would be charged for 200 clays. This is because if a card is picked up by another person, they may then go and shoot all of the clays on this card FOC.

Although this is an extremely rare occurrence and generally, lost cards are returned by another customer if found. In the meantime, yourself and our staff will be asked to go around the clay stands to see if the card can be located but unfortunately if not, you will be required to pay the full clay card fee.
