We hope you’re enjoying the sunshine and warm weather which has finally hit the UK – about a month late! It’s now the time of year when people are planning their holidays and getting out into the fresh air, and we get a lot of questions about the best places to go shooting in the UK. We have some of the finest landscapes and scenery right on our doorstep, as well as world class shooting schools and companies for beginners and seasoned veterans. We’re based in the lovely South West of England, in Devon, and this is the area we know best. So below is our selection of the best places to go shooting.
These guys have the incredible landscape of Dartmoor to play with, and with its rocky tors and rolling moorland, there is no better place to get out into the fresh air. Their shoots take place in the valley of the River Bovey, in south Dartmoor, where you can choose clay pigeon, pheasant shooting, and even hunting pheasants with hawks. Enjoy a hearty home cooked meal when you return, and relax in their cosy accommodation, ready for the next day!

The landscape undulates through hidden valleys, wild forests and rocky outcrops. It’s a truly magnificent landscape to explore, and will easily go down as one of the best days out in the British countryside you’re likely to have.
