Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really good fun, took a group of beginners and had us all shooting well. A group of 10 and he made sure all of us improved, excellent coaching, and a brilliant guy. Awesome fun and immensely satisfying when you hit it 😂. Would recommend to anyone and everyone

Fantastic afternoon shooting with Shaun. Great sense of humour. Leisurely pace. We and our teenage sons loved it. Delightful woodland location. Undercover so rain didn't spoil it.

Great afternoon on the clays and rifles with Sean, a funny, patient and great teacher.
Would thoroughly recommend him to anyone.

Sharon and Sean were brilliant hosts from the get go, they both gave really clear and helpful instruction during the shoot and created a really calm and freindly atmosphere.

It was easy to find and Sharon was there to greet us at the gate, the location where the shooting took place was out the way in a small clear wooded area with views of the surrounding countryside, this added to the experience.

A few of our group hadn't used shotguns before, this wasn't an issue, they recieved calm and clear instruction and were successfully hitting clays in no time!

Overall, I would highly recommend giving Old Down Pursuits a go, we were a large group and it didn't take away from the quality of instruction or time shooting, 10/10.

I booked with Sean for a group of 8 with ages ranging from 17 to 73 and we did clay pigeon shooting and archery. Sean was patient and knowledgable and everyone had a great time achieving the best they could with some competitive fun at the end. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed! Perfect fun afternoon for everyone.

We were looking for an activity to do around Cirencester and after a bit of research I found this place. They offer a variety of activities such as clay shooting, air rifle and archery. We went for the air rifle and had a blast! It’s our first time doing something like this and the teacher was great. Only thing I’d say is that it’s not the easiest place to get to and not clearly labelled. Luckily we’d set off earlier and were able to get there on time.

We spent a good couple of hours learning Archery and Air rifles. Sean was knowledgable and his expert advice was just what we needed. Safety was paramount. It was a highlight of our holiday. (Was able to pay on card on the day; deposit over the phone)

We’ve just had a great clay pigeon shooting experience with Sean. Good set-up and great coaching led to a very enjoyable afternoon. Catered for young, old (ish) and a cocker spaniel who needed ear defenders! Well worth a visit.

We booked last minute with Sean after looking through the Cotswold Water Park leaflet and it was fantastic. Our first time clay shooting on most definitely won’t be our last. We had one on one support with Sean and it was a brilliant few hours. Thank you for making our last day of our Mini Moon a good one :)
