    So much fun!
    We visited for a hen do. Ten very lively ladies most of which had never picked up a gun in their lives. Clive took my group, he was extremely patient and expertly advised us how to shoot accurately. All of us had multiple hits! A really great afternoons activity. Highly recommend. Thank you for looking after us all so well! Also the resident dogs were beautiful!

    Great business with excellent personal care
    Visited twice in recent months. First time with our son for his 20th Birthday in October 2022 and again in February 2023 as a day out for both our sons. On both occasions, we selected the 50-shot package which included 1-1 and 1-2 coaching from the owner Clive who was brilliant. Gun, cartridges and jacket provided as well as guidance on the 5 different clay pigeon shooting ranges you get to use for 10 shots a range. Highly recommend it and will be back.

    Best shooting ground I've been to
    Massive thanks to Clive and Jackie. Devon shooting ground was a great shoot ground with good stands and easy to get to from most places on the north coast of Devon. We've been on a few shoots before but this was by far the best place we've been to. Clive accommodated for all the abilities and ages in our group.. 10 year old through to mid 60's. Great tuition, Clive was great making sure everyone got on the birds, making those who have never shot have a great time and helping massively with those who had shot before get better. Will definitely be coming back every time we're down here. Thanks for a great day guys!

    Clay shooting.
    Today my son and I tried clay shooting. I am 62 with rubbish eyesight, so I didn't think I'd actually manage to hit anything, but with the expert tuition from Clive, I surprised myself and actually hit 11 clays. He started us off with the safety aspect,and how to hold the shotgun,aim and follow the clays. Ear defenders are supplied, protective glasses and a gillet to wear, as you have your cartridges in the pocket. We really enjoyed it and will definitely be going again. .

There were eight of us mixed group ages /genders and we were all looked after by Gavin (great chap) gave us expert advice and guidance throughout. Clive kindly put the dogs away as one of our party has a phobia i should of told them before but Clive was great about it. Brilliant day honestly the most enjoyable ,safe and exciting experience nothing could improve it. i'm pricing up shotguns on the back of it Excellent utterly recommend

    50 sporting clay round
    my family and I are away at the moment so away from our normal shooting ground so we set out to find a shooting ground near where we are staying. The ground is in beautiful valley and the stands are surrounded by woodland. The stands have lots of variety including teals, crossers, loopers, incomers and going away birds. Clive (the owner) is very welcoming and great company whilst going around the clay round (often giving me helpful tips) everyone is very friendly including ted the spaniel. We didn’t bring our own guns on holiday but the gun renting system here is great managed to get to use a good example of a miroku MK70 which performed well. my dad and I both shot well (for us anyway!) my dad hitting 31/50 and myself hitting 42/50. will definitely be returning this week to try and improve our scores!

Clive was great, very friendly and clearly enjoys what he does. It was great seeing his dogs running around too. Really took the time to teach us and it payed off as we were complete beginners.

Would highly recommend!

Fantastic value for money.

He also recommended a few good places to eat in north Devon, we visited the black Venus on his recommendation and it was great.
