A Typical Day

Typically the day starts at 9.15am, with tea and coffee before shooting two drives, then breaking for elevenses in the field. We shoot a further drive before lunch.

We can now offer, by special arrangement, a Breakfast bacon bap, lunch, and tea/coffee and cake at end of day at Powis Castle.

Depending on the progress of the bag and the time of year we will then shoot a up to a further two drives before ending the day back at the family home for a cup of tea, where head shot during the day will be announced and also welcome you to take a fully prepared, oven ready brace of birds home with you. We welcome well behaved dogs and can provide 4x4’s, though bringing your own is appreciated.
