Providing clay pigeon shooting for beginners, intermediate and more experienced shooters all over the lake district, with our main site between Windermere and Kendal. Fantastic scenic setting with a log burner if its cold and cover if its raining. With locally sourced food that is smoked on site it completes the perfect shooting site.

Had a fantastic time learning how to shoot! We were on a stag do, so there was lots of banter and Michael joined in. The teaching and learning about clay pigeon shooting was fantastic! I couldn't recommend him more highly.....fabulous!
