Typical day

Our packages are bespoke, so we always fit around the needs of you and your team. But this is what you might expect from a typical day with us: 


Arrive at the Shoot Lodge between 8:30am and 9:00am. Your host will meet you and your party at The Shoot Lodge for your full English breakfast, including coffee or tea. We’ll give you a detailed safety briefing and introduce to your loaders for the day (if required), before you board the Gun Bus to travel to your first drive. 

First drive 

Enjoy your first drive, followed by Champagne, sloe gin and soft drinks.

Second drive 

After the second drive we’ll provide elevenses on the field. Typically, this will consist of hot soup and sausages, game pie, soft drinks and home-made biscuits, before you move on to the next drive.

Third drive 

Your team may choose to “shoot through” and take lunch at the end of the day. After the third drive, there will be more Champagne, sloe gin, and soft drinks available.Shoot lunch

Shoot lunch

Travel to our Bullpen venue for a superb lunch, prepared by our Chef with a twist. A full bar is available for lunch.

Fourth & Fifth drive


The Gun Bus will bring you back to The Shoot Lodge for alfresco drinks in our beautiful Oak Pavilion, before you and your guests enjoy a delicious dinner and retire to your overnight accommodation if you’re staying with us. 

Please note, this is a sample day and structure and timings may change. If you do want to shoot through, please let us know beforehand.
