Simulated Game Shooting

Led by Declan Morrison and Head Keeper, Mick Lewis, simulated clay days on the Fonthill Estate will now be available from mid-April to mid-June mostly using land previously unused for clay shooting, to create exciting and varied new drives within wonderful scenery.


A wildflower meadow in a remote part of Great Ridge wood, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will be used as the meeting venue, with a stretch tent for shelter allowing sweeping views of Great Ridge and the surrounding West Wiltshire countryside.


The day will consist of five varied drives for 12 guns and will include an amazing gastronomic experience throughout the day.  It will be a day for private parties or for corporate and will be challenging, social and fulfilling.  The mixed topography will allow us to replicate pheasants, partridges, pigeon, grouse and woodcock.


Our talented chef, Caroline Wilson, will prepare lunch in front of everyone on BBQ’s using ingredients produced on the Estate or from local producers, and Declan’s Argentinian wife will make her delicious empanadas for elevenses.


We aim to deliver a truly memorable day for those who shoot regularly as well as those who wish to try the sport for the first time.
