We have recently featured in the Shooting Gazette and Sporting Shooter (read the articles on our media page).
Centred around the ancient village of Kingweston near Somerton and with views across the moors to ancient Glastonbury Tor, shooting takes place on the surrounding Kingweston and Hurcot estates with a shoot acreage of approaching 3000 acres.
Our shooting is easily accessible from the M4/M5/A303 and by rail in less than 1hr 30minutes from London Paddington (and we have checked it’s okay to take the train with your gun!)
The Kingweston Shoot
This shoot, with game books dating back to 1887, lies to the west of the village and consists of steep valleys and escarpments overlooked by high ground covered with deciduous open-canopied woodlands.
Challenging pheasants ensue and leave the tops of the trees at real height and speed before flying across the valleys with eager Guns in open ground in the valley bottoms. Highlights include high birds streaming over the quarry top on the Palmers Drive (an old alabaster quarry) and the twisting swooping high birds of Blue Hills Drive. This makes for drives where experienced Guns will feel truly challenged. The occasional partridge and woodcock add to the spice of it all.
The Charltons Shoot
After listening to the needs of our valued clients it was clear that discerning Guns want shooting to suit all budgets so, for 2013 Kingweston Sporting Estates established The Charltons Shoot.
The Charltons Shoot is being tailored to provide high-quality shooting from established woodlands and orchards that will challenge experienced Guns, but also nurture those new to the sport. By concentrating on the shooting – and by removing the frills surrounding some shooting days – prices will be extremely competitive.
