A fine lesson in a fantastic location!
Oct 2020 • Friends
We took a two person shotgun lesson with Ernie. Ernie made us both very relaxed with plenty of joviality but also a lot sincerity around the shotgun and instilling the gravity of misuse without taking the enjoyment from the session. We both came away feeling more confident than when we entered and will definitely be returning. Even with the Covid restrictions in place the session was well run and felt Covid safe.

Outstanding Instruction!
Feb 2020
We are ranchers from Colorado and ended up booking a trip to Argentina which included two days of Dove hunting. The flaw in our plan was that my wife although an accomplished rifle shot had never handled a shotgun before and neither had I for about 35 years! While in the UK we spent 2 1/2 days at Lady's Wood with instructor Ernie who very, very patiently gave us a crash course in basic shotgun Dove oriented shooting. Everyone there was very professional and kind and set us up with enough skills to hopefully not completely embarrass ourselves in Argentina!
We travel to the UK several times per year and fully intend to return to Lady's Wood for more. Thanks you Ernie and all. We will let you know how we do.

Excellent day
Aug 2019 • Family
Just to say a big thank you to the team at Lady’s Wood Shooting School. We visited last Wednesday with my granddaughter and really enjoyed the whole experience.
The layouts are very good and the high tower has got to be the best.
Great tuition from Ernie and he took the time to help my 15 year old granddaughter get to grips with shooting.

I would recommend Lady’s Wood to all levels.

Thank you.

Stepping back in time?

Hopefully my comments aren’t coloured by the fact I didn’t seem to be able to hit the proverbial barn-door on the day I visited. I’d agree with the comments about a friendly welcome and the cosy little clubhouse - nice cake too.
The regulation that irritated the serious competitors in the group was the restriction on which cartridges were permitted. I don’t shoot well enough for it to be any personal issue, but for the serious competition boys looking for 80s and above it so does. There’s no Promatic system, you go round with a scorer, but amazingly a couple of the traps are operated manually by a guy in a tiny hut, listening for his whistle. Very quaint. One rabbit came out so slowly we were all in stitches - so I did hit that. I imagine it’ll be speeded up before I get another go though. Nevertheless, our competition top score was 90, plenty of high 80s and I’m sure there was plenty to test even their game.

Hen Do Experience
Mar 2019 • Friends
A group of four total novices out for a hen do activity and two spectators.
For starters, the place is stunning. Peacocks, guinea fowl and ducks roaming free along with (some very brave) wild pheasants wandering around in beautiful surroundings.
We were greeted with hot coffee and tea and home made cake and then introduced to our instructor, James. The fact he was fit didn’t hurt! but he also clearly knew what he was talking about and was able to talk us all through what we were doing wrong and right.
Our walk through the woods was lovely and the stop at each of the traps gave a different perspective and feeling to the shots.
Once we had finished there was more cake! (and drinks).
We all had a really nice afternoon and the venue, staff and experience was well worth the money.

I wish I could give 10 stars!

I can not recommend Lady's Wood highly enough! In an effort to break-up several days of walking around looking at charming old things, I thought an afternoon of shooting would be a fun activity for my (friendly) competition-loving family. And on our flight back to the States, we all agreed that Lady's Wood was one of our favorite highlights of the whole trip!

Like so many have said in other reviews, Duncan was wonderful! He's a natural teacher - patient and clear in helping you make corrections to improve your shot. He was funny and had us all cracking up as he found just the right motivation to help each of us improve! None of us had shot before, but we all picked it up really quickly which is a testament to Duncan's instruction! We all successfully made many of the shots at each stand (except for that 120ft tower! That was brutal and only 2 of us connected at all! But it was still fun to try!)

The property is also so beautiful and sitting outside with cake and tea reliving each trap and comparing bests and worsts was just a super fun way to spend an afternoon. I would recommend this activity to anyone wanting a fun activity that embraces English tradition!

Fantastic!

A group of us came here as part of a wedding weekend celebration and I can honestly say it was brilliant!! The place itself is immaculate and the staff were so friendly and fun. Most of us had never done any shooting before but by the end of the session we were hooked! The buffet lunch was excellent and the sloegasms enjoyed by all!!
