We visited Ian Coleys for the first time today. We live about an hour away but had never ventured this far before. Obviously didn't know what to expect but we're wowed and looked after so well from start to finish. Welcomed and checked in and immediately made to feel comfortable. The catering was good staple shooting ground fair. Nice ingredients... More

Our 2 boys aged 14 & 15 had the Bronze Clay Pigeon package with 50 cartridges each. This was their first time shooting and we couldn't have asked for more. Shaun Porter, Senior Instructor was an absolute gentleman and made the boys experience overwhelming. The grin didn't leave their faces for the whole experience and we will definitely be returning...

Excellent clay lay-out - they also have an air rifle range but that's not my sport. Top class instruction and very friendly, They have a shop and gun room to keep you fully occupied. Easy to find location which I can't say the same for many shooting schools !

Me and my husband went for a taster session. Neither of us have really fired a gun before. It was just the two of us with our instructor and we tried a few different stations. They weren't stuffy at all, just really helpful and we were impressed that we actually hit quite a few of the targets! We really enjoyed... More

We are experienced shooters and were visiting Cheltenham so took the opportunity to try out the shooting ground. It was absolutely brilliant..... the targets were testing but hittable, you had to really think about them so once we been around all the stands we had worked up an appetite. This is where they lost points :-( it was around 1... More

Dear Gaynor C - Very pleased to hear that as experienced shooters you found our Ground 'absolutely brilliant' and the targets challenging but manageable - thank you. We apologise about the catering (or lack thereof) on that particular Saturday - we were a lot busier than expected, and so the external caterer did indeed run out of food. The caterer... More

We had a fabulous time at Ian Coley school with a fabulous (and very patient!) instructor. As gun novices he was very patient in explaining everything to us and we had lots of fun. Would highly recommend.

Despite the weather an excellent time was had by all, at the 'have a go' session last Friday, with my dad and two sisters. Tuition was great and very responsive to everyone's different styles of shooting. Would recommend for friends and family (older children). Will defiantly be back in the summer for a family competition. Such good fun!

I was helped emensley from my gun fit to my purchase and finally a group of lessons. I was made to feel welcome with extremely professional, friendly staff. I would advise anyone from beginner to expert to visit with such an array of stands available.
