This is a fantastic place to visit . We stayed in the pod cabins and had a barbecue cabin which was amazing you will love it ! . Everyone sits around the edge of the cabin so you can see and talk to everyone, and there is a massive barbecue in the middle. It has a large chimney over the top so it never gets too smokey inside. The kitchen and dining area was really spacious with a large table and chairs , 2 fridges and a dishwasher , all really nice . The toilets and showers were really pleasant . All in all the accommodation was outstanding. Had a full on full English breakfast in the morning at the lodge which is only 3 mins walk from our cabins . We had an activity pack which included archery, crossbows, axe throwing, .22 shooting and some pump action shotgun Wow !! . Everyone had a fantastic time . The instructor was really friendly and made it a really fun day . The organisers fixed us up with a mini bus on the Saturday night and we toured around on a big pub crawl. We started at the “ Yeaveley Arms “ which is a great little pub right next to the estate . All the lads agreed this was a fantastic weekend away . The staff were really friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time . I want to go back soon !!

We had a very last minute Hen party at Yeaveley Estate and I honestly could not fault them!

From start to finish Guy and Les bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable and ensure our original arrangements could go ahead without a hitch. They were professional, kind and run a very slick service.

10/10 would recommend

The shooting mixed bag was the ideal stag activity that everyone loved, and the team at Yeaveley were well oiled in making it enjoyable. Thankfully we caught a nice day for our activities. We started with archery and crossbows, moved onto axe throwing, and then split into rifle shooting and pump action clay pigeon shooting. The axe throwing is still just as hard as I remember from doing it elsewhere. The crossbows were surprisingly fun, and the clay pigeon was definitely my favourite, though I was a little underwhelmed by the rifles. The complete lack of recoil made it feel more like a light gun arcade shooting compared to the rest of the stations. Overall though would definitely recommend, both as a stag do event and generally as a place to go shooting.

We had a brilliant time at Yeaveley.....Guy and Les were fantastic hosts and have really got a great set-up. They have thought of everything which meant we were free to enjoy ourselves! The cabins (2 sleepers and 1 BBQ) were absolutely spot-on and accompanied by a separate kitchen and shower block. The clay-pigeon shooting and rifle range were great fun too.

All-in-all an excellent weekend, enjoyed by everyone including the Stag!

We hope to come back at some stage.

Thanks again Guy and Les.

Guy and Les were fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

The army tents were superb, ample wood was supplied for camp fires. Overall they were brilliant.

The bushcraft and survival activity was brilliant.

Would definitely recommend groups stay here.

We went clay pigeon shooting as part of a hen party. The estate is beautiful and we were warmly welcomed despite being very early. I was scared I would be so rubbish and miss every shot but Stephan was a great teacher and it was easier than I feared! We loved how there were a variety of clays to shoot and really enjoyed it. Highly recommended.

Just back from a fantastic Stag Do weekend at Yeaveley Estate. Les & Guy sorted everything out - really friendly and approachable - nothing was too much trouble. I'd recommend staying in the cabins. There's even one you can cook in! The shooting syndicate activity was spot on, as were the instructors - really knowledgeable and a good laugh. I reckon it'd be a great place to do a days shooting even if you weren't staying on the estate.

Perfect weekend for anyone who enjoys the countryside, in a peaceful setting west of Derby. Guy and Les (owners) where so accommodating and made it their priority to ensure we had a great time. The food was marvellous down at the lodge and was well needed after the clay pigeon and rifle shooting we done. All estate staff where very helpful and happy to help ensuring safety measures where followed at all times. Would definitely revisit.

We had a 2 night stay in the Army tents and an activity booked off site...Les was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. Very relaxed on site as site rules suggest it could be strict. Honestly if the lads on our stag had a a trouble free stay I'm sure anyone can. Facilities were brilliant and site has everything you need to have a great time. Access on and off site was decent as we had an off site quad biking event also went into Derby for an evening which was no problem, even coming back at silly o'clock. Would highly recommend Yeaveley Estate to anyone, they also have great plans for the future...

Where to start lol. Booked our stay for five of us in one of the army tents on this estate. From the moment we got there we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts Guy and Les, nothing was to much trouble for them. Sounds to good to be true but our stay there was perfect. We had such a laugh and none of us wanted to come home as it was one laugh after another. You even get to have a Camp fire in the ready made fire pit supplied with logs. A BBQ is supplied to, which is a bonus (you don't even have to clean it after use hehe). The grounds were stunning, the facilities were clean and well maintained. We did one of the many activities available there which was Archery/Air Rifle Shooting and had a great time. Chris the instructor was top notch to and him and Guy kept us laughing with their stories of their youth (not that they are old) HAHA.

Thank you for an amazing weekend and if any one is thinking of staying there and reads this, believe me you will have an amazing time.

Also take earplugs if any of your party snores. I didn't :( lol.

PS Make sure you take the time to get to know Guy and Les, you will not be disappointed.
