A quick search on the internet will meet with a distinct lack of facilities for people wanting to experience rifle shooting, have a safe place to set up a rifle and zero, or to get some invaluable practice. That’s where we can help!
We can take an individual all the way from never having fired a rifle, through to DSC Level 2, and everything in between, and beyond… This doesn’t just apply to novices. We have many clients who want to improve on a specific skill set, such as shooting off sticks, shot placement, getting the shot off quicker and rapid reloading for a follow up shot, as well as post-shot preparation like carcass extraction and handling. There is simply nowhere else that offers this thorough and flexible approach in a safe and controlled environment, with one-to-one tuition and guidance.
When we designed and built the range in 2008, our aim was not only to provide a safe facility for sporting rifle enthusiasts to set up and zero their firearms, but also provide the flexibility for every level of stalker to practice and hone their skills for 99% of the situations they were likely to encounter in the field. This could be a simple prone shot, a standing or sitting shot or even an off the shoulder shot for dispatching a wounded animal.
The addition of our new, longer range targets now provides us with the facility to take on extended range shots to give stalkers the confidence in not only their own abilities, but their chosen set-ups and equipment. Lifesize Fox, Muntjac, CWD, Roe, Fallow and Red Deer targets provide realistic simulated shot placement scenarios, at 150m, 200 and 250m, all from the same firing point. We can also provide target boards at those ranged for balistic calculations.
And the training doesn’t just stop with the hands on guidance. We can help on kit selection and usage, including rifles, calibers’ and ammunition, as well as preparation for trips abroad and guided stalking in the UK. Although we have our own preferences, we realise that everyone’s taste and budget differs, and with over 30 years of stalking experience we consider ourselves well versed in getting the preparation right, first time.
All range sessions must be booked in advance of your visit, and you can do this via text, email or phone. If you are booking for the first time we ask for your full session payment at the time of booking. Any subsequent visits may be paid for on leaving. Please do not pay a visit to the Range on-spec, without making a call to us first.

With the introduction of a compulsory shooting certificate in certain German federal states, the SNW provides the proof of competency required for participation in driven hunts on hoofed game. If you have a driven hunt booked in Germany please check whether you need the SNW a few months before you travel. Completing it with us allows you to have some training first, then be tested using the recognised target and scoring systems, in a relaxed environment, assuring you of the permission to hunt. An SNW certificate is valid for 1 year.
