Lady’s Wood are thrilled to provide simulated game shooting at the magnificent Chavenage Estate, in the heart of the Gloucestershire countryside. These sim days are the perfect opportunity to experience the exhilaration of driven game shooting in a simulated manner and for a fraction of the cost.
A beautiful Gloucestershire estate steeped in history
Set in 1,700 acres of rolling Gloucestershire countryside, Chavenage Estate is steeped in history. Built in the Elizabethan style, the house dates back to the 16th century and is now a popular filming location for a variety of films and television programmes – you may recognise it as Trenwith House, from the popular BBC series Poldark. Furthermore, the estate is currently home to a game shooting syndicate who enjoy a number of high bird days throughout the shooting season.
Sim days at Chavenage
A Lady’s Wood sim day at Chavenage includes four drives spread throughout the estate, simulating both pheasant and partridge. These days are priced at £220+vat per gun and include up to 5,000 clays, refreshments and a two-course lunch at The Royal Oak, Leighterton (guns to provide their own cartridges – FIBRE WAD ONLY. Conversely, you can purchase these directly from Lady’s Wood if needed). We also assist with extras such as gun hire, loaders and instruction on the peg and travel/accommodation arrangements if required.
