A working farm in the heart of the Cotswolds
A simulated game day at Hay Lane Farm consists of a thrilling mix of steep banks and wooded hills across its 300 acres. If you look closely, you might be able to spot our infamous Lady’s Wood Extreme Tower! This Cotswold beef farm is also home to a high bird syndicate during the game season. A simulated game day at Hay Lane Farm features a wide variety of drives, using the wide ranging terrain to its full advantage.
Simulated Game Day at Hay Lane Farm
Hay Lane sim days include four exciting drives across the farm, simulating both pheasant and partridge. These days are priced at £175+vat per gun. This price includes up to 3,500 clays, refreshments and a two-course lunch at The Tipputs Inn (guns to provide their own cartridges – FIBRE WAD ONLY. These can be purchased directly from Lady’s Wood if needed). We’re also happy to assist you with the finer details such as gun hire, instruction on the peg and travel/accommodation arrangements as required.
