We’re delighted to unveil Symonds Hall as the latest addition to our sim day line-up, new for spring/summer 2021.
A beautiful, secluded valley surrounded by picturesque Cotswold countryside
Symonds Hall is a beautiful, secluded valley near to the Cotswold town of Wotton-under-edge, home to a hidden gem of a high bird shoot, that has recently seen investment in its infrastructure. Set in a horseshoe-shaped valley, Symonds Hall presents a variety of drive options from open banks, wooded clearings and a commanding bracken clad hill.
Simulated Game Days at Symonds Hall
Sim days at Symonds Hall include four exhilarating drives against a breath-taking backdrop. Each day is priced at £200+vat per gun. This includes up to 5,000 clays, breakfast, refreshments and a two-course lunch at The Royal Oak, Leighterton.
Guns should provide their own cartridges (fibre wad only). These can be purchased directly from Lady’s Wood if needed. We are also happy to assist you with things such as gun hire, instruction on the peg and travel/accommodation arrangements as required.
