Partridge & Pheasant Shooting

Pheasant and Partridge Shoots on the Chillington Estate

Chillington Hall offers some of the very best driven partridge and pheasant shooting in Staffordshire and has a well established and very popular season.

With numerous drives presenting a mix of topography, and a new challenge at each one, they range from rolling arable valleys to narrow woodland rides. 

We can offer smaller days of 40-50 birds as well as bigger 100 or 200 bird days. A filling lunch made with local produce can also be arranged and is hosted at the stunning Grecian Temple which has incredible views looking out over the Lake.

All guns attending our days must hold a current shotgun certificate and carry third party liability up to a level of £5,000,000. Membership of BASC, NGO or Countryside Alliance would cover this.

Please get in touch for prices and further details. Please contact us well in advance as we often have very limited availability.

 


Clay Shooting

A fantastic opportunity to sharpen those shooting skills before the game season starts again, or just a good excuse to get together and enjoy some sporting fun and the fabulous surroundings of the Chillington Estate.

Our experienced team at Chillington are now thrilled to be able to offer this package to ensure you and your team mates have an adrenalin filled day along with the renowned hospitality the Giffard family are known for.

Meet at the Hall for a Breakfast Bap with Hot Drinks and a safety briefing

You will be transported across the estate in our purpose built gun trailer to take in four different drives (Pheasant, Pigeon, Duck and Grouse) presenting a varied set of challenges at each. A Hamper of snacks and beverages (to include Prosecco, damson gin, bottled beer) will be available between drives.

Returning to the Hall for Lunch you will be welcomed with a drinks reception and Chef's selection of canapes in the Grand Saloon (or on the sun terrace if weather permits). Your two course lunch will be served in the stunning family dining room with wine with the meal which will be specially selected from Mr Giffard’s cellar to suit your menu choice.

One final drive after lunch to experience som really high bird clays before returning to the Hall for Tea and Cake.

Dates are available between April and August only and a 10% deposit will be taken to confirm your booking and final balances with menu choices  will be due 10 days prior.

We regrettably cannot take bookings for novices as all participants must be experienced gun owners and hold their own insurance and shotgun licence (proof of these will be required before the day).

Package price is based on 8 people (4 shooting and 4 loading) at each drive, if you are looking for a smaller day please do contact us as we may have another team on our books looking to share with someone.

£230 + VAT per person

Fishing 

Chillington has a stunning sixty acre Pool which was created in the 1760's by the renowned landscaper Lancelot 'Capability' Brown and has an ornate bridge created by James Paine to disguise the dam. James Paine wrote that...

‘In this park is confessedly one of the finest pieces of water, within an inclosure, that this kingdom produces: the verges of which are bounded by fine plantations, intermixed with groves of venerable stately oaks’

The-Pool-Course-Fishing-Chillington-Hall.jpgThe Pool contains various species of fish but mainly Pike, Perch, Roach, Bream, Tench and Carp. Permits to fish at the Pool are occasionally available, but only through the Brewood Angling Club. Please contact them directly via email on  brewoodanglingclub(at)gmail.com. 

 


Woodlands

Chillington Estate has ancient woodlands which have been managed by the Giffard family for generations. In the 1760's Lancelot 'Capability' Brown created much of the Park and the Arboretum to the rear of the Hall, home to many species of tree which creates an abundance of colour during the Autumn months.

We have an active management process in place where harvesting of timber takes place, and new areas are planted to replace these. The woodlands are managed to ensure we maintain the biodiversity of animals, wild flowers and insects that thrive here.

The woodlands provide a spectacular display of English Bluebells during the Spring, a vision of red, green and gold during the Autumn and provide shelter to game birds and wildlife during the Winter.
