Arley Estate Shoot

Arley Shoots

Under the leadership of experienced game keeper Oliver Davies and his team, the Arley Shoot based at Arley Estate on the banks of the Rivern Severn, Upper Arley in Worcestershire, offers a unique experience.

Set in 1,600 acres of picturesque woodlands, banks and valleys, the terrain is perfect for top quality pheasant, partridge and duck shooting.

At the Arley Estate we are able to provide 100 to 400 bird days, over both week day shooting and Saturday’s. Accommodating 7 to 10 gun teams, single guns, small groups and full teams are all welcome.

With emphasise on quality our ducks have been fantastic in the early season this year, as well as our pheasants and Partridge from October onwards.

What our guns have to say about Arley Estate Shoot

Mr. James Cartwright, October 2018

I’ve known Oliver the game keeper here for about 6 years now. We shoot regularly at other estates he manages. Arley is new under his management and Knowing his hospitality from other venues we felt confident to try a day at Arley. We’ve typically shot ducks here but the game can be varied. We’ve now had 2 fantastic days at Arley. Oliver never lets us go short of the bag even when our shooting fails to do justice with the fabulous birds he puts up. I can’t recommend a day here enough. Highly recommended. Oliver and his team deliver a very special day.

Mr. Rupert Thurgood, November 2018

I have had a few days at Arley this season and as with all the shoots Oliver Davies and his team run this is first class. Given it is a fairly new acquisition for them the turnaround in the shoot since their leadership began is nothing short of remarkable. High flying fast and plentiful, the birds are presented to all abilities and the whole day is run professionally, smoothly and with excellent refreshments throughout the day… highly recommended.
