Whitbourne Estate is a privately owned family estate located on the Herefordshire and Worcestershire border. It has been owned and run by the Evans family since 1860.
Welcome to Whitbourne, where sporting enthusiasts have enjoyed driven pheasant and partridge shooting for nearly two centuries. The topography of the Estate lends itself to presenting high quality birds. Shooting over 2000 acres, we have drives to cater for the most discerning shots.Stands vary from plentiful and stunning parkland shooting to challenging 'snap' pegs in the woods and as far as possible, individual team preference will be accommodated on the day.
We pride ourselves in doing it properly, Whitbourne is a relaxed and friendly shoot where the team is focussed on delivering a memorable “whole day” experience from the welcome to the shooting, the scenery and the hospitality.
The Estate is ownedby the Evans family. The forestry is carefully managed by head forestry Oliver Evanswith the aim of producing quality timber. Whitbourne oak has a national reputation and the estate won First Prize in the Royal Forestry Society Excellence in Forestry Award 2013 for Silviculture. Whilst most of the farmland is let to tenants, the family runs a home farm under contract producing Organic Beef Shorthorn, Lleyn Sheep and traditional breed pigs. In 2013 the estate diversified, opening a fine dining restaurant in a former pigsty. Green Cow Kitchens is now regarded as one of the top restaurants in Herefordshire and attracts a loyal following of diners.
