Conholt Lane, United Kingdom
Partridge, Red-legged partridge, Pheasant

Situated in East Wiltshire, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Conholt offers challenging combinations of driven pheasant and partridge, in the wooded hills and grassy valleys. Thoughtfully renovated over the last 22 years, the shoot was the vision and passion of the late Paul van Vlissingen, a true countryman who so strongly believed that shooting and conservation go hand in hand.
The van Vlissingen Family continue to improve the 2500 acre estate and are committed to the conservation of this unique chalk down-land habitat. The central shooting valley consists of 1500 acres of grassland with strategic hanging woods from which exceptionally high pheasant can be shown. The layout of the woodland and continuing management of the grassland is all done in the best interests of the shoot, the game birds and other naturally occurring wildlife.
The variety of drives offered at Conholt ensure a good combination of high birds and low fast and weaving birds, thus challenging the guns at every stand. The morning drives are traditionally divided by “elevenses” providing an opportunity for the guns and guests to sample some hot soup, delicious snacks and a sloe gin for the more adventurous. Transport is provided between stands and guests may also choose to enjoy a brisk walk through the countryside. The days consist ideally of three or four drives with the focus on long good drives with challenging birds rather than shorter but more numerous drives. The optimal shoot number is seven single guns but eight would be considered upon request.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are taken in the main house, which has a wonderful garden and offers a beautiful vista of the landscaped parklands. The guns and their partners are accommodated in tastefully appointed double rooms with private bathrooms, and catered to by the full time chef, housekeepers and butler.

    An excellent shoot and great destination. High birds and lots of them. Justin, the gamekeeper, and his team ensure a steady offering of fast partridge and super high pheasants. Challenging but a wonderful shoot combined with the comfortable house, delicious meals and wonderful hospitality. It doesn't get much better then Conholt....

    Conholt is one of the top shoots in the UK. Plenty of (high) pheasants, excellent food, great hospitality and luxury accommodation. It is rare to find a Great house and Shoot in the same location. I can recommend Conholt to everyone!

    Conholt is one of the great Shoots in the UK. Shot there last week after 5 years of absence and I'm impressed by what has happened since. The new game keeper has fully restored Conholt to its previous glory days. High birds, long flushed well spread over the guns and a wonderful shooting ground. Everything well organised. Experienced guns will eat their hart out, I did and not just in the dinning room. Not an easy shoot but a treat for the real sportsman. Keep it up.

    Conholt was my initiation the the shoot, now 8 years ago. It is a great place; the estate is beautiful and the drives very challenging. Plenty of birds in the drives even in January. It is meanly high to very high birds. You can only shoot there with a loader; they are all very good instructors as well. This is a unique place.

    A shooting estate with a wide variety of drives, great game and very friendly shooting staff! If you are accompanying someone and aren't into shooting, the great food, friendly staff and surroundings will make a weekend to never forget. The only thing i did not like about the weekend, was going home. I Highly recommend this shooting estate to people whom are interested in a high-end UK shooting weekend a 1,5 hour drive from the city of London!

    Great house, friendly people but lacking heart and birds since the old owner passed away. Some of the top drives in the UK but there should be more birds. From personal note it is annoying to have three drives. Conholt has great potential ready to be unlocked.
