This is a well managed shoot which is efficiently run and provides some challenging and very enjoyable shooting. Trevor Homewood and his team pay attention to the finer details which ensured our day ran smoothly. The terrain provides some excellent drives with birds at heights to challenge and humble the best. A very memorable day.
Jim and I had an excellent day yesterday and we really enjoyed ourselves. I think we were rather fortunate with our pegs, particularly the last drive, where most of the birds unexpectedly came over numbers 1 and 2. We shot some lovely birds curling back over the top corner. We’re looking forward to our next outing.
Just a quick email to thank you and the team for a thoroughly enjoyable day on Saturday. Some Really high quality birds through the day. Certainley kicking myself that I don’t have any more days booked with you this season.
A well organised and friendly day, presenting some superb shooting. Thoroughly enjoyed the day all round, and compliments to Trevor & the team.
I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for your efforts on Saturday, it was a great day’s shooting (one of the best I’ve enjoyed) and I hope you enjoyed it as well.
I also just wanted to say that please let me know if anyone drops out of any of the shoots between 27 and 31 December – I believe you are only shooting on 30 December but if a peg frees up then I would be very keen to get involved.
A very enjoyable day – many thanks to you and your team. Can you advise me on any availability for 2015-16. I would very much like to book again.
Many thanks for a wonderful day, we all agreed today was the most we have enjoyed a day this season. We will definitely want to be booking again next season. So please send us your availability for next season when you have it as your day/days will be ones we want to book the most. A great day, loved it all, your beaters an pickers up were all first class, and deserve much praise, as do you and your keeper.
I have just shot my second day this season at Holborough and without doubt this is one of the best run shoots that I have had the pleasure of attending in thirty years of game shooting! Hospitality is first class as is the transport,food and attention to detail. Most important however is the quality of the presented pheasants which are equal to any that I have ever shot. My only hesitation in recommending this shoot is that they may not have any room for me next season!
I’ve just realised with a start that I haven’t dropped you a line to thank you for the day’s shooting you and your team laid on for us on Wednesday – my apologies, I can only blame a combination of too much travel and too many Christmas parties! I thought the team of guns were able to gel together well in a friendly atmosphere, and given your reservations about the weather there were some really good birds for us (not all of us took them, particularly me fast asleep on the first drive). The 3rd drive along the track stood out for me, particularly as I was also able to see the picker’s dogs hard at work in challenging terrain, which I really enjoyed.
Thoroughly enjoyable early season shoot. The birds flew well for the beginning of October, which augurs well for the season. I picked up a day to fill in my shooting diary and was very pleased with the day. The bag was easily made, the hospitality was great and I will certainly return. Many thanks to Trevor and his team.
Both me and my son Alex would just like to let you know we had a great day today and thank you for the warm welcome and your hospitality, you have a lovely place there and wish you well for the rest of the season ahead good luck
Just a quick line to say how much I enjoyed Saturday – and Thank You to you and Jake and the whole team for putting on another excellent day. I look forward to seeing you on 13th
A quick note to thank you and the wider team for an excellent day on Saturday. I appreciate all the hard work and professionalism that goes into making such a day go smoothly.
I believe that there are no further days available this season but would be grateful to be notified when you finalise your dates for next season as I will be certain to come back.
Once again, thank you and my best wishes to you and the team for the rest of the season
I just had my second day at Holborough and another first class day. High quality pheasants beautifully presented along with great hospitality to boot. Trevor and his team excelled again. I’m looking forward to my next day in 2 weeks time.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank yourself, Keith and all the beaters/pickers for a great sporting day yesterday. All the best for the remainder of the season and i hope to meet again soon.
Just a quick line to say thank you so much for Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot, the set-up, the other guns, beaters, and of course – the birds. Some of those off the tops of the trees were cracking birds and I can only imagine what they go like on a stiff wind. You are the wrong side of town for me to consider a regular gun, but I have to say I would be very keen to visit you again next season for a bought day. All the very best.
I was recently invited as a guest gun to a day at Holborough. Without doubt the care and attention paid by Trevor and his excellent team, made it a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable day. As one of 8 mixed ability guns Trevor was very careful to ensure that the birds were presented as sportingly and fairly as possible for all by very professional beaters – this showed great care and forethought. The high bird drives are absolutely first class – a real treat. Highly recommended. Cake delicious too!
Just a quick note to say thank you for yesterday’s shooting.I am assuming that we exceeded the bag and its quite plain to see that most people had some very good shooting.I liked the format of the last drive and think that without the wind that 6/7/8 would have some more earlier shooting etc. Its good to see lots of birds on the ground and some that were truly stratospheric on the last drive!
A massive thank you for a really enjoyable day on Saturday.
Holborough is exceptionally well run and a real treat!!
That one drive off the side of the hill was epic and they were far too good for me!
Thanks once again and hope to catch up soon.
Had a great day on this estate with some very challenging pheasants my team left wanting more, there’s no better testimonial than that!
Thanks for a good days shooting,was really good thoroughly enjoyed it, will definitely be back. Also where did you get your Sloe Gin from as it was very tasty.
A thoroughly enjoyable day on a lovely shoot. An abundance of challenging well presented birds, excellent hospitality all provided by a friendly team. I would highly recommend booking a day.
