This shooting ground has its home on the magnificent 1400 acre Coniston Estate in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, near Skipton. It is one of the few venues in the country to have been awarded 'Premier' status from The Clay Pigeon Shooting Association, so you can be assured some of the best tuition and facilities in the country.
Fully trained instructors will help you make the most of your time at the ground and show you the skills needed to be a successful shooter. Try your hand at shooting many different types of clays as they mimic different animals such as rabbits, pheasants and partridge. There is even an 86ft tower so if you find those basic shots too easy to hit you can aim your sights a little higher!
