Challacombe was for some years managed by the nearby Castle Hill Estate where it first earned its great reputation, presenting us some of the most challenging partridge in the country whilst being surrounded by some of the most beautiful shooting scenery one can find. In 2015 additional land complementing the existing Challacombe grounds, meant new drives and the exciting option of pheasant added to the mix. This also enabled us to offer smaller, mixed days, through the latter months of the season.

Set in pure Exmoor landscape, the heart of the shoot is a reservoir surrounded by moorland. Through this, the birds are driven over the guns to astounding effect, offering dogs a veritable retrieving challenge. A wonderful spectacle for guns, dog handlers and onlookers alike.
