Dinmore stretches across two vast valleys which fall away to the River Lugg and fruit orchards below. The rolling landscape includes steep and gentle parts making for varied topography perfectly suited to creating an exciting and varied shoot day.
The mixed fauna and flora - ranging from magnificent old parkland and ancient woodland – to cover crops of maize and artichokes make an ideal combination for presenting a plentiful supply of very challenging birds high over the guns in the valleys below.
The shoot has been recreated by the current owners with an experienced team of keepers and has grown considerably in scale and quality in recent years. On average days, bags range from 300 to 500 birds and between 30 and 40 days are held each season.
Guns meet and lunch in the stunning purpose-built lodge – the hospitality set this shoot apart from the rest. Let days which are exclusive to Darbishire Sporting Agents.
Dinmore was the southern Marches headquarters of the Knights Hospitaller of Saint John of Jerusalem from around 1170 until the dissolution of the monasteries under King Henry VIII nearly 400 years later.
Based from the stunning shoot lodge, guns meet for a full breakfast before heading out onto the estate. Typically we would shoot 4 drives and return for a late lunch at 2.30.
Locally there are many good hotels including the Green Man at Fownhope and the Clive Hotel in Ludlow.
