Stowell Park is an iconic Cotswold shoot with a pedigree of high quality shooting over many years. Home to Lord Vestey, Stowell Park is one of Gloucestershire’s best-kept shooting secrets. The shoot is set over two main valleys, with a number of memorable drives including Ballangers, Slades Clump and Oaks Bottom. There are plenty of challenging and enjoyable pheasants and partridges on this truly spectacular estate.
Guns arrive for coffee in the beautiful converted shoot barn with a huge roaring fire where we draw for pegs and then make our way to the first drive in the famous Stowell Gun Bus. Although Stowell is solely a private family shoot, our long standing relationship with the estate has meant we are able to sell a handful of days on this wonderful part of England which oozes old world charm.
Clients book year on year so availability is very limited, however with good notice we are able to find spaces for new teams. Shooting starts at Stowell in October.
The manor at Stowell Park is first recorded in 1086 when it was held by the Archbishop of York.
Heading to Oxford and then across along the A40 or from the South via the A429. The village of Yanworth can be found just off the Fosse Way.
Guns meet at the beautiful shoot lodge located in the middle of the village of Yanworth in the centre of the estate. The unique lodge has a huge open fire, the walls are adorned with stalking trophies from Stowell and the famalies other estate on the Isle of Jura. From there we draw pegs and head out across the estate for 4 drives before heading back for lunch. Typically we always stop for lunch and then head back out for a further 1 or 2 drives depending on the bag and light conditions. The shoot is very varied with valley drives and woodland drives over its vast size.
