About your host at Bretby and Buildwas Park Estates: Team, Bretby and Buildwas Park Estates. Bretby Park,Derbyshire and Buildwas Park,Shropshire offer Game Shooting of the highest quality with days being catered to a client’s specific needs with bags ranging from 150 upwards. At Bretby Park, the Partridge shoot is one of the leading shoots in the area. We also offer Mixed days and Pheasant–Only Days. Buildwas Park, Shropshire has some of the finest Pheasant Shooting found in Shropshire and will challenge even the most experienced shots. This is an unspoilt, traditional, sporting estate showing some fine pheasants from mature hardwoods. We actively encourage Roving Syndicates to come and experience the thrill of shooting at these two very different but equally impressive shoots.

­­­­­­Game shooting experience at Bretby and Buildwas Park Estates: The Pheasant shoot covers 1,200 acres with mature woodlands strategically planted over 50 years ago specifically for Pheasant shooting and some game crops have been added in more recent times. The landscape affords challenging Pheasants especially with the renowned ‘Traps’ drive on Wenlock Edge and there is magnificent snap shooting in the mature woodlands. The Partridge shooting is an excellent example of traditional sport, with the birds shown over hedges and rolling valleys and in the months of September, October and to the middle of November the partridge shooting dominates and the rest of the season is given over to pheasant shooting with some showing of partridge too. Pheasants are demanding coming from woodland and cover crops. Click here for quick link country guide.
