Within a leisurely hour's drive of Madrid, our 9,000 hectare estate sits shadowed by the magnificent Sierra de Ayllon. This is a place of ancient contrasts, burnt red earth, crystal clear air and dizzying blue skies. As one of Spain's oldest hunting regions, the rugged terrain of Guadalajara is the perfect habitat for the perdiz rojo - red legged partridge, the corzo - roe deer, and, of course, the jabali - wild boar.
The shimmering light of the Spanish central massif, the sharp tang of pine, holm oak, wild rosemary and thyme, the crisp clear air and the promise of another exhilarating day's sport in this breathtaking landscape.
Butler del Prado are also pleased to present you with a destination that offers superb fly fishing amongst a spectacular landscape. Crystal clear waters, secluded valleys and the majestic Picos de Europa mountain range set the scene for Northern Spain’s best kept secret. The wild brown inhabiting these rivers can reach 3lb+ and will provide you with a truly, memorable fly fishing adventure.
With the rivers of the regions of Asturia, Cantabria and Palencia to choose from, our expert fisherman, Juan de Llanza, will guide and advise you throughout your trip. Depending on the time of year and river levels he will choose the river with the optimum conditions to give you the best opportunity for a fantastic fly fishing trip. Your success is his passion.

About your host at Butler del Prado: Ashley Butler, Founder. Ashley Butler is a passionate shot and keen fisherman. Based in the West Country he was brought up on a shoot where he was introduced to the beating line at the age of eight. He was hooked and from then on has enjoyed some of the finest shooting and fishing in the UK. He now runs his own shoot with the same traditions and values that he grew up with, providing hospitality and a sporting experience enjoyed by all. We believe that red-legged partridge shooting in Spain is some of the most exhilarating driven sport that you will take part in. With Butler del Prado it is no longer prohibitively expensive and therefore inaccessible for most of us – we can offer you cost-effective winged shooting at our stunning Spanish estate, with guns and guests left wanting for nothing.
Game shooting experience at Butler del Prado: Our estate is beautifully situated in the historic shooting area of Guadalajara, a short drive from the heart of Madrid. The rugged mix of rolling fields with barley and sunflowers, the matorral scrub studded with cork oaks, pines, juniper and a dense ground cover of wild herbs make for a natural landscape unchanged in centuries. This distinctive habitat results in fit, strong and hard-flying partridges ready to be expertly flushed from cover by trained beaters on foot and horseback. This is, quite simply some of the best driven partridge to be found in Europe. Unlike other estates we don’t insist on huge bag numbers or back to back days as we believe you’re here for the quality rather than the quantity. With driven days available from 300 birds you tell us what you would like and we will do the rest. If you choose to extend your trip we also provide smaller walked-up days, stalking and wild boar shooting. Non-shooting guests are more than welcome to join you.

Upcoming availability: Please contact the host for more information.
