Shooting fowl at Caerhays

Located in a sheltered valley overlooking a cove on the south Cornish coast, Caerhays Castle and its surrounding grounds are the stuff of Anglophile dreams.

Built in the 19th century, this picturesque estate offers guests the opportunity to experience old English hospitality and traditions, most notably game shooting. Over 80 days of shooting take place each year, with the shoot extending to over 4,000 acres and featuring at least 40 separate drives. All the game – predominantly pheasant but also partridge – is reared on-site from egg to bird by three full-time keepers, ensuring birds of the best quality. Shooting days are interspersed with round-the-clock refreshments, including a lavish post-shoot afternoon tea followed by a personal tour of the castle by its owner Charles Williams. During the shoot, guests may stay at The Vean, a luxury country house retreat overlooking the castle grounds. The top suite, the ‘Nancor’, offers glorious views down the Porthluney valley.
