Haddeo was brought to fame by the legendary Sir Edward (Ned) Goschen in the days when it was shot as ‘Pixton’ and for many years has been cited as an epitome of Exe Valley driven shooting. With a combined 6,000 acres, the Estate offers an outstanding spectrum of high-bird drives situated around the magnificent Exe Valley.
Covering some truly beautiful terrain, many of the drives are set along the Haddeo River and the Exe with a ford crossing at the old village of Bury – a setting both spectacular and daunting. Famous drives such as St Paul’s present a ‘leisurely’ flow of soaring Pheasants seen way over the treetops. A truly unforgettable sight for spectator and sportsman alike.
Be prepared for Brookside, Lloyd’s, Swine’s Cleave, Beech Cover, Buckley’s and Woodcock Corner drives.
At Haddeo most dishes are cooked by Adam Fanson, our resident Chef. A modern twist on traditional shooting lunches to involve large sharing platters and seasonal roasts. Set in ‘The Tent’ this is a thoroughly different take on a classic shooting lunch with wonderful surroundings in a magical space.
