In an extremely pretty Devonshire setting, the Stuckeridge shoot offers a rich, dynamic variety of high-quality driven Pheasant. Steep woods of oak and Douglas fir flank the Iron Mill Stream that nearby joins the Exe and breaks are often held in the fishing hut by the tributary. In this beautiful setting across an old iron bridge, come sweeps of soaring birds of the sort one truly equates with Exmoor.
On other drives such as Ash Cross the Guns are lined up through the bottom of the cleave and with the curve of a steep Devon rise above, Pheasants glide high over the horizon.
Stuckeridge offers an unostentatious atmosphere enhanced by the team of old friends that make up the loading, picking up and beating teams. This infectious enthusiasm and a fantastic all-round day will appeal to Guns and their non-shooting guests alike.
Signature drives are Grattens, Stoodleigh Moor, Larches and Iron Mill.
Lunch is served in a woodland bothy, where JC Le Grand perhaps roast chicken or venison, perhaps slow cooked lamb, ham or hot pies. Wicked puddings like treacle tart, apple strudel, chocolate fudge are too good to resist.
