Went with my husband for an introductory lesson. I had been target shooting many years before but never at moving targets and my husband had never held a gun at all. Emily took us for our lesson and was so patient and explained everything to us we were surprised when we actually hit the clays. We had a fabulous time... More

My husband is very experienced (been shooting pheasants etc since small boy, now 60+ years), my 18 year old girl and my 20 year old son, both shot clays before a couple of times before and a 20 year old Dutch boy...

Treated to a tuition session here as a birthday present with friends. Professional very friendly instructors who really know the sport inside out. Great woodland venue with many different shoots and challenges. Well worth the money. Shop and cafe onsite. Loads of parking. Will be going again very soon. I think you need to book well in advance as it... More

Had a great couple of hours learning to shoot! We were a group of 13 girls and by the end of the session were shooting great thanks to the guidance of Bob & Trevor! Would highly recommend!

Visited our beck shooting school to give clay shooting a try. As total beginner see were slightly nervous, luckily we had a great instructor (Trevor lake), Trevor talked and demonstrated us though everything at a great pace and gave us lots of good tips. Unfortunately he made it so enjoyable 2 hours flew by and we were eager for more.... More

I have been using this place for years and discovered flaws in my clay shooting skills which I never knew existed. This is an enjoyable place to patronise with helpful and polite staff, challenging stands and a reasonable catering facility.

We booked for a shoot at the Purbeck Shooting School via the advertised website The Big Shoot website which is where Google points you if you put in ‘clay pigeon shooting in dorset’. The website is dreadful. When we phoned they said they couldn’t book as the shooting venue was closed. Isn’t that the point of a central booking site,... More
