Farley Hall covers 1,750 acres of mixed farmland, hills, open arable fields and ancient woodlands and easy access to the M4, just 45 miles from Central London. Farley Estate is an ideal location to host your shoot during the season.
We think it’s pretty special to tramp the dry and crackling stubble fields in shirtsleeves and shoes instead of wellies, in those milder days when summer gradually submits to early autumn.
As dyed-in-the-wool traditionalists, we make absolutely no apologies for loving the idea of preserving the traditionally presented partridge, just flicked up like starbursts over the hedges.
The estate also runs good pheasant days too in their ancient parkland. In fact, once we're into November and December, the shooting on the estate seems to really step up a gear; with autumn behind us, the pheasants are now well-feathered, fully match-fit and flying hard. There's little to match the high-octane thrill of double-gunning on a really busy drive on a proper wintery day - the adrenaline, the noise and the craic, regardless of whether your day is for entertaining clients and colleagues or your buddies in a roving syndicate.
Lunch is taken in the Hall at the centre of the estate, prepared by a culinary whizz who has been cooking at the highest level for decades.
All in all, Farley comes highly recommended - that's why we take eight or more teams here every year.
