A beautiful estate, showing fantastic partridges and pheasant.
Situated to the north of Ross-on-Wye, just beyond Gloucester, in Herefordshire, the Perrystone Estate extends to an area of 2,500 acres.
The Estate has a wonderful track record and has provided excellent shooting for several decades under the watchful eye of the current keeper who has been there for over 20 years.
The pheasant beat includes some very dramatic banks conveniently situated among well-established woodland and enhanced by plenty of cover crop. The partridge beats are in more open ground and incorporate steep gullies and banks which make for some very varied and exciting shooting.
The Estate is able to provide a few days of 150 to 200 birds for eight guns in September and October, purely for partridges, but once November starts the bags will show an increasing number of pheasants. These days tend to be for 250 to 300 birds per day.
If you have not been to this part of the world before then it is definitely worth the trip as the scenery alone is simply stunning. The River Wye meanders through the estate, enhancing an already magical place.
There are various good accommodation options, including country house hotels, private houses and cosy pubs, which complement the whole experience of a shooting trip to this part of the country.
