Wellshead, England

The Wellshead Estate is home to a true Exmoor Shoot.

Situated near the village of Exford in the middle of the moor itself, Wellshead is without doubt one of our most beautiful shoots anywhere in the UK.

Extending to 1500 acres of wild moorland and steep valleys, the shoot is capable of showing really good quality pheasants. The owner and the headkeeper are passionate about continued improvements and this is borne out year-on-year with new drives, new tree planting and adjusted and expanded areas of game crop.

This represents a fantastic opportunity to shoot superlative pheasants in stunning surroundings. The day is centred around a small cottage situated in the middle of the shoot and the hospitality here is amongst the best on Exmoor. Home produced beef, great quality food and wines ensure that everyone leaves lunch well fed and watered.

The Shoot is run exactly along the lines of the owner’s own days and, as a result, a very friendly and non-commercial atmosphere prevails. For good, early season shooting, this is a really terrific venue.

"Wellshead is one of the most charming sporting estates on Exmoor."Jeremy B, Bristol

"I've been shooting at Wellshead for just under 10 years and it seems to be getting better and better every year - keep up the good work."Alex S, Surrey
