Game shooting forms an important part of Brudenell Estates. Deene Park shoot is well established as a result of the leadership and dedication of Robert Brudenell and his Head Keeper, Gavin Chambers. They have developed the shoot into an exciting offering with a range of drives to suit all abilities. The Game Keepers have worked hard to develop new drives, improve the cover crops and release pens. We are pleased to say this enables us to show some challenging birds.
Pheasant shooting at Deene Park continues to be a very traditional experience, providing good quality sport in open farmland or within mixed woodlands. There are nine drives specifically designed for pheasants.
Deene Park is becoming well known as one of Northamptonshire’s leading partridge shoots, providing challenging shooting amidst a well-managed landscape. There are ten drives specifically designed for partridges.
Deene Park prides itself on its hospitality. The shoot day starts with a welcome and coffee in the old tea rooms. Lunch is provided by our own chef and again is served in the Old Kitchen Tea Room. We offer a wonderful menu of locally sourced food, with a choice of ten main courses. At the end of the shoot we offer a welcoming cup of hot tea and cake.
Predominately we host 200 bird days, however larger days can be catered for to suit your requirements.
