We travelled down for a weekends shooting and South West Shooting was our first venue. Wonderful warm and friendly welcome, relaxed but professional setup, great landscape and varying difficulty of tasks make for a highly recommended shoot!

Had a great time at southwest shooting school. Bill was fantastic! A great layout with traps for all abilities. Reasonably priced and in a lovely location. We stayed in 'the osborne hotel' in Ilfracombe which have gun cabinets.
