Driven Partridge & Pheasant shooting - England

Welcome to one of the most luxury and best Duck, Partridge & Pheasant shooting in Leicestershire - England 

Welcome to Belvoir Castle

Sitting at the heart of the Vale of Belvoir in Leicestershire lies Belvoir Castle. The Belvoir Estate offers a stunning backdrop to your sporting day, with its undulating scenery and beautiful ancient woodland. With its dramatic views, deep valleys, historic parkland and lakes the Belvoir Castle Estate is the perfect place to offer the finest Partridge, Pheasant and Duck Shooting in breathtaking surroundings. The highest quality driven birds, combined with the heritage and magnitude of the Castle makes for an experience never to forget

The Shoot

You can choose to shoot from one or two locations here at Belvoir – the Castle itself or at Croxton Park, just a few miles away. Shoot Captain Phil Burtt and his experienced team share a passion in making Belvoir one of the best shooting estates in the UK. There are many exciting drives to choose from on the 16,000 acre Belvoir Estate. With over 75 established drives, Belvoir is suitable for all levels of experience. No two drives are the same. Different locations, scenery, topography, wind and the natural instinct of the birds makes each and every drive a new experience.

Your shoot day will usually consist of four or five drives, with refreshment brakes during the day and late lunch at the end of the day when shooting finishes.

For those who wish to make any occasion extra special, accommodation can be provided at the Castle or Croxton Lodge, so why not come and stay with us as part of your days shooting and make it the ultimate shooting experience?

Belvoir Castle

Hosted by our wonderful staff and private chef a fully inclusive stay includes lunch, dinner, bed and breakfast served in the Castle’s magnificent stately rooms. The castle can accommodate 8 guns or 8 couples.

We have the famous Wellington Room where the Duke of Wellington stayed in the 1850’s or The King’s Rooms, which was devised by the 5th Duchess, Elizabeth so they would be suitable for Royal visitors. They remain today the most charming and popular rooms in the castle. We have many more state bedrooms and all have been adapted to accommodate overnight parties. They all have bathrooms and modern technology not normally expected in an old castle.

We serve pre dinner drinks in one of the state rooms or in the private drawing room followed by a delicious dinner of locally sourced ingredients from the Belvoir Estate and surrounding area. And if you want to “party” till dawn our fabulous shoot room turns into a night club at the click of a finger. Or you can simply enjoy a quieter nightcap in front of the roaring fire retiring to a cozy sitting room with your own private bar.

Croxton Park Lodge

Croxton Park Lodge is set just a stone draw away from Belvoir Castle, in the countryside of Croxton Kerrial. The lodge nestles in remote parkland with superb views over its own lakes.  Its luxurious interior has been sensitively decorated by the Duchess of Rutland to create a warm, friendly atmosphere that entirely compliments Belvoir Castle’s reputation as a first-class shoot experience.

Whether a day shoot or a stay of a few days, the Belvoir team will deliver the warmest welcome and hospitality to you and your guests. Within the backdrop of the Lodge, enjoy fine wines, roaring fires and top quality local ingredients cooked by our in-house chef – all these elements will make your day with us one to remember.

If you would like to have a shoot party and stay with us here at the Lodge, there are 8 fabulous bedrooms to choose from, all furnished to a very high standard. All bedrooms are en-suite and every detail is attended to for your stay.

What guests say

"We walked away feeling thoroughly looked after and privileged to have been on the day. Booked immediately for next year so we do not miss out. From the start of the booking we were taken care of by the team and that followed all the way thru to the the time they waived goodbye what a great occasion !"
