The Welsh Borders offer some of the most spectacular shooting in Britain and the Downton Estate competes with the very best in the area.

Its steep valleys and high hills attract shooting parties from across the globe. But it is the Downton Gorge drive, where the guns, standing on the banks of the rushing River Teme, shoot the high, testing birds driven from the cliffs above that make it so exceptional.

The shoot also offers a dedicated shooting complex in Old Downton Lodge, which, with its carved oak, huge open fire and magnificent dining table harks back to a golden sporting age.
