Spring At The Shooting Ground

Spring has sprung and the golden daffodils are fluttering and dancing in the breeze.


Why not treat a loved one or even a special friend to a gift voucher for clay shooting here at Coniston Shooting Ground.  We have a variety of vouchers available which can be purchased on-line, over the telephone or from the clubhouse.  Although we are unable to offer Archery or Air Rifle sessions at the moment, vouchers can be bought ready to use when the time permits.  All vouchers will be honoured if covid restrictions are not eased in the expected timeframe.


Under current restrictions we are only able to offer shooting lessons for experienced shooters who already know how to handle the gun.  We are hoping that we can open up to novice shooters as restrictions start to ease after 21st June.


Our café is open (Tuesday to Friday 11.30 am to 1.30 pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 am to 1.30 pm).  For the comfort of our guests, we have increased the size of our terrace, added new comfortable seating and a state of the art awning.


We have a large variety of guns available in our on-site gun room.  Viewing and demonstration of guns is available by prior appointment.


Our on-site shop is now open selling clothing and accessories for the discerning shooters.


Hopefully the weather will remain as warm and sunny as the welcome you will receive here at Coniston Shooting Ground.
