Find Accommodation near 'Woodland Park Shooting Ground'


Woodland Park Shooting Ground offers clay shooting in a beautiful location near Brecon. Set in ancient woodland between the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons, the park provides the perfect environment for simulated sporting targets for people of all ages and abilities.

Whatever level of shooting you're at, you'll spend your day shooting, taking in the scenery and being coached by the owner John Butland who is a fully-qualified clay shooting coach. He is also a registered firearms dealer so also has a wealth of experience in gun-fitting.

On arrival you are welcomed with tea, coffee and homemade cakes from the office (which has a step) but there is seating outside. The owner has future plans to add a new clubhouse which will be fully accessible.
 
Woodland Park requires all shooters to use their cartridges, no other cartridges are acceptable. No licence necessary.
 
You do require good eyesight and the ability to hold a gun (assistance with loading can be given). The guns are single barrel which means they are lighter and have no obvious kick back effect. You will also be required to wear ear defenders.
 
** Please note there are no accessible toilets on site however the Felin Fach Griffin dining pub is located just 5 to 10 minutes away and they are happy for shoot visitors to use their facilities. Their toilet has a left hand transfer (see picture 9) and their dining room is fully accessible along with a large outside dining area,

Comments

The shooting at Woodlands Park was an eye opener because although I had fired a shotgun before it was very much hit some and miss a lot! This time it was a different story because the instructor was so good and very patient. He took me through the safety aspects, the gun parts and the loading aspects, then tested my master eye (which is something I had never heard of) before I was let loose with live ammunition.

The gun was a 12 bore single barrel which I found much easier to hold as it wasn't as heavy as a double. It was very strange at first because I had to close my left eye whereas before I had always closed my right eye, but once I had listened to what John the instructor had told me I started to hit more clays than I missed.

I thoroughly enjoyed the session and would go back, so if you have not tried clay shooting before and fancy a go then I would whole heartedly recommend going along for a taster session. Being greeted with a cup of tea/coffee and homemade cakes was an added bonus! by Frank Napper on 31 July 2013
