Glanusk Estate is revered for the spectacular beauty and sheer majesty of its setting.

Perfect Country

Nestled amongst the beautiful, peaceful and idyllic countryside of the Usk Valley in the Brecon Beacons, Glanusk is one of the largest privately owned Estates in Wales. The topography and the views are simply breathtaking.The estate is a mixture of wild open mountains perfect for high flying partridge and pheasant shooting, steep wooded valleys and small hedged fields that combine to make perfect game shooting terrain in the heart of Wales. 

The Experience

The shooting is a mixture of woodland, parkland and hill drives. But what all the drives have in common is the speed and height of the birds. New drives have been created and all of these follow the example of Tan-y-Lan (a drive that is spoken of with reverence by those who know the shooting at Glanusk) which regularly produces birds at 200-300 feet plummeting off the top of the mountain. These are some of the highest pheasant in Wales - a real challenge!

Across our sporting estates, we understand that however good the sport, the warmth of your welcome and the quality of hospitality and the knowledge and competence of the team are vital ingredients of a successful day game shooting and we pride ourselves on acheieving this.

“ We dropped some of the less challenging drives, They've been replaced with more of the high bird drives that show Glanusk off at its best. We're delighted with the results and we'll go further in the future seasons with at least four more drives to extend the most ambitious shots”

“ This is fantastic ground, It's so rare for the setting and the topography to combine so perfectly for shooting. It could have been made for it”

- Mark Coleman

“ That was a magical day, exceptional in every respect apart from the marksmanship of the guns. I'm reverting to my side by sides! You take such obvious pride in running your shoot in a very personal ( and remarkably relaxed) way and all my guests loved the day. Lunch was immaculate, wines too.”

“ Thank you for looking after us all so well, I thoroughly enjoyed my day and could not have had a better day. Lunch was delicious and a long way removed from the normal shoot fare!”
