About Cotswold Fieldsports
At Cotswold Fieldsports, we provide simulated clay shoot days which are as close to a game shoot day as possible to extend the enjoyment of shooting into the summer months in the beautiful Cotswold countryside.
Our days are generally suited to more experienced guns, however we welcome less experienced guns and newcomers when accompanied by an instructor.
Starting at the local pub with breakfast provided, each day begins with a briefing before moving on to shoot a couple of drives before elevenses.
The clays are designed to simulate driven pheasant and partridge and more drives will be shot after the elevenses break.
Our days can easily be tailored to suit your requirements, taking into account the experience of the team of guns, and dates can be arranged to suit if you are looking to book a full day - please contact us to discuss.
Our shoot days begin at The Plough Inn, Chapel Lane, Cold Aston, Gloucestershire, GL54 3BN.

The historic, ice-age carved valleys of the Cotswolds make for an idyllic setting for our days.
Set just outside Bourton-on-the-Water, Grove Farm boasts a variety of challenging valleys for the more experienced gun as well as more gently rolling drives for the less experienced guns looking to improve their shooting.
Our simulated shoot days begin and end at The Plough Inn, Cold Aston who provide all the food for the days.
The Plough Inn offers a warm welcome, real ales, craft beers, cracking wines and delicious home cooked freshly prepared food.
A firm favourite with the locals, The Plough are proud to support the local farmers and have an ever changing, seasonal menu always using the freshest and best ingredients they can get their hands on.
For those travelling from farther afield, accommodation is also available at The Plough.
