The game shoot at Hendra Barns offers quality pheasant, partridge and duck shooting, including woodcock and snipe, in stunning surroundings.
Ken Evans carefully manages the land, rearing significant numbers of game birds, and has done for 17 years. Ken has developed some varied and challenging drives shooting off woodland, moorland and game covers. Combined with the beautifully converted barn for dining, Hendra Barns is a very special shooting experience.
We pride ourselves on a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Its is the Cornish way. Hendra’s gamekeeper is introduced on arrival, along with the team of beaters and pickers-up, many of whom have been working the shoot for years. And once the drives begin, refreshments and Hendra Barns’ homemade snacks are delivered to the party in the field.
Country cuisine is a really special addition to the Hendra game shoot. Guests are spoilt with chef-prepared dishes on each day of their stay, in addition to the full-shoot supper, all sourced from Hendra or the close surrounding area. Hendra Barns’ chef Franck creates delicious, healthy masterpieces using traceable and sustainable produce, and has developed some unique game flavourings with our on-site smokehouse.
Shooting is available as individual guns or as a group, with full-board accommodation in the barns, where a variety of bedrooms are available, in addition to the huge dining and living area with floor to ceiling windows leading out onto a veranda with uninterrupted countryside views.
The bag varies between 100 – 200 birds on a typical driven shooting day, and we can also offer walked-up days for smaller groups. Our pricing varies according to guests’ accommodation requirements, but our core break includes three nights full-board accommodation with one 150-bird day’s shooting, priced at £580 per person, based on a party of nine guns occupying the barns.
We are very happy to build a tailor-made breaks to suit your party size and shooting desires. Please get in touch with your requirements, and we will endeavour to meet them.
NOT TO MISS! Driven duck, including an evening flight, is a particularly exciting shoot at Hendra available from mid-October.
