Wilton Estate comprises some 14,000 acres of land in Wiltshire, running from Netherhampton, just outside Salisbury, west to Little Langford. Wilton House, the family home of the Earl and Countess of Pembroke, is a Palladian stately home built on the site of an 8th century abbey. The buildings and large tracts of land were granted in 1544 by Henry VIII to Sir William Herbert, subsequently created 1st Earl of Pembroke.

Wilton Estate is typical Wiltshire mixed arable and beautiful, rolling chalk downland, bisected by the rivers Nadder and Wylye, affording spectacular views across the county. A day’s shoot will take place in various locations across the Estate. The Estate shoot places the emphasis on quality birds, and the primary aim is to provide an enjoyable day’s shooting for our clients.

Hosted by our experienced team, a typical day will start with bacon rolls and coffee at Wilton House, where the guns will be welcomed and briefed by our shoot host. A usual day comprises of three drives in the morning with a break for ‘ elevenses ’, which will be taken in the field, followed by another drive after lunch. Lunch will be served in the Wyatt dining room, a former House kitchen now repurposed as the family shoot dining room designed by Lady Pembroke.

Complimentary afternoon tea and a tour of the main state rooms within the House, a backdrop for many Films and TV series such as The Crown and Bridgerton, can be arranged on request.

The Wilton Estate shoot has been running for a number of years, providing very enjoyable shoot days in this quintessential English setting with friendly, experienced and knowledgeable staff showing top-quality birds.
