Located less than a 15 minute drive from The Boars Head Hotel and Gastropub in Derbyshire, Doveridge Clay Sports is a perfect destination for some outdoor fun.
What To Do Whilst You’re There?
Located in the Ashbourne countryside, Doveridge Clay Sports is perfect for those that wish to try something different. Whether you have tried your hand at shooting prior to this, or you’re a complete novice that doesn’t know which end of the gun to hold, Doveridge can cater for all. For beginners looking to embrace Doveridge’s 70 acres of countryside, you can gather some friends for a “have a go” session. Depending on how many clays and cartridges you use, classes start at £45 per person and include the instructor as well as the equipment hire. Your lesson will cover everything from holding and loading the gun to dealing with recoil and mastering your shot. Whatever you choose, our dedicated teachers will give you a stress free and enjoyable experience to remember.
Alternatively, if you are more experienced and own your own shotgun, you can take lessons to hone your shooting skills. These are £50 an hour and more for however many clays and cartridges you use. The resident gun smith is also on hand to give your gun some TLC as and when required. With corporate packages, stag and hen parties all catered for too, Doveridge is the perfect location for any party. If you’re feeling confident, keep an eye on their website too for any upcoming competitions.
Food and Drink
In order to fuel your trip, you may be hoping to have a number of food and drink breaks. Doveridge Clay Sports can accommodate that with their Clubhouse. Overlooking a pond full of exciting wildlife, you can enjoy fresh snacks, hot and cold drinks and in the Summer, a mouth watering BBQ.
If you do opt to use Doveridge Clay Sports for a corporate event, the open fireplace and large function room make it the perfect setting. In addition, you will be able to order anything from a three course meal to a BBQ lunch from their menu. Whilst that should be enough to fuel your afternoon, you can then kick your feet up upon returning to the Boars Head hotel to enjoy some of the best gastropub food in Derbyshire.
As well as being fantastic for snacks, the Clubhouse also offers places to relax and unwind. Thanks to the open fireplace and the fantastic scenery, you can enjoy the surrounding countryside all year round. There are also separate male and female toilets. In terms of accessibility, the downstairs of the clubhouse is fully wheelchair accessible.
Within the Clubhouse, you’ll also be able to find the UK’s Premier Shotgun Dealer, Premier Guns. There, you’ll be able to browse and purchase their range of merchandise, clothing and guns.
