I took my husband for his birthday present I was so pleased to have booked it for myself too."

" My wife & I were treated to a 50 clay shoot by our children as a surprise Christmas present and I have to say how happy we were that they did! It was brilliant, the most fun we have had in ages! Our instructor Nick was excellent; he took us through the whole process from the very important safety aspects as well as the basic do's & don'ts for hitting those elusive clay pigeons! The time seemed to fly by which is always a sure sign of a great day, we can't wait to return to do it all again. Finally what also impressed us was the attention to detail and patience that Nick showed us and not only that but we also turned up a little late but that didn't seem to matter, we were not rushed at all despite our session ending 20 minutes after the facility should have closed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend "The Big Shoot" to everyone young & old. "
" Both my wife and I were complete novices having never even picked up a gun before. Our instructor Charles was excellent and under his expert tuition we were soon actually hitting clays! A great experience which helped us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Thanks to all. "
" This was a birthday treat for my son and grandson. Neither had ever used a shot gun opr firearm before. My son hit 26 out of 32 clays and my 14 year old grandson hit 22 out of 32. Both had a brilliant experience and were full of praire for the facilities equipment and all of the Staff. Thanks very much. They will definitely be visiting again - and hope for warmer weather next time !!"
" A marvellous treat. The Big Shoot was a big hit with my son's birthday party of friends."
" Overall, very pleased and wanting to do it again! Thank you to the Skipton site staff including the receptionist who was friendly (and accommodating when we arrived late) and to our engaging instructor."
