Testimonials

Absolutely first class experience from start to finish. Friendly and professional service from Jessica and her fabulous team from initial enquiry through to the day itself and beyond. Targets and drives tailored to your teams skill set with easily the best catering I have ever experienced on a shoot day – you will not leave hungry! We will 100% be back again soon! Thanks again from Watling JCB.

Andy Waterfield

We visit Jess and the team every year for a birthday event to start the summer off, and every year we book again whilst there! From start to finish Jess is a fantastic host and the organisation is second to none.

Shooting, you get what it says on the tin, its simulated game, various drives Partridge, grouse, driven game perfect for the experienced as well as beginners. Phillip is always on hand to help out those less experienced or even first timers!

Now the hospitality, the food is amazing I would thoroughly recommend the Scotch Eggs!! and Jess tailors our day to our requirements from breakfast in the morning , to 11’s and onto a meal and even choice of cake with coffee!

Quite honestly you get what you pay for, and I couldn’t recommend booking Quidenham Simulated Game more if I tried. so if you are thinking about a day , whether it be a full or a single gun, do it because you will not regret it.

FYI there is a Helipad should you wish to use flying as your mode of transport.

Joe Welham

I would highly recommend this venue. From my arrival to departure Jessica and her team provided excellent hospitality with outstanding service. The targets were fantastic and made a great shooting experience. Can’t wait to come again! Well done all!

Mark Warton

Philip gave my partner her first lesson today. He is an extremely warm and friendly man who made us instantly feel welcome. The way in which Philip is able to project his thoughts on shooting and turn it into simple instructions for someone to follow is incredible. I would without hesitation recommended anyone to go and see him for a lesson, not matter how long you’ve been shooting.

Liam Hoyle

Shot at Quidenham on Saturday 27 April 2024 & had a fantastic time. Jess & her team were very professional & friendly & I had the privilege of shooting with her father for the day which was an added bonus.

Everything ran like clockwork & the food & drink was amazing. I will certainly be booking further days soon.

Andrew Taylor

Fantastic experience yesterday at Quidenham Simulated Game Shoot with fellow NCFC partners. Thank you Norwich Football Club for the invitation and exceptional hospitality. We had a great time and would highly recommend.

Regency Security

Had an awesome day on Thursday at the Norwich City Football Club partners event, clay pigeon shooting at Quidenham Estate Shoot. An exciting and addictive activity, excellent company, fantastic hosts and incredibly well organised day. Would highly recommend giving it a go!

Stephen Perkins
Managing Director at Yellow Brick Mortgages Ltd

A fantastic partner networking event at Quidenham Estate Shoot with Norwich City Football club. Great to see lots of familiar faces and make some new connections

Contract Personnel
A wonderful day today with Norwich City Football Clun, a BIG thanks to Ben Morris and 3B Data Security for the “simulated clay shooting” opportunity. The instructors and hospitality were first class at Quidenham Estate Shoot highly recommend it. And who knew…I can hit a target after all (well a clay anyway!) 
 
Thanks to everyone for making the day so special.
Simon L

Everything, from the warm welcome from Jess and the team, the yummy sausage baps and excellent coffee, great fun with the shoot guys and gals (who were full of encouragement and confidence in me when I thought I’d be rubbish!), sloegasms and shooting juice with delicious elevenses, followed by more shooting and an even more delicious lunch all finished off with coffee and cake and great conversation.

Lisa Glynne
Partner at Fosters Solicitors LLP

Having attended simulated days at Quidenham on many occasions, I can say, that Jess, Philip and the team never fail to deliver. Excellent shooting, superb hospitality and a barrel of laughs!!

I would recommend it to anyone, from seasoned game shooters to complete newbies. Keep up the great work guys!

Joe Paterson owner of Anglian Plant Ltd

We held our first corporate shoot day here back in July, and what a fabulous day everyone had!

Jessica had everything organised and under control – even leading up to the event. As the organiser/host of our events this meant I could relax and enjoy the event with our clients. From the moment everyone arrived, to departure everything was ran perfectly. The food, the hospitality, the different drives and varying clays (suiting our shooters varying skill levels).

Jessica has this day down to a tee. If you want a simulated game day – this is the one to book. See you in 2024!

Kelly Cartwright owner of CORE Recruiter

Thank you team, for such an enjoyable day’s shooting. The way in which you ran the day has totally changed my opinion of clay shooting. I have never seen clays fly like that before! It was great to feel like I wanted to shoot well, but not feeling under pressure to do so made it so much fun. The hospitality was spot on, just like a game day should be. On the final drive my gun jammed, with one live cartridge in it. The way in which you dealt with this, by removing the gun from the shot and taking it to Philip Webster Gunsmiths to get repaired and made safe is huge credit to you all. Not to charge me for this was incredibly generous as well. Thank you and best of luck for the future. Hope to see you again soon.

Justin Morfoot

Went to Quidenham Estate Shoot for the first time, Saturday 16th September.
What an absolutely brilliant experience, from the moment of arrival, until departing, the hospitality, food, and general friendliness of the staff was amazing.
Jessica, our host, was superb throughout the day.
If you want to try a simulated game day, I can not recommend this place highly enough.

James Coleman

Great cleys for all abilities shown in a safe and friendly environment. Delicious food and drinks to compliment the day

Charles Bellamy

Thank you so much for everything today. Max, one of our new guns, commented that “perfect day, nothing to improve” my thoughts exactly. Thank you again

Ian McAuley
Just want to say a massive thank you for hosting us yesterday! We all had a fantastic day shooting with you, I can’t thank you enough for being such fantastic hosts and putting up with us all as I’m sure we weren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but you took it in your stride and made a day to remember.
Toby has some horrific blisters and annoyingly still has his dignity to everyone’s disappointment! I don’t think we’ll ever be seeing the dress again!
The food was also excellent and the drink equally as good, none of us ever had an empty glass, you’ll certainly be seeing some of us back again and anyone that asks about yourselves as I think the boys will highly be recommended to anyone that’s thinking of doing something similar. We were all seriously impressed with the day!
Thank you so much and all the best in the future
Joe Gunnell
You won’t be disappointed

Returned to Quidenham again today for a second time well what can I say we thought it was amazing the first time but how wrong were we, today was sensational, the work that goes into your day from Jess, Philip and her team made it yet another day we won’t forget in a hurry the clays were presented so well the new drives are so worth a look, the food from her catering team was as good as any high-class restaurant simply beautiful and flavoursome, I’m not going to tell you about the scotch eggs your have to find out, but I don’t think I’ll ever have one as good again thanks again for making the whole team laugh and smile today
Ian

I have been to two stag do simulated shoots run by Jess. Great host, great refreshments, brilliant shooting.

Can’t recommend enough.

Scubatris

Recommend a day here , either an experienced shooter or complete novice you will be assured of a warm welcome , hospitality is first class , food and drinks through the day adds to the real game shoot experience!
Fantastic presented clays from a variety of drives tailored to the shooters , high , low , driven , crossers , curling just as you would get on a real game day
Fantastic value for money as you can easily come away having fired 400 cartridges , a lovely estate soaked in shooting history , not my first day with them and definitely not my last ! Steve

Diana C

Fabulous day out . This is the third time we have shot here and from start to finish a perfect days shooting . The hosts cannot do enough for you and the hospitality is 5*.

Sooo – today was my second visit to Quidenham . . . . . and none of the wow factor from my first visit was diminished one iota !
Outstanding hospitality as always from the utterly incomparable Jessica & Philip Thorrold and their team – brilliant targets, including some ‘frustratingly challenging’ ones (in a very good way !) – every stand different to my last visit – a great craic with guns and hosts alike – and catering to die for !!
The best simulated game shooting experience ever – can’t wait for the next one !!!
Nick Bignell
Wasn’t sure what to expect however the experience far outweighed any expectations. It was a super fun day with friends and the layout provided by Jess and her team was incredible. I’m still buzzing and cannot wait to return. Thank you QE!

A really great experience, very well run, Jess and her team all very helpful (only my second time shooting) and plenty of delicious refreshments.
Gary N
Ingleton Wood LLP hosted a truly excellent corporate event at Quidenham Estate Shoot on Friday 22nd July 2022. A group of 12 representatives from Kier Construction, RG Carters, Morgan Sindall, Dodd Group, and CPS had a day clay shooting (and eating!) under the superb organisation and watchful eye of Jess and her loyal team. Breakfast rolls and coffee to start, then 4 drives and over 3500 of cartridges later interspersed with elevenses, led onto a well earned lunch at the shooting lodge and a good group chat about the days events and business over more coffee and beverages. What a great way to spend a Friday, and be wined, dined, and looked after. Amazing setting, team, organisation, shooting, food, and attention to detail. Can’t wait for the next one!
Tim Colman
Brilliant experience and a well run event. Fantastic day shooting, knowledgeable team and good food. Would definitely visit again and would recommend for any corporate or events.

A truly amazing place with a fabulous set-up for shoot days with the added extra bonus of lovely people to make the day extra special. The food and hospitality is second to none,
A huge amount of gratitude to Jessica for hosting and making the day so great.
I would highly highly recommend Quidenham Shoot Days to anyone.

Paul J

To be honest the whole day was excellent from arrival and being greeted by Jessica and her team, bacon rolls and coffee and meeting the other guests.
Then four drives with a break for refreshments mid way and finishing with a superb sit down meal late afternoon, discussing the days events around the table with your fellow guests, lots of fun and laughter throughout, it was just great.
When it was time to leave you wanted to do it all over again, and hoping maybe, you could all meet up again soon… A first class event!

HowardWiseman

John Andrew

Such an incredible simulated day at Quidenham Estate Simulated Game Shooting with our ladies!! Nothing but smiles all day, come rain or shine!!

Great way to spend a day, hospitality is spot and set in a nice area. As good as any driven game day if not better.
Lewis Erith

Absolutely cracking day from start to finish. Lovely atmosphere, first class hospitality and a really well run simulated day. 5 drives, all very different and testing in different ways. We took 8 guests along and everyone has commented how much they enjoyed the day.

Thank you very much to Jessica and Philip and their team. We will definitely look to make a return at the beginning of the next season.

Mark Hudson

Lovely Ladies Day! Well organised, great hosts, expert ( very!) guidance on hand as required, tasty home made catering, all in some beautiful settings. The clays kept coming! Whilst individually booked, the group gelled and already booking up a date next year! Thank you Jess, Philip and your team.

Alison

This is the finest clay shoot I have been too. The relaxed and friendly atmosphere eases any nerves on arrival. The direction throughout the day is excellent. Regular breaks and time to chat and tell stories of the one that was ‘winged’.

Food and beverages were ‘out of this world’.

Friendly and welcome advice given to ensure that each gun is making the most of their day!

Faultless!

Adrian H

The drives at Quid are pretty unique. I’ve shot a lot of sim days and it was really nice to see the organisers really pushing to make it as similar to a game day as possible. Hospitality was spot on I’ve never been too full to finish from a shoot day before which says a lot!! Can’t wait for our next Country Girls UK day here again in June!
Tania101

Cannot fault the day from arrival with coffees teas and bacon rolls and you are made to feel welcome from start to finish . Targets are well set out and challenging enough for the top guns and the average shooter can still have a lot of fun and enjoy his day . sure if you wanted the targets to cater for top guns or the average team Jess would sort this so you had the day you enjoyed . The catering is first class and everybody is friendly and up to make the day fun . This is the third day our gang has visited and everybody wants to go back again after Christmas . Well done to all the team have a good Christmas Derek.

Derek123853

What a fantastic experience! Everything thought out to perfection right down to the last little details! Philip and Jessica’s hospitality is second to none! Everyone is catered for exceptionally and Jessica and Philip always strive to meet everyone’s personal needs! An outstanding range of targets that suit everyone’s abilities so there’s something for everyone and your barrels certainly don’t get cold and can easily go away 2 slabs of cartridges light if not more! Beautiful woodlands to shoot in, with a background story to every drive! Couldn’t recommend a simulated day at Quidenham enough! Will certainly be back again soon! Thanks for an exceptional day Jessica and Philip?

Chloe Y
A really good sim shoot. I doubt if you could find a better bespoke shoot anywhere. Everything centres around the client, the clays are challenging and fun, the food delicious and the team are excellent and very professional. Go and see for yourself!
Alison Hosford
Amazing day out!! So well organised and planned out. Top notch hospitality and food!! And of course excellent sim drives in a natural environment
Clarke137
I’ve shot simulated days at Quidenham Estate Shoot a number of times over the last year and my only regret is that I wish I would have found it sooner!! Fantastic shooting tailored to however your team would like, fantastic hospitality and fantastic food ! As close to a real driven day as you could possibly imagine and can’t wait until my next visit !
Daniel Goss
5 out of 5 Stars – I highly recommend Quidenham (As a whole experience). The hospitality is second to none, Jessica & Phillip are so welcoming & helpful, the food is fantastic! The drives are FANTASTIC, a real mix of targets from crossing birds, Duck, partridge & driven pheasants, mixing up every drive with so many targets in the air, you can easily shoot 2 slabs – The drives are also set in woods which make it beautiful scenery. Overall a brilliant day out!
Yasmin Hempstead
One of the best simulated clay shoots I’ve been on! I’ve shot at Quidenham 3 times this year and have always come away happy and wanting to go more! Hospitality is amazing and everyone is so friendly. The variety of clays are fantastic and certainly don’t give your gun a chance to get cold. Every time I’ve been I’ve easily shot through 3 slabs which shows how many clays you get a chance to shoot at. Looking forward to getting back there in 2021!
Sammie

Absolutely wonderful day. Jess and Phillip were the perfect hosts. An excellent time and looking forward to going again. ??

Robert Elliott

Chris Brown

Been on two simulated clay days at Quidenham now and would fully recommend it to anyone! Enough clays to keep your gun hot and to come away a slab or two of cartridges lighter. Always a good laugh and good hospitality! Can’t wait to come on another day.

Jayne Perry
We visited Quidenham for a Simulated day at the beginning of April. It was fantastic from the moment we arrived, the hosts were wonderful, food fantastic and the drives themselves were excellent, a good mixture of birds to really test all guns.
Thank you so much Jess and team, we look forwards to shooting with you again soon!
Natalie Symonds
I was lucky enough to be invited on a friends birthday for a simulated game shooting day in total we had 10 guns, when we arrived we were greeted by Jess and Miles who were in charge for the day, coffees and teas on offer along with bacon rolls to start the morning, after a briefing on safety and what the day had in store for us we were taken in a lovely tidy trailer to the 1st of 4 drives, we all had a certain peg to stand by then it was game on clay targets coming of traps high in the air lots of targets but it didn’t feel
Like you had to reload as quick as possible with clays going over an empty gun, we then had a short break while the Quidenham team arranged the second drive which gave us time to have a quick drink after the 2nd drive we was back for 11s for tea coffee cake and an odd beer we then done the 3rd 4th drives and back again for lunch which was ordered by the birthday boy, burgers and hotdogs salad and desert and a beer if required, I think I can speak for all of the lads who came a long for the day, that we all really enjoyed it and had a great laugh along the way, thanks Jess and Miles great work ??
Ed Davies
Attended Quidenham clay and game day today, truly amazing day from start to finish. Philip and Jess wonderful hosts with a mixture of game and clay stands made the day go with a swing. Food was amazing can not recommend this enough.
Glenn Wilson
First shoot of the season and it was brilliant! Such a lovely day with a combination of clays and game. Food was delicious! You should be very proud of everything that you have achieved. I would highly recommend the day. Thank you for such an enjoyable day!
Sophie Bowes
The shoot at Quidenham yesterday was a new experience and I would like to thank Jessica and her farther Phillip and all who contributed to making it such a wonderful day. The warm reception set the tone for the day and with a start like that we were onto a winner. The idea of having clay shoots interspersed with and game shoots was a good idea and I believe that all guns enjoyed the day. However, not least was the quantity and quality of the food produced for the guns, this was amazing I include in this the bacon rolls on arrival, the exceptional elevenses, with sloe gin and the main lunch with wine, port and a lovely selection of cheese and including the tea, coffee and cake at the end of the day.
Once again thank you all very much for the way in which we were looked after, I would highly recommend your shoot.
Shaun P Broaders MBE.
Lynn Austin
The whole experience it’s run by a shooting family for Shooting people with expert advice at hand
Andre White

Had a really good day at Quidenham. It was a brilliant day out with a couple of mates and a good way to meet some new people. The shooting was spot on, a number of varied drives with a chance to stand on different stands. Hospitality was superb, the whole day was hosted very well at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys shooting and wants to get into it.

Bob Evans

We visited Quidenham for a Simulated day at the beginning of April. It was fantastic from the moment we arrived, the hosts were wonderful, food fantastic and the drives themselves were excellent, a good mixture of birds to really test all guns. Thank you so much Jess and team, we look forwards to shooting with you again soon!

Natalie Symonds

Just had a fantastic day at Quidenham on a simulated day, went on my own, received a warm welcome from all there, great friendly group of guns soon made friends, four drives on the day two guns on a peg, one shoot one loading then swap over, used over 400 cartridges so plenty of shooting.

Hospitality was first class food and drink choice excellent, I’d recommend a day here to anyone.

My thanks to Jess the shoot captain for putting a great day together and my thanks to the ladies who helped out.

I will definitely be returning!

Steve Carroll

Two visits this year great days out. Fantastic shooting (very hot barrels) and hospitality. Can’t wait to do it again. Thank you all at Quidenham for two memorable days.
