Our Shooting Grounds

We are one of the best shooting grounds in the UK. Our ever-expanding layout consists of 24 different shooting stands, each with a minimum of two traps; 3 High Towers ranging up to 120ft, Down-the-Line (DTL) and much more.

Set mostly within mature woodland with gravel pathways to guide you round the course; a range of covered stands so you’ll have fun whatever the weather and a welcoming clubhouse to relax in, you will never be disappointed with the vast array of different targets we offer.

From starter stands to technical targets, there are a range of driven, going away, teals, quartering, crossers, rabbits, overheads, loopers, battues, standards, midi`s and many other target types. The targets are regularly changed to keep things interesting, though there are a few signature stands that shooters are always keen to experience.

The Ground is available for individual practice with self-timer release clay traps; for tuition with any of our friendly and fully qualified coaches, or to try out a gun from the Gun Shop. It’s also the perfect venue for Corporate events and Stag or Hen parties.

We host a number of competitions and events throughout the year, including Ladies Days and Young Shots – please check our Events page for more details.

  • Located just outside Cheltenham in the heart of the Cotswolds – 8 minutes from Junction 11a of the M5 and easily accessible from London, the South West and the West Midlands
  • Ample hard-standing car park; gravel pathways for easy access around the entire ground
  • A range of covered stands to use in bad weather
  • Fully stocked Gun Shop with over 1000 guns in stock, including many pairs and Left Handed guns. Also cartridges, shotgun accessories, and an ever-growing range of Country Clothing

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what people have to say about us

This establishment has everything that the shotgun enthusiast could want. Facilities include over 20 shooting positions, dry paths between positions, easy parking, a well equipped gun shop and a welcoming café. Tuition is available for the absolute beginner to improvers and seasoned shots. All tuition is provided by expert instructors. The action is all self contained and clays are released by a card arrangement that not only releases the clays but totals up the number used. There are generally two clay positions at every stand with options to release either clay independently or both together. A great day out. Very difficult to suggest any way to improve this set up. Top rate. ~ TripAdvisor
The grounds at Coley’s are very attractive with trees, small valleys and some open ground all used to make the targets more “interesting”. The ground staff are very skilled indeed at setting up the traps, using the terrain to deceive the unwary shooter! With something like 20 Sporting stands to choose from there is a wide variety to choose from. The remote controlled traps have time delays as an option should you ever fancy some practice on your own. ~ TripAdvisor
