As guests at Sampsons Farm Country Hotel we are able to arrange for you a series of country pursuits and activities to suit all needs and budgets.

The activities that can be arranged for you include:

This is a sporting clay shoot where the guns move from “Drive to Drive” thus giving the realism of driven pheasant shooting over a number of challenging positions. Clay and cartridges are provided. Also hire of shotguns can be arranged.

"Thank you so much for a very enjoyable, albeit wet and windy, morning at your Clay shooting grounds. The ground you have there is ideal for showing Sporting Clays and replicates the best drives and the best pheasant shoots in the South West extremely well. The challenge for the experienced shot but able to be tailored for the absolute beginner." - D.Rice Secretary River Exe and Tributaries Association.
