Driven Shooting

Partridge & phesant drives

Since the late 1800’s Stowlangtoft Estate has been home to a renowned game shoot. Among the distinguished list of past guests of the Estate is HRH Edward the Prince of Wales, later Kind Edward VII.

Today, the Stowlangtoft Estate shoot is owned and operated by Roger and John Catchpole. The Catchpole Family focuses on providing high quality sport in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

  • Exclusive Syndicate

    At Stowlangtoft Estate we run a well-known syndicate that meets fortnightly on a Friday.


Our estate covers 1000 acres of traditional arable and parkland, including 150 acres of picturesque mature woodland. The terrain is varied, allowing for both traditional partridge shooting and challenging pheasant drives. We offer for sale, a limited number of partridge, pheasant and mixed bag days each season.  Most days are taken by our syndicate, which meets fortnightly on a Friday. Our syndicate is renowned for being inclusive and welcoming to new members.  Outside of our syndicate, Stowlangtoft Estate offers a small number of let days to full teams of guns.

We pride ourselves on offering high-class sport with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. In addition, our bag size varies from 120 to 200 birds, depending on individual requirements and the time of year. Importantly, our bags are often well in excess of the stated target, and we charge no VAT or overage. We choose drives on the day of the shoot to suit the prevailing weather conditions. Each season our Shoot evolves, with existing drives altered and new drives created, to take advantage of changes in the landscape and to improve the sport we offer.

Finally, Stowlangtoft Estate takes its role within country sports and the local community very seriously; we are known for being environmentally and socially responsible.  Furthermore, we are committed to best sporting practice. This commitment enables Stowlangtoft Estate to look forward to a sustainable future in the diverse and beautiful Suffolk landscape.
