Charles Goucher


I have been running the Clovelly Shoot now for over 10 years and have a profound and innate love of all things rural.   I have been shooting since I was 8 years old.   I come from a large family background and have also been rearing pheasants for almost we produce all our own stock.

I have been working with Charles since I left Universty.  I was born locally and shooting and keepering is my passion together with  an extensive rearing knowledge  and I can truly say that my main goal is to produce excellence on each and every day.

Will be joining us very shortly.....




I have been been privileged to run The Clovelly Shoot now for over 8 years.   I have  a deep love of the countryside believe my farming background and rearing experience stand me in exceptionally good stead to produce days that the discerning gun now has come to expect.  Of course no good shoot runs without a good team behind them, our keepers Jim  are  highly dedicated individuals and our beating team who often have to scale valleys and rivers in their quest, the pickers up led  Lauren, and of course the patient wives and partners in our lives !


At Clovelly we offer  Pheasant Shooting on Driven Days for Private and Corporate Clients alike of between 200 and 400 bird days together with Single Guns on a few selected days during the season. 


The Clovelly Shoot has gained the reputation of offering some of the most exciting driven pheasant shooting in the UK.   Set  over 2,000 acres of the privately owned Clovelly Estate, we place a strong emphasis on hospitality linked with professionalism at all times.


Rearing our own birds gives us the confidence in the health and quality which is reflected in the shooting we offer.  Deep wooded valleys rise in some places to over 400 feet above the guns with some of our drives bordering the cliff edge and seas.  We operate 2 main beats, the much reputed 'Hobby Beat' which offers exhilarating shooting and some of the most challenging birds that many guns will have encountered and the 'Mouth Mill Beat' bordering the sea edge in parts and offering quality and skilful shooting for all and is gaining a great reputation.


Clovelly is based on The North Devon Coastline between Barnstaple and Bideford with good access back to the M5 and beyond.  The above photo is taken from the Ancient Harbour Wall directly in front of The Red Lion Hotel.   It is a truly magical place and guns frequently comment that the settting and locality is unrivalled.


A visit to Clovelly is most definitely an experience and one that previous teams and their guest have thoroughly enjoyed.  The village is a truly unique place and not to be missed...  The scenery is truly stunning and makes a beautiful place to visit in its own right.


We have just a few spaces for single guns and a full days left now for the 2017/2018 and are taking bookings for 2018/2019 season now.
