We recently held a corporate event at Hayton Castle Farm of mixed abilities; what a brilliant setting. The event was so well run; it was very organised, but relaxed and such good fun.
I would definitely recommend it; the staff are all so good, they are helpful and so encouraging, giving clear instructions and soon had us all shooting very well, they made it so easy and very enjoyable!
The facilities are brilliant and a thoroughly good time was had by all!

We recently organised a Clay Pigeon Shoot for a party of eight at Hayton Castle Clay Shoot. It was a complete success and the guidance provided by Lee was expert enough to ensure that every one hit a fair proportion of clays. I intend to have a private vent of my own, I enjoyed it that much. Highly Recommended!

I went recently as part of a stag do, Lee and his team were welcoming and friendly and catered for the group of 18 well, providing hot food and drink throughout. Did 3 disciplines during the day (Shotgun, rifle and archery) with good coaching and advice given in all three. The whole group enjoyed the day and would thoroughly recommend it

Brilliant facilities and a great set-up. Lee was fantastic and helped all of our party out throughout the day, giving great advice and tips. With a party of complete novices, Lee ensured we were all comfortable and coached us all individually throughout the session. Will definitely be returning in the near future!! The banana-chocolate cake was also a highlight of the day!

We booked our 16 year old son in for 1 to 1 clay shooting with Lee. He absolutely loved it, Lee was fantastic and very quickly got my boy blasting the clays out of the sky. Nice facilities too, so we've already booked him in for another session. Thanks for everything.

I went to Hayton Castle Clay Shoot with my Brother and Dad for my Dad's 50th Birthday. We had an amazing time. The facilities they have up there are just amazing. Lee was very welcoming and really made you feel at ease with the equipment. I think my Dad and Brother have the Clay Shoot bug and are already looking forward to going back. I cannot recommend this enough. Totally awesome. Great value for money. Lee - Thanks for an awesome experience.
Great site and fantastic facilities. The team were really helpful and made everyone feel welcome. A real mix of ability within our team, but Lee managed to offer tips and advice for everyone. A thoroughly enjoyable day and one we hope to repeat again very soon.
Lee Noble, Retford
All the lads and lasses from Sheffield would like to say thank you for a great days shooting. Friendly staff...Very clean...Great targets...No breakdowns...No fuss...and very fairly priced. We will be making ourselves regulars at this fantastic venue.
Neil Davies and the team, Sheffield
Nice place run by passionate, well informed Yorkshirefolk. The food spread was warm tea hut was welcomed. The chap taking the shooting really knows his stuff and he pays attention to how you are shooting and dispenses much needed (in my case) advice and pointers.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to have concurrent shooting bays operating at the same time, as for our party of 15 there was a fair bit of waiting around time. Would happily return!
(We now offer archery and air rifle shooting for larger groups to reduce waiting time).

15 of us visited Hayton Castle Clay Shoot yesterday and we all left feeling as if we had had the most amazing two to three hours surrounded by great scenery and lovely hosts.
Whilst I was a little nervous at first, the owner Lee, was fantastic in tailoring his help to people's experience levels and was able to give quick, clear and succulent tips after each shot. This resulted in me shooting 24 out of 30 clays - something I thought would have been impossible before the event - given the fact I'd missed every clay on my first and only other time trying clay bird shooting years earlier at a different venue.
This activity was great for us as a group of friends and would just be as well suited for corporate events. Special thanks must go to Lee - the owner - who made our day so enjoyable and my only regret is that we live in London otherwise we'd definitely be up again in no time! Thanks.
Lee,Thank you very much for a fantastic couple of hours shooting on Friday.
Everyone really enjoyed the session and that was mainly down to the amount of time and attention you gave to everyone! Please thank your mum as well for all the time she gave to our visit - everyone commented on how good the refreshments were!

On behalf of the members of the Normanton on Trent Gun Club may I thank you, Julie and Lee for making our visit to your shooting ground such an enjoyable day. Please thank Lee for helping our members with ironing out some of their shooting problems. We look forward to visiting you again sometime in the future.

Thank you for running the clay shoot for our charity. Your hard work is very much appreciated and look forward to another event next year.

Thank you ever so much for a fantastic mornings shooting. All the staff really enjoyed it and are already pushing me in to organising another day with yourself. A great team bonding exercise for sure.
