One of the finest high bird shoots in the South of England.

Hexton Manor Estate’s steep and wooded valleys provide the backdrop for the finest driven pheasant and partridge shoot in the Northern Home Counties.

Situated at the foot of the Chiltern Hills, only 40 miles from London, Hexton and shooting have been synonymous for centuries. The steep hillsides were planted for shooting at the beginning of the 20th century.

The land rises 260 feet to nearly 500 feet above sea level over a very short distance which creates extremely challenging high birds and the series of valleys make for an outstanding mixed bird shoot.

Hexton has two separate beats, comprising 11 exceptional drives.

Hexton always surprises people the first time they visit. It is a very well-kept secret and few people in the shooting world know of the deep valleys and wooded hillsides which are more in keeping with Yorkshire or the West Country that Hertfordshire.
