An opportunity to rent a highly regarded pheasant and partridge shoot on an attractive and well maintained Estate.

Country property,Industrial property to rent in Attleborough

Address:

Quidenham Estate
Attleborough
Norfolk
United Kingdom

Size:

3,600 Acres

Description:

The Shoot extends to some 3,600 acres of which approximately 2,950 acres is let agricultural land and a further 500 acres is ‘in-hand’ woodland. The terrain of the Estate lends itself well to showing sporting birds from a mixture of mature woodland, coniferous plantations and scrub.

During the ownership of the Earls of Albemarle, the Estate was developed to provide a high quality shoot which is referred to in the renowned shooting publication “The Great Shots” by Ruffer. Quidenham Hall was later sold to the Carmelite Nuns, although the shooting rights were retained by the Estate.

For the past 18 years, the shoot has been let, during which time the tenants have used around 11 partridge drives and 27 pheasant drives. There is also the option for some wild duck shooting and flight ponds. Within the estate woodland there are 14 release pens, in working order.

In September 2016, the Shooting Gazette listed Quidenham Shoot as one of the top ten partridge shoots in the UK.

The attached plan shows the boundaries of the Estate. Location for the existing game cover and drives can be made available on request.

The current tenant has identified simulated shooting as an area of growth, with 5 days hosted over the 2016/2017 season, all considered a success.

Woodlands
The woodlands extend to some 500 acres in interspersed plantations of broadleaves and conifers. Some woods are close to roads offering easy access to release pens and drives.

The Quidenham Estate organises and carries out all forestry operations.

Public Rights of Way
There are seven public rights of way across the Estate which includes four footpaths, two restricted byways and a bridleway as marked on the attached plan.

In addition, the Quidenham Mere fishing club have a right of way to enter the Mere.

SSSI Designation & Countryside Stewardship
The area surrounding the Quidenham Mere is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest and therefore shooting is limited in the area. No game can be fed in the designated area. Under the proposed lease, shooting is not permitted within 20 metres of the Mere.

Many of the Agricultural tenants have entered land into environmental stewardship schemes. Buffer strips and field headlands forming part of these schemes must not be used for shoot access.

Game Cover
The provision of game cover has been negotiated between the previous tenant and the agricultural tenants and amount to circa 35 acres of maize/cover crop. There are five main agricultural tenants.

Shoot Lodge at Manor Farm Barns
The current shoot tenant occupies Manor Farm Barns for use as a Shoot Lodge, and this property is available for future tenants. Separate details are available on request.

Sporting Equipment
There are fourteen release pens located within the woodland areas, which are in working and functional order. The assets of the current tenant are available for sale via separate negotiation.

Game Release
The Estate wishes to place a restriction to limit the total number of birds released to 30,000 each year

Rent & Term
Rent on application. The estate is able to offer a long term lease with a break clause at three years.
