Located on the Cwm Rhaiader (meaning “valley of the waterfall”) Estate near the village of Machnylleth, in mid Wales, the Dyfi Falls shoot is a real gem. The shoot was a brand-new addition to our portfolio for the 2020/21 season and had never previously been shot over. We had an extremely successful first season here and we are very excited for the seasons to come. Bringing you deep into the Welsh countryside, the beautiful long driveway on to the estate really sets the scene for your shoot day. As you pull up to our brand-new shoot lodge you will be able to see the stunning waterfall which sits at the head of one of the valleys. The waterfall also forms the centrepiece for a very exciting drive!
The shoot offers mixed days of Pheasants and Partridges, shown from a variety of covers including woodland, bracken covered banks and gamecovers. The steep sided valleys allow us to present high-flying birds flying straight back to their home at the centre of the estate. However, the nature of the long sweeping valleys means there are swirling winds that will mean the lines of the birds can be quite deceiving. They certainly keep our guests on their toes!
Our days at Dyfi Falls begin by meeting at the shoot lodge, which is situated in the heart of the shoot, at 9:15am. Here you will be greeted by your host and introduced to the shoot, whilst enjoying a tea or coffee, before moving off to the first drive by 10am. During the day you will be treated to a delicious elevenses and a home cooked lunch all prepared by our chef on site.
We welcome teams from around the country, and indeed overseas, and can advise on or arrange local accommodation as required. We are also happy to arrange loaders, instructors, cartridges, gun hire and transport – please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your requirements.
