Description

Sir Edward Dashwood Bt., West Wycombe Park Office, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP14 3AJ

www.westwycombeestate.co.uk

A morning/evening Muntjac Stalk with 1 Rifle on the West Wycombe Estate, Buckinghamshire (30 miles from London). It will be accompanied by an Estate Keeper (a tip is suggested) and can get the use of an Estate Rifle if buyer does not have their own. Buyer gets to keep carcass.

West Wycombe Estate extends to some 5,000 acres and the shoot is managed by Sir Edward Dashwood, Bt, an extremely keen shot himself. Sir Edward Dashwood 12th Bt currently resides at West Wycombe Park with his wife and family. West Wycombe Estate is consistently referred to as one of the finest shoots in the Country. Today the shoot still ranks amongst the best, and is regularly in the Field’s list of Top Shoots. Certainly it is probably the closest really good shoot to London. The house today is frequently featured in screen adaptations of literary classics such as Cranford and Little Dorrit and more recently in the television series, Downton Abbey. Other films include W.E., The Importance of being Earnest, I Capture the Castle, The Lost Prince and He Knew He was Right.

There is a nice pub in West Wycomne Villiage, if accommodation required.

To be taken on dates to be mutually agreed in the coming season with Sir Edward Dashwood.
