The Brigands has been in the Bettws Hall portfolio for 16 years and has firmly established itself as one of the highest pheasant shoots in the UK. It is located in the Dovey Valley on the edge of Snowdonia National Park and it is this natural topography that lends itself to presenting pheasants at the pinnacle of what is deemed reachable with a shotgun. The birds themselves are driven from a mix of traditional wooded valleys as well as the vast, heather cladded Cambrian Mountain sides that rise high amongst this rugged Welsh terrain. The Brigands is home to the legendary drive ‘Tommies’ which has established itself as one of the elite pheasant drives in the UK based on height and landscape alone. It goes without saying that first class hospitality both in the field and at Bryn Cleifion Hall is second to none. The Brigands is home to numerous legendary drives, ‘Welsh Haven’-Standing in the gully between two steep and imposing hillsides with birds flying swiftly overhead has been known to completely astonish newcomers to the estate.

The newest addition to the Bettws Hall offering, Plas Dinam encompasses in excess of 5000 acres of spectacular landscape with a mixture of open moorland, woodland, vertical hillsides and seemingly bottomless valleys. The natural topography couldn’t be more suited to creating tremendous drives for both high and challenging pheasant and partridge, making it very unpredictable for anyone who takes on this magnificent estate. Even in its infancy we believe that Clives and Penryllin drives will soon be on the bucket list for all high bird enthusiasts.

This estate is home to the Dumbell family and sits either side of the English and Welsh border in the ‘Viagra’ valley. An Iron age barrow elevates itself from the Shropshire hills and is the backdrop to some incredibly challenging pheasant and partridge on drives such as ‘Keepers’ and ‘The Oaks’. The shoot lodge stands high upon the barrow and allows panoramic views across both Welsh and English countryside which are sure to take your breath away.
