The shoot organisers have their own dogs for picking up but if any gun wishes to bring a dog he or she is welcome to do so. We do reserve the right however to exclude it from the shoot if we consider it is disturbing the birds. Unfortunately we cannot offer kennel facilities but dogs are welcome in the hotel itself excluding the restaurant.
Drying Room and Gun Storage
We have an efficient drying room and a gun cabinet for storing your guns.
These are of course a matter of personal choice but for snipe we recommend 7 or 8 shot. If you run short there is a well-stocked shop - Tamar Field & Stream - opposite the hotel. The shop has a resident gunsmith and sells a comprehensive range of shotgun cartridges and rifle ammunition.
If you are not already a member of the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), then we must insist that you take out your own insurance cover for third-party indemnity to £1,000,000. Because it is so important, we ask for your written assurance on this before you join the shoot. We also ask that you ensure your personal insurance covers your guns while away from home, as we do not hold ourselves responsible for loss or damage to them while you are with us. We do not permit automatic guns to be used.
We require a deposit of 50% with the reservation and the balance to be paid two weeks before arrival.
When bringing shotguns and rifles into the UK a permit is required by the police. If shooting from The Arundell Arms, this can be organised through us.
