"So often we hear somewhere described as a "family shoot" but its either too formal, too commercial or too disorganised to qualify for the accolade" says Jonathan Young, until recently Editor of The Field.
"A proper family shoot provides excellent sport and never forgets that the day is meant to be enjojable for everyone - and when it comes to that combination of challenging
shooting and fun, Tidgrove has it by the bucketload.
Tidgrove shows birds to encourage the young and inexperienced and others that will have you shaking your cartidges to check they actually contain shot.
The beaters and pickers up are always friendly, adding to the family flavour, and the countryside is varied and beautiful.
I've never left without regretting that second slice of delicious cake at tea and that wonderful
feeling of a happy day spent with charming people."
