About Us

Callaly Clay shoot is hosted by Richard and David Bateson. Richard has over 40 years of experience in live game shooting and has tailored Callaly Clays to provide his favourite drives put into one day.

We hope we have been able to put together a fun, social and challenging day for all to enjoy. Both Richard and David are CPSA Gun Safety Officers and thoroughly enjoy hosting clay days for those who love the sport.

"When I first set up the clay shoot, I aimed to provide the most authentic clay pigeon shoot as I could. We are very privileged to be blessed with some stunning views at Callaly and we have tried to make each drive as close to the real thing as possible, with a grouse drive on a moor, high pheasants coming out of a wood and partridge sweeping over wind bushes. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!"

- Richard Bateson, Callaly Clays Founder

Our Grounds

Callaly Estate offers a picturesque setting in the Northumbrian countryside, conveniently located near Whittingham and just off the A697. The estate provides breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, which adds to the authenticity of the drives designed to mimic a live bird shoot.

We have two lodges, The Lodge where we will meet to have tea and coffee to start and the White House, where one can have lunch overlooking the grounds.
