About
Clay pigeon shooting in Brighton - and a whole lot more! As well as aiming at clays and shooting air rifles, you can also fire off some arrows with our Archery Experiences and even lob a few axes too at this clay shoot ground just in-land from Brighton. We’ve got a whole range of experiences for you to choose from, so you can pick the shoot ‘em up day to suit you. Polowood shooting ground is tucked away amongst grazing farmland and woods at the foot of the lovely South Downs hills. You leave touristy Brighton behind when you hit the narrow country lane running along the bottom of the ridge that takes you to the farm estate base. It’s a pretty stunning entrance, to say the least and sets the scene for the rest of the your clay pigeon shooting day. Indeed, it’s all very countrified round these parts, with a trusty Landy often being used to transport guests around the 10 acre site. A warm welcome from Polowood shoot’s owner Gary and it’s straight into the clay pigeon shooting. This is the mainstay of this shooting ground and there’s an excellent variety of stands and shooting styles.

Top notch (in the rain)
Oct 2021
Took my bestie on his Stag Do here, where we shot air rifles and had an archery session. Had a great time, staff were ace, led by owner Paul, who regaled us with his stories-great guy. The facilities are spot on, just what you need, you get your intro and get on with it, with 2-2 air rifle or the bow and arrow. We endured what must have been some of the worst weather for this - terrible driving rain and wind - but it didn't matter to us, as everyone was cheerful and we got on with it. Well worth the gallons of water in our clothes.

Amazing!

Amazing place! Bought my partner a “Mixed shooting experience” through experience days which included archery, clay pigeon shooting, air rifle shooting and axe throwing. We both had an excellent day at Polowood and will definitely be coming back. The instructors were great, so helpful, welcoming and skilled at what they did. We learnt so much and didn’t feel rushed, despite it being a really busy day. Can’t wait to come back, thank you for such a great day!

Great fun!
We visited yesterday (10th of September) to try archery with a varied skill group. We were met at the carpark by a mini van that took us to the location and it was all very well organised. One of our party recently had a knee operation but was still able to enjoy the session which was a bonus.

We began with some complimentary refreshments and were then taken to the archery range and given a very good tutorial of what to do. I’m so sorry I can’t remember our instructors name, however he’d apparently only been doing the sessions a few weeks and I personally wouldn’t have known as he knew his stuff!

We all had great fun including my friend who has a lot more experience than the rest of the group. We were given progressively trickier ranges and objectives and ended with a competition which was good fun, I’d actually say we all improved our accuracy considerably following the guidance provided in just one hour!

If you want something a bit different to do while on holiday, this is a great option and no more expensive than a round of drinks near the beach.

Thanks guys!

Huge fun! A great afternoon out, highly recommend
What a superb experience! My boyfriend and I spent a couple of hours here: one hour axe throwing then archery for the second, and had an amazing time. We both came away buzzing and trying to figure out when we can go back (and if it's feasible to setup targets for axes in my garden).

I was impressed at the overall setup as i wasn't sure what to expect: it's at a beautiful site out in the middle of the South Downs, and everything seemed really well organised. There's also a little hut serving hot and soft drinks.

The staff were all complete legends and seemed to love what they do, their approach was fun and informal but still great instruction and attention to safety. The instructor takes time to make sure you're safe and help with technique. As a first timer for both the axes and archery,I was really surprised that I was quickly hitting the targets. Great tuition! There were plenty of weapons and targets for everyone, so you could spend the whole time shooting/throwing with no waiting or queuing.

My boyfriend and I were also there at the same time as a stag party, and it was a nice touch that we were offered some targets that were slightly separate from the more boisterous group. We were treated to a cheeky extra mini offroad experience across the fields when we were taken back to the car park from the event site! :D

Overall: fantastic afternoon out, highly recommend it, seems to work just as well for couples or small groups as well as larger stag/hen do's and parties.

First timers that will return
We were first timers to axe throwing and it won’t be our last! Excellent staff, friendly and engaging. A range of sharp things to throw from hatchets, knives and medieval axes to larger axes that take two hands to throw. We would recommend for a couple of larger group.

Amazing Axes!
Aug 2021
We did the axe-throwing session and loved it! Jack was a great instructor, really friendly and helped us improve in a short amount of time. It's so satisfying when you get the axe in the wood, it feels like you're in an episode of Game of Thrones. You get straight to it so there's lots of time to actually do it, and you to try lots of different weapons in just an hour.
The grounds are really well kitted out and very neat. We were offered tea and coffee before we started and there's a toilet.
Would really recommend - and we would definitely do it again, maybe with the shooting as well next time!
