The family bought Corsehope in 1970 as it had the potential to become a superb shoot as well as encompassing a Grouse Moor.

As a dedicated perfectionist, Matthew’s Father set about restoring the Grouse and built the five ponds that are a stunning feature in the landscape today with its flock of Geese that arrive each spring to grace the landscape.  In the fullness of time Matthew took over the running of the farm which not only included a suckler beef herd and sheep, but he inherited his Father’s love of shooting.  Matthew has continued to expand the shooting enterprise and has since developed the Simulated Game days as another exciting venture.

Matthew’s wife Alex grew up on a remote farm in Kenya and Corsehope with its many similarities to the Kenyan highlands has been the perfect home.  Initially Alex started a pottery which then gave way to bringing up a family & her love of painting in watercolours.


The shooting enterprise has now become her main priority as the hospitality and catering has provided the opportunity to meet so many interesting people.

Alex & Matthew work as a team and the attention to detail ensures the smooth running of the day to give you the best experience possible from the moment you arrive.

“Having participated in a few Simulated days here, I highly recommend a day. Realistic grouse thrown over butts and screens. Complete with sound effects. Entertaining rabbits, speedy partridges and high flying pheasants. Delicious elevenses and scrumptious lunch. Great day out!"
