The Gentleman

How many times have you arrived at Sunday evening and realised that you’ve wasted the entire weekend cooped up on the sofa, having achieved absolutely nothing – and vowed that you won’t do it again? And how many times have you repeatedly found yourself in the same situation the weekend after that, and the weekend after that? Well, with the help of Roxtons we’re here to help you make a change.

The finest countryside activities within a stone’s throw of the capital

Make a change, gentlemen, because a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the City, just beyond the M25 and up the M4 corridor to Wiltshire and Gloucestershire, you’ll come across some of the finest pheasant and partridge shooting in the UK. The beauty of the proximity of the offering is the combination of ease of access with a superlative shooting experience at some of England’s finest and most renowned sporting estates. With all locations the package includes first class accommodation and hospitality for you and all your guests. Added to this, if not all your guests are as keen on shooting as you, then there is a wealth of other activities and destinations to take their fancy ranging from some of the finest spas, attractions, country houses to visit and different adventures guaranteed to delight and spoil.

So, what sets Roxtons apart from its competitors? They are the original and most widely respected field sports agent in Europe, and offer truly worldwide sporting excellence, ranging from the finest salmon fishing in Russia or flats fly fishing in the Seychelles to exclusive shooting opportunities in the UK Europe and South America.
