“We can do it all!”

A recent review of the comprehensive shooting and concierge services that British Country Sports provide for our clients.
The Yank
11 Nov 2017
“BCS organized an entire itinerary for myself and my family – I experienced driven shooting at the Carington Estate close to London that was first rate in every respect.
At BCS’s recommendation and organisation, we stayed at the Corinthia Hotel which was 5 Stars plus.
BCS also arranged a day tour with Heritage Chauffeur Tours which was private, and exemplary in all facets.
I hesitate to say that one firm can ‘do it all’, but have no reservations in saying that about British Country Sports.”
