The Nare is fortunate to be situated close to some of the best shooting in Cornwall. Toby Ashworth, the hotel proprietor, has great contacts, a good local knowledge and considerable experience in organising successful shoots. During the season, The Nare can set up bespoke days for a shooting party to meet the necessary requirements. Not all members of your party need to shoot, as there is plenty for everyone to enjoy at the hotel. If you are interested in shooting at The Nare please contact the Reservations Team who can put together a suitable programme.
