Happy New Year

Mornacott is experiencing a very damp start to the New Year! With higher than average rainfall we are currently once again battling the elements. Local press has been reported as saying that a quarter of our yearly rainfall fell during November alone. The mild temperatures mean that the grass is still growing and we are witnessing daffodils springing up in flower beds! Fortunately we are well prepared for the downpour, the cattle are in and chewing contentedly on silage made during one of the drier spells and everyone has their fingers crossed that the daffodils will last until March.

We are very pleased that our own Barn Cottage is playing host to visitors from other parts of the country over the holidays and we shall endeavour to make their Mornacott Christmas one to remember. From all the team at Mornacott we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.

The Season Continues...

The shooting season is now well under way and it’s been very pleasing to welcome back so many of our regulars as well as meeting new teams who have taken up the few extra days that we’ve offered this year. 

The shooting season is now well under way and it’s been very pleasing to welcome back so many of our regulars as well as meeting new teams who have taken up the few extra days that we’ve offered this year. Despite some pretty challenging weather, sunny skies and still days, everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves. A new record for shots was established last week on the Aller Hedges drive – 437. We’ll spare the team their blushes and not say anything about ratios!

Start of Season

The start of the shooting season at Mornacott is fast approaching and with only a few weeks left until the first shoot, it’s all hands to the pumps to make sure everything’s ready. 

The start of the shooting season at Mornacott is fast approaching and with only a few weeks left until the first shoot, it’s all hands to the pumps to make sure everything’s ready. All the drives have to be pegged out, all the gun rides have to be cut back and the grass topped. Most importantly all of the birds have to be in top condition and settled in the drives waiting for their chance to take to the air and beat the guns.

“If you’re looking for challenge and variety it’s all that and more” so said Robert Cuthbert writing about the Mornacott Shoot in this month’s issue of the Shooting Gazette.

We were delighted by Robert’s kind comments in the five-page article that he wrote for the Gazette following his visit here last year.

His coverage of one of our shoot days was admirably supported by some excellent photography from Chris Warren Photography making the whole shoot team feel very proud of their achievements.

It also acts as a timely reminder of what our guests will be expecting in the forthcoming season for which preparations are progressing apace.

We are now fully in the swing of holiday season here at Mornacott, our newly finished ‘Barn Cottage’ has been positively received on the holiday let market and we are booked all summer. The feedback has been good, with guests particularly commenting on the stunning views that the cottage enjoys and the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings. The team have risen admirably to the challenge on changeover days and in providing a warm and homely welcome. Now all we need is the co-operation of the English weather!
