Welcome to Hard Days Knight’s private country estate, the ultimate destination for traditional country sports in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside. Are you ready to take a step back in time and embrace the thrill of black powder clay shooting? Prepare for a stag party experience like no other!
Before the invention of smokeless cartridges, black powder was the go-to propellant for shotguns. And now, we’re bringing back that classic shooting experience. But don’t worry, you won’t need tweed jackets or deerstalker hats to participate. This is a totally unique activity that will transport you to a bygone era.
Imagine yourself standing on our picturesque estate grounds, surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Derbyshire. Feel the weight of a traditional black powder shotgun in your hands as you learn the art of muzzle loading and firing. The air fills with clouds of gun smoke, creating an atmosphere that not only enhances the experience but also makes for incredible photo opportunities.
With 20 shots each, including 15 breech (cartridge) loads and 5 traditional muzzle loads, you’ll have plenty of chances to test your skills. Take aim from four different shooting stands and witness the exhilaration of smashing clays the old-fashioned way. This is clay pigeon shooting at its finest.
For those who crave an extra level of excitement, we have something truly extraordinary. Imagine the thunderous boom of a real, live 1/6th scale cannon from the legendary HMS Victory. Step up to the challenge as each team gets the opportunity to fire the cannon two to three times.
Loaded with grapeshot .577 musket balls (around a dozen per charge), your objective is simple – hit the target closest to the French flagship. Get ready to make history and show off your marksmanship skills.
At Hard Days Knight, we take pride in providing a stag party experience that’s second to none. With our black powder clay shooting and cannon firing activities, you’ll immerse yourself in the rich traditions of country sports while enjoying the breathtaking landscapes of Derbyshire.
It’s time to make your stag party unforgettable. Book your adventure today and get ready for an explosive and exhilarating experience that will exceed all expectations. BOOOOM! Clay pigeon shooting has never been this thrilling.
Visited here last weekend, superb place very spacious, amazing property's on offer lovely views. Activities on offer are vast and there's so much to do we opted for karting and shooting and it didn't disappoint. We spent hours using the full sized pool table and the bedrooms were lovely and clean, if you want an all inclusive weekend away whether it's a stag do or any other gathering then this is ideal and when there's up to 12 people or even less if represents great value for money for what you get, thanks guys. James and the lads.
We went through Greg from HDK to help us organise a stag do for 13 lads in the Peak District. Straight from the off Greg was extremely accommodating and friendly, happy to help with all (a lot) of our questions. The activity day was a real highlight and exceeded my expectations, so a massive thank you Greg and the team for booking that and to all the guys who ran the activities. Brilliant all round.

Amazing service from Greg at HDK. The snow thwarted our hen do plans at the last minute but Greg very diligently found us an alternative activity for no extra charge. He was communicative and available to talk whenever was needed and I couldn’t have asked for a better service! 10/10 would recommend. Emma G.
