The Brigands Estate Shoot, Bettws Hall

The Brigands Estate, in the Snowdonia National Park Wales,  is part of the Bettws Hall portfolio of of game shooting estates.  It is one of the highest and most sought after driven pheasant shooting estates in the UK.  Here are some of the comments online:

As you arrive at the Brigands, it soon becomes apparent that the pheasants are going to be high.  The hillsides are better described as mountains and frequently the birds are flushed from bracken, gorse or a cover crop on top of them.  The Brigands are certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Testimonial:  “Brigands should be a permanent fixture on any shoot calendar. It offers everything from the awesome surroundings to the spectacular drives – it is the stuff of legends!” David Noon

I was delighted recently to have been invited to take along some art to display at Bettws Hall and it was decided that my collection of paintings would be exhibited together at Bryn Cleifion on the Brigands Estate.  How wonderful!

My drive from Somerset to Bettws Hall was rewarded with a lovely warm  reception from Fleur who quickly made me feel very welcome.   I really do hope that my paintings can be enjoyed by visitors to Bryn Cleifion whilst they attend one of the most amazing shoots in such a spectacular location.  This is so exciting,  hopefully soon I will be able to visit again to deliver more paintings and maybe join a shoot for inspiration.
