"We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to High Harthay Farm, Huntingdon where we did air rifle and bb gun shooting, archery and clay pigeon shooting. My partner and myself visited with our two daughters aged 19 and 12. Midge the instructor was very engaging, knowledgeable, patient and encouraging throughout the experience which was exactly what we needed as this was a first for most of us. The experience lasted about 2.5 hours which was good value for money."
