Box Tree Farm is ideally situated on the outskirts of Wattisham village which boasts its own moated manor house in it’s centre. The village is a quiet, picturesque rural retreat for those wishing to get away from it all.

We have a large shoot lodge at the farmhouse where guests enjoy shoot day hospitality and can stroll across the farmyard to our gun shop for a few more cartridges.

Shooting at Box Tree Farm

We can offer top quality partridge shooting in September and October and then move on to mixed pheasant and partridge days from November to January. The topography of the land is undulating and we have 35 drives to choose from. The shooting area is 4,500 acres and we have Scott Baker as our game keeper. The shoot has been built up over the last 40 years with many long established shooting guests returning year after year. There are many tall hedges and small valleys which show great birds. Box Tree Farm has the additional bonus of Roe and Muntjac deer and stalking can be arranged in their relevant seasons.


  • Partridge and pheasant shooting – mixed pheasant/partridge days in winter.
  • Choice of 35 drives on 4,500 acres.
  • Roe and Muntjac stalking March to August.
  • Local accommodation available.


You are invited to dine with us in the farmhouse where you will receive a warm, friendly welcome and freshly prepared, home cooked food accompanied by fine wines. Local accommodation is available, such as The Crown in nearby Bildeston and The Swan at Lavenham, with which we are happy to assist you in arranging if required.
