To do this week
The Wasing estate in Berkshire has launched its own version of the Macnab Challenge, offering corporate guests the chance to bag something feathered, furred and finned all in the same day. The Wasing Macnab Experience will give guests a day of wild-trout fishing, working dog trials and ferret racing, along with overnight accommodation and meals. The price is £426 per person (including VAT) and bespoke packages are also available.
