Historic Rose Hill Farm has been owned by the Ashby/Covington family since the 1800’s. Having always enjoyed hunting and the natural outdoors we now offer our 210 acres of prime habitat where upland preserve bird shooting is as natural as you will find anywhere.
Rose Hill Game Bird Reserve offers a unique sporting experience in Virginia’s Piedmont. Guided and unguided hunts, tower shoots, and sporting clays are offered seasonally.The property and surrounding lands of Culpeper County are steeped in history going back to colonial times. Rose Hill lies along the old Pennsylvania / Carolina Road dating to before the Revolutionary War. During the Civil War, Culpeper County was in the middle of much of the conflict where Union and Confederate marched and fought. Right in the heart of this action, Rose Hill Farm was even called home by some Union soldiers during this time. At nearby Brandy Station on June 9, 1863 was the largest cavalry battle ever fought in North America.
In 1863-64 Rose Hill and the Ashby Family experienced occupation when it was made the Headquarters for Union General Hugh Judson Kilpatrick’s 3rd Division Cavalry. Five Regiments pitched tents and wintered on this property.
Today you can enjoy prime upland bird shooting at Rose Hill Farm just an hour from Washington D.C. in the shadow of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. The property boasts an abundance of mature old hedgerows, pine stands and natural grassland, which provides for a unique and varied hunting experience.
