This place is a gem. Run by a wonderful couple. He is passionate about his birds, and his birds love him. There is a wonderful tea room. What better way to warm up after a visit on a chilly Cumbrian summer afternoon than with tea and a scone?! I love the vintage cups and saucers. Tea definitely tastes better out... More

We had an amazing afternoon, the two hour talk and demonstration is worth every penny, the birds are obviously loved and taken care off, I would definitely recommend it and return myself, there is only one demonstration a day that starts at 2pm so don't be late.

Good range of birds on show, lovely tea shop, very friendly cat but the best bit of all was the two hour talk and flying display from owner Paul. He was very funny, knowledgeable and kept all the kids entertained. Well worth the entrance fees.

We came across this place by chance while visiting penrith and as a lover of owls looked forward to seeing the birds , we were in time for the flying display which lasts for 2 hours , the handler is really friendly and extremely knowledgable and has a true love for the birds which shows in his handling of them...

I really enjoyed this but my wife thought it was too much talking. The chap who does the talk is quite funny and the talk is very knowledgeable about the birds. My wife thinks it would have been better to have been shorter with more interaction with the birds, especially for the younger viewers, and I think she has a... More

We have a particular interest in birds of prey so have been to many different displays/centres and this was definitely one of the best. The two hour flying display was brilliant mostly due to the gentleman who gives the talks - he was interesting, informative and funny. The birds were beautiful and the ones in the Centre were impressive (I... More

Lovely eclectic cafe worth a visit serves delicious cakes. Info on birds of prey good. The display lasts a good two hours and although the birds are spectacular , their handler \ trainer is very informative and entertaining. ( only mistake was made about gardeners we're keen gardeners but love wildlife and seeing granchildren enjoying the space hee hee 😀)... More

Couldn't recommend the Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre highly enough - attended on Saturday 01/08/15, we arrived two hours prior to the show starting giving us enough time to have a good look at the birds and for a cup of tea. The birds are in great condition in well kept enclosures. Each bird has a plaque giving a description... More

This attraction offers the chance to see a lot of birds, including falcons and eagles, as well as the opportunity to see some of them in flight. It's best to arrive an hour or so before the scheduled demonstration so you can walk round the extensive display before the flying begins at 2pm. The trainer is a born raconteur, mixing... More

A country tearoom, very quirky with excellent food. The broth was delicious and the scones are freshly baked. The tearoom adjoins the Birds of Prey Centre and there is an interesting collection of antiques outside in the barn
