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

This place is a bit hidden out of the way but worth the effort to find. We arrived at 1pm which gave us enough time to walk around and look at the birds before the main event. At 2pm everyone gathers in the display field. These things normally consist of staff talking at you and birds being quickly shown off... More

Different day out with amateur feel. Friendly cafe and plenty to see if like birds. Very small and birds can be unpredictable, but falconer well prepared

The first thing about the attraction is the quaint and cosy tea room that serves beautiful cakes, as well as tea and coffee. When you enter the aviary there isn't a large amount of birds to look at, although the flight demonstration held in a separate field was excellent. The demonstration lasted around 2 hours and included a walk, talk... More

The birds fly at 2pm but have lunch in their lovely little cafe first! Afternoon tea was excellent too.

Even though it was a wet afternoon we had a lovely afternoon. The birds were fabulous and the handler was knowledgeable and witty. The tea room was lovely and much needed as we were wet and frozen.

Relaxed, loving relationship between birds and owner. Lots of information and funny stories. Don't be surprised at visitation from owners cat during flying display - didn't know whether to watch birds or cat! Lovely quaint tea rooms with gorgeous cakes and scones. Was very busy so a little patience helps. Some areas could do with a bit of a touch... More

Probably the best value for money day out that we have done during our holiday in the Lake District within the ancient grounds of the outstanding Lowther Castle. The flying display is excellent and quite intimate with the birds of prey even coming amongst the crowd. The handler is an expert and very entertaining. The birds of prey are so... More
