I bought a voucher for my husband for here off deal monster. It was extremely good value for money. The talk was informative but lighthearted which kept you interested. The birds were spectacular and kept in very good condition. Cream tea was served as part of the deal afterwards and was very nice. All in all extremely good value for... More

This was an added bonus, after all, a Bird of Prey Centre is just a Bird of Prey Centre,isn,t it? No, this one was different with a small family run cafe serving very nice, freshly prepared, food, and outbuildings with antiques for sale. The Birds are kept in a large area with some substantial cages for the larger birds as... More

It was a day that predicted rain when we went and with the thought of a coffee shop to hole up in if necessary we set off. The first thing to mention is the barn with the antiques! If we had a van i would be very poor and the van very full! The coffee shop is quite frankly wonderful.... More

We were on holiday in the area and had a leaflet for this place in our accommodation. My husband and I love birds and decided to go here one afternoon. It is very small, in fact the birdcage area looks more like a private collection, but not in a bad way! We had cake (homemade and very nice) and coffee... More

Me and my family visited not long ago, traveling almost 2 hours just to see the birds. When we arrived the place looked appalling. First of all the tea rooms looked like it was rotting, compleatly un-hygienic and was a dirty mess. There were flies and cobwebs everywhere which I wouldn't tolerate in my own kitchen, never mind public tearooms.... More

We visited LBPC without really knowing what to expect .Set in beautiful picturesque surroundings providing the perfect backdrop to the secluded nature of the site , there is something of a feeling of a secret garden that you may not come across again . The café is wonderfully rustic and charming , refreshingly different from the homogenised types we are... More

On a vist here we arrived and on the car park was two women talking. We entered the cafe area and stood looking for any staff so we could enquire how we entered the bird of prey area.After about 5 minutes some people in the cafe, (who were waiting to order food), said to us that 'there was somebody here...

Although I like birds, I am not actually a bird fanatic but when I walked into the grounds where the birds were kept, I thought they were all amazing. The grounds were surrounded by beautiful views. If you love birds, this is like bird heaven! The gentleman (Paul) that does the talk kept it very interesting. He loved all the... More

We visited this excellent attraction in June of this year. I can thoroughly recommend the Lakeland Bird of prey Centre to anyone, the falconer was very knowledgeable & obviously loved & cherished his feathered friends a great deal, his talk was very informative & interesting, well done. We visited the quaint tearoom & enjoyed some delicious light refreshments. Plenty of... More
