What an amazing experience. Mark was so interesting to listen to. The bird called 'Bud' is quite a character and obviously loved it as much as us. Well worth a visit. Followed by coffee and home made cake in the farm shop. Perfect.

It was on a 1 to 1 basis which we went by Land rover into the near by woods, with one of the Harris hawks.Later Mark gave me a tour around the birds inside... More

Our visit was booked as a special birthday present and was certainty a most memorable event. The walk was extremely well organised and everyone had a chance to experience the hawk flying on to their gloved arm and taking food before he swooped away again. All the members of staff are very knowledgeable and obviously love working with these amazing... More

I was bought this activity as a gift. Having always been fascinated by the falconers art and birds of prey it was enlightening walking with and flying the beautiful Harris Hawk.

It's the most incredible feeling having one of the hawks fly towards you and land on your arm. Anyone who is unsure about birds or fear this may be an anxious experience, do not be alarmed. I was surprised how gentle the hawks were and any worries I had beforehand disappeared in an instant! Aswell as breath taking scenery you... More

Excellent value for money - we had a lovely walk for a couple of hours with a hawk, and got to see it hunting. We also got to meet a couple of delightful owls too! Very much recommended, although I suggest you wear a TON of insect repellent as I was savaged by horseflies even though I was wearing long... More
