We came here after my other half brought me a hawkwalk for a Christmas gift and it was fantastic. Very knowledgable and friendly guides and an activity that's very different and unique. The flying of the hawk was amazing, something new for both of us. Would recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely fantastic. Some really beautiful birds of prey to view (and handle on the hawks on walks experience). Really knowledgable people who clearly love what they do! Will definitely be going again.

A great Birthday present. There is a large display of birds - Hawks, Owls Falcons and others - from around the world. The Hawk Walk is wonderful where we held up food for the birds to take from us in flight. Mark and his team so enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Brilliant place to visit.

What a fabulous place. Mark and his team were so knowledgeable. We were treated as individuals with Mark taking the time explain about the birds, we both learned so much. Fantastic value for the small entry fee. Will go again with other family members when they visit.

This morning, we visited the centre to undertake a Hawk Walk, which my Husband had treated me to for Christmas. Something I have wanted to do for a very long time. I was not disappointed. After initial introductions and a short drive, we met Khan, a truly magnificent Harris Hawk. It was very obvious how much time and dedication Mark... More

We booked to take our 7yr old to meet and learn about the Owls at Battlefield for her Christmas present. It was amazing! Mark spent so much time with us, he spoke to Emily in a way that captured her imagination and we were all completely captivated. We held the most glorious of birds as Mark talked about them, we...

Booked a voucher for hubby for Christmas and with limited time to use it before heading back to Aus the owner Mark made a great effort to ensure we got to use it. On a rainy day we headed out in the land rover to the other side of the estate and in a dry spell got to literally Walk... More

Took my wife as a weekend treat (she is the bird lover) and had a great couple of hours wandering the woods and being treated to some great eagle flying including being able to hold and release the bird. Excellent value and a charming experience.

Well worth having a look at this place if you haven't already been. It's great for a bite to eat in the lovely restaurant , then have a wander around the shop and grounds.
