We had an excellent time. Fun and informative interactive two hours through woods with Harris Hawk. Great to see beautiful birds at close quarters. We will be visiting again with more of our family. Battlefield Museum, informal friendly catering and farm shop within walking distance were also worth a visit.

Me and my partner Tom had an falconry experience/hawk walk this morning, and it was a brilliant experience. The Hawk walk through the forest was great, having the hawk fly down from a tree and land on your hand was a great moment. The owners were friendly and so knowledgeable about every bird that they have there. It's a great... More

An amazing experience with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Very much enjoyed his tea towel joke (you had to be there!). The Harris Hawk close up and personal is one of those "must do" experiences.

It's thursday and the weather wasn't brilliant ,but the Hawk Walk really brightened our day. Birds, birds of prey and falconry has always been a passion of mine. We booked a Hawk Walk for three people on the Thursday and hoped that the weather forecast was correct. After a confirmation call from the centre we set off. The only comments... More

Felt at ease from the word go. Mark is a people person and adapts his style to suit his audience. Clearly loves his birds which are well kept and stimulated . Enjoyed the Hawk walk immensely and must admit to being a bit of a raptor groupie so have been to a number of centres and experiences and this was... More

We had a brilliant day. Toured the Centre and fed the baby owls, then went on the Hawk Walk which was everything we hoped it would be - enjoyable, different, educational and a good laugh. Finished the day holding the birds up close - what a privilege. A really well run Centre supported by a dedicated, professional and caring team... More

This is a beautiful experience where you come face to face with some of the most beautiful birds of prey from all over the world. The Hawk with walks is a amazing insight to these beautiful creatures. I would highly recommend this to all.

Best hour and a half I have spent in a long time. The Hawk Walk was everything I hoped it would be. Tony knew what he was talking about. Got to learn the meaning of "under the thumb" and much more...... and walking with "Bud" was brilliant. I could become hooked - Mark has built a business that will appeal... More
