I booked a hawk walk for myself and father, it lived up to all the reviews. Mark is a wealth of knowledge and extremely accommodating. The walk itself is fantastic with the bird flying to and from your glove on numerous occasions. Set in beautiful woodland, the walk is great just by itself. It does not feel like a big... More

One arrival to... More

Walking with Hawks - This was a birthday present from my partner. This is a wonderful experience, we were taken by landrover into a forest on the estate, we then did a circular walk with the falconer, his dogs and a magnificent Harris Hawk. The Hawk was released and when a tasty morsel was held out (with a heavily gloved... More

The Harris Hawk, Bud, swooped in and landed on our gloves every time. Such a thrill. All was very calm and exciting at the same time. Mark answers all questions and with great enthusiasm. I would love to go again. Judith W.

Having bought several vouchers for friends and families in the hope that they would take me along as well, it finally happened and I have been twice now. The Hawk walk is a truly memorable experience. Being in such close proximity with these birds of prey, as the hawk flies to your arm, gives you a real adrenalin rush. Mark... More

Loved the hawk walk experience today. I went out this morning with Mark and had a great time. Bud the falcon is an amazing bird and to have him land on your arm and watch him swooping in is something I won't forget. Mark is a very knowledgable man who is great to talk too. The hour flew by which... More

Recommended. Not cheap but well worth it. Something very different that i will remember for a long time to come. Mark was extremely knowledgeable and easy to get on with. He answered all the questions that were put to him. He organised a booking for me at very short notice. Having the Hawk fly to your arm was an amazing... More

We had an amazing hawk walk and owl experience. Mark and his wife were fantastic with our 5 children. We all learnt so much and had such a great time. The hawks, owls, falcons, vultures and ferrets were so content and well looked after. Well worth a visit, we will be going back! X

We took our two grandchildren and they enjoyed the visit very much. Our guide explained the various birds to our grandchildren in language that they understood
