We have just had a fabulous morning on the hawk walk. We learnt so much from the experience. To feel the hawk coming onto the glove for food and to see and hold the owls was wonderful, plus Mark gave us so much extra information. it was a terrific experience. Highly recommend a visit

This is an amazing place, we did a falconry walk with Mark and his two dogs then spent some time admiring the range of birds on display back at the centre. Mark was a wealth of knowledge and really took the time to give us a wonderful and memorable experience. Thanks again Mark and cheers for the framed picture of... More

We spent an afternoon at the centre and did the Hawk Walk and a Bird Handling session for our our eldest son's 21st birthday. It was a fantastic experience which the whole family thoroughly enjoyed. Mark and the centre staff are all very friendly and welcoming - and are extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of falconry and birds. We were... More

Fabulous day spent here, money well spent! Was super fun and very educational. Complimented with a cup of tea whilst holding the owls. Great to meet some of the other animals (snakes, dogs ferrets etc.) and wonderful friendly staff. Well worth a visit!

Amazing time spent here. We hadn't booked and turned up on the day. We did half hawk walk and owl experience. Wow truly brilliant. Nothing was to much trouble and not rushed at all. Educational. We will definitely be returning and recommending it to our friends. Great as a gift or a special treat for yourself. Amazing value for money... More

We went on the hawk walk and would thoroughly recommend the experience. You walk through a wood with the hawk flying free and coming to your arm for food. Far, far better than the displays one normally sees. Our host was hugely knowledgeable and was able to explain anything which we asked. Whether you live locally, as we do, or... More

We did the "Hawk Walk" and have to say we were really impressed with the guides knowledge of falconry and gave us history of the local area. The walk itself through the woods with the Harris Hawk following at her own pace was amazing to do. Then calling her to hand and releasing her was also magical. Seeing her actually... More
