We had a lovely time with the Hawks and the owls. It was a birthday present for myself but the family enjoyed every minute of it. We all held the meat for the Hawks to fly to our gloved arm, and plenty of time for photos. Wear enclosed shoes and long sleeved top and clothes that are not your best... More

excellent opportunity to get up close with different birds of prey, the walk was taken at a nice relaxed pace with 2 harris Hawks so there were plenty of opportunities for everyone to have a go and staff members were more than willing to help people get action shots of the birds. Afterwards there was a 30min or so talk... More

Went on a joint walk with about 8 other people and the falconer. Had plenty of time and got to handle the bird a lot for a large group. Falconer very knowledgeable and kept everyone informed about the bird, it's habitat and answered all questions.

We were given this as a gift. What a wonderful experience flying the hawks in the open countryside. To see them flying up into the trees then flying onto the gloved hand was amazing. The people who took us out were both experienced and truly cared for the birds. Then we were shown some owls again a fabulous experience. I... More

My 20 yr old daughter and I did a hawk walk. The staff was extremely knowledgable, and helpful from the time we phoned until the moment we left. We "visited" with many other birds afterwards (and a guinea pig and albino ferret). Loads of fun. Thoroughly enjoyed it. The plus was that the food next door was the best food... More

My husband was given a voucher as a birthday present for this Experience, and we went not really knowing what to expect. It was absolutely brilliant! Mark and his family and volunteers were friendly, knowledgeable and obviously passionate about their beautiful birds. The hawk walk was amazing and great fun, and meeting the owls afterwards was magical. A very enjoyable... More

Visited Battlefield on Sunday 21st June. I was given this opportunity thanks to a Christmas gift and I have to say I was not disappointed!! The place is very well run and everyone is very friendly (especially the 3 dogs who accompanied us on our walk!!). Mark was the perfect teacher and we got to fly one of the hawks... More

This has been my second visit and it was just as amazing as the first. I took my parents on the falconry walk for fathers day and they extremely enjoyed it. We then held some of the owls and there was a talk on each one. Mark and the staff are more than accommodating and go out of there way... More
