This was by far our favorite part of our visit to Bath. Jay didn't bat an eye at us showing up late (It is a little hard to find without directions.) and proceeded to give us an unforgettable experience. After a walk through the countryside to a field surrounded by woods you get the unbelievable experience of a raptor landing... More

We were there for the first 'flight' of the day, saw two owls, a falcon, and an African eagle, as well as the 'non-flying' birds in the aviary. Really interesting and the staff seem to be really engaged with both the birds and the visitors.

Thank you Mogwai for letting us take you out for a fly. Mogwai the Harris Hawk is a lovely bird and was willing to fly for us without any trouble at all despite our inexperience. Jake took us out for the hawk walk and was a very knowledgeable and pleasant, he made us feel very relaxed and ensured we had... More

My wife took me here for my birthday as I'm a bit of a bird geek, and I absolutely loved it! Jay was really friendly and knowledgeable. We were worried we may not get to do it as it was slightly drizzly and (unbeknownst to me) hawks can't fly in the rain! But the weather held off and we went... More

we arranged a booking for this event on the 11th March for 28th June at 2.00 pm. we were asked to take this date rather than our preferred date of the 29th June as he was unable to do this for family reasons this was all confirmed and booked. We received an email on the 10th March cancelling this as... More

Unfortunately, sometimes travel arrangements and flight schedules get changed, something beyond my control. I apologise that these changes have ultimately spoiled you families entertainment. I'm also sorry that giving you seven weeks notice and the offer of an alternative time (something you failed to mention in your comments) was not good enough for you. However, I make no apology that... More

This is a fantastic experience not to be missed! Jay, who runs West of England Falconry gives excellent instruction on handling the bird, and then you get to feed and handle the bird yourself. The whole experience was relaxed, informative and so much fun. I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially those looking for something different. Denise S

This is an experience that I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience falconry. There were two key elements that really stood out for my partner and I. The first is that you get to handle the Hawk a lot in a lovely natural environment. This is not the type of experience day where you get loads of instruction... More

As a special treat from our boss we got to try a bit of falconry. Initially I was dubious as I thought it would be mostly demonstrations of birds of prey with personal participation for only one of the group if we were lucky. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was not the case as we had a... More

Hi Jacky Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm glad you had a good time. It's always a pleasure for me too to see others enjoying our birds. I don't think I've ever been called a gentleman before. Thanks again Jay More

Booked this for my mums birthday and was no doubt the best thing we done the whole time we were in bath. So glad I booked this everything about the experience was perfect, the weather, the host and of course not forget the bird himself. There is nothing better than meeting someone that loves and cares for animals as much... More
