I recently visited the falconry center at Blakemere. We only visited the birds in the cages so I cannot comment on the flying experience. The aviary was like a Gulag for birds! I found it deeply upsetting as did my daughter. The birds were existing in almost bear enclosures with almost no enrichment. There was a member of staff cleaning... More

Hi, in response to your comments , our aviary collection of birds of prey are maintained to the best possible standard .I dispute with you the statement you made .Our birds breed and produce healthy offspring in the aviaries . I feel you should have spoken to a member of staff ,who would have explained why birds of prey are... More

Absolutely fantastic time. Sorry can't remember the gentleman that led the session but called all the women Jane and made up names for the men. Had the big hat. However, he was knowledgeable and kept us all amused. Well worth the day out. One of the best experiences of my life. Keep up the good work. Would recommend it to... More

We visited here today, part of a Meet The Birds three hour visit. It was a birthday treat for my friend, we travelled a long way, leaving at 7.30 a.m. It was excellent, and highly recommended. I did mention to Lucy that it was my friends birthday, hoping she would wish her a Happy Birthday, but sadly it didn't happen.... More

I visited here on the owl experience half day, bought as a present for my birthday and I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Lucy was a wonderful teacher, her passion for the owls was lovely and she had such great knowledge that she shared with us answering any questions the group had. I got to fly 5 different... More

Bought the full day experience for my Dad and I went too. Had a brilliant day. Both the guides were polite, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Would recommend that you book the walk on the wild side during term time so the birds aren't distracted by noisy children having fun. Well worth the money and got some great pictures of my Dad...

I purchased 4 vouchers in January for a birthday gift, we called to book in May and was informed there was no space to book! (Why sell so many vouchers dated for 6 mths if you can't accommodate them) after informing the manager I would like a refund then as it was not our fault they had over sold he... More

Having undertaken another falconry experience with Cheshire Falconry I cannot thank the team enough for a family friendly, educational hands, on bird of prey experience!! The staff are extremely welcoming and cannot do enough for you. The birds are well cared for and a pleasure to handle. I feel that the falconers genuinely enjoy what they do and it shows.... More
