The Blakemere Craft Center is a very well organised and well appointed venue. It offers a wide selection of interests. There are shops. There is a very well presented pet store. This pet center had a wide selection of animal life. The birds were really and obviously properly cared for. It was also spotlessly clean. The team of people there... More

Spend a wonderful morning on the Meet the Birds experience at Blakemere. Robert (think that was his name) was the bird handler and was so knowledgeable and made the whole thing so interesting and enjoyable. We had a Barn Owl, Kestral, Buzzard, and a Harris Hawk numerous times flying onto our arms, and then even lucky enough to have an... More

Booked as a birthday treat for my daughter. It was a really enjoyable morning. The one and a half hour Raptor Encounter was on special offer at £60 for two and was very good value. We flew a barn owl called Sprite, a harris hawk called Blue and a rather noisy, but cute, juvenile kestrel called Harley. The instructor, Andy,... More

Had an fantastic experience with the amazing staff at Cheshire Falconry. We had the opportunity to watch the falconry display and also take part in the Birds of Prey experience which was thoroughly enjoyed by both our granddaughters and ourselves alike. Can't recommend this highly enough. The staff are highly experienced and knowledgeable and their interactions with the children was... More

Thank you to all at Cheshire Falconry - we had a wonderful morning on the "Meet the Birds" experience. The aviary was spacious and each bird had access to a rich and quality environment within each enclosure. Our falconer was excellent, showing real enthusiasm and boundless knowledge to share. He took the time to learn each of the group member's... More

Really disappointed. Took a disabled gentleman in his wheelchair- he was really looking forward to seeing the birds. The route to the aviary from the disabled parking was itself challenging (harsh speed bumps, not many lowered kerbs etc) but when we got to the aviary we were told that we wouldn't be able to get in with the wheelchair. Did... More

HI, thank you for your comments , although I think the maybe a misunderstanding , our Aviary complex is fully accessible for any wheel chair . the pathway is fully concreted . the access doors at double doors with a very slight sloop or a 1m door with a flat floor . I think you are talking about the new... More

My girlfriend took part in the 'Meet the Birds' 3 hour experience. I was a little unsure about paying the £20 spectator fee to watch but it turned out to be worth it as I got to go with her and the rest of the group everywhere and see the birds up close, although I did not get to hold... More

Cheshire Bushcraft situated next to the Falconry Centre provided a day of entertainment and learning for my husband & 2 sons. An enjoyable day was had by all, Baz the guide for the day was a brilliant, knowledgable and welcoming host. At £99 each it wasn't cheap but is worth it if you find Bushcraft interesting and want to try... More

Good little hour-or-so show with about 5 birds. Very interesting and interactive (they let you put a hawk on your hand...with a glove, of course...!) and gives you an amazing experience being very close to magnificent natural predators. I would reccomend to any bird lovers. Also, the rest of Blakemere Craft Centre is fun too! Me and my family go... More
