We visited here a couple of years ago and had a great time. We were there for at least a couple of hours and really enjoyed the show. We got to interact with an owl or two which was great fun...took some good photos as well. If you are in the area it's worth a visit.

My husband & I took part in a half day experience and really enjoyed it, flying the hawks, owls, etc., learning how to hold them and watching them fly. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and devoted to their work and all the birds were obviously well cared for. An excellent day.

We were so blessed to get to spend the morning with some of the most majestic creatures I have ever seen. We were able to fly a falcon, and eagle, an owl, and an owl... More

I came here with my parents and my 9 year old cousin and we were very disappointed. More than half the time spent here was playing on the swings. Some birds did what they wanted in the show and I got scared because when the bird was walking to me I thought we were going to have a scrap. We... More

Loved our day here. Got there before the display so walked around the enclosures first . The display was excellent really close to the audience and a great informative narrative from Kerry.We had our lunch on the many picnic benches available but there is a small coffee shop inside. After the display they brought some birds round for people to... More

My husband and I had this half day experience bought as a Xmas Gift, what a fantastic idea. It was a great way to learn more about birds or prey, get to handle them and walk with hawks flying alongside. The weather was glorious, which was a bonus, the location is stunning, with such a friendly, family style welcome, even... More
