Love the birds there, they are well look after. I love the owl experience. The owls so cute and soft, I love the feel when they landed on your arm. I really enjoy the time there.

Visited here for a three-hour owl and eagle experience and it was great. Very impressive array of birds to admire in decent surroundings and to be able to interact closely with them (holding and flying) was even better. Staff were friendly, helpful and well-informed. Mid-February probably not the best time to visit (cold and muddy) but surely would be even... More

Excellent value for money. Brilliant flying displays and interaction with some of the birds. Would recommend for family days out.

Birds were fantastic and we got to semi handle 2 of them! Everything else was shut up including the tea centre which also meant a shorter visit than had hoped. Friendly staff but felt jipped after paying £10 for entry. Maybe better in spring

Went with our 18th month old son. Was brilliant for us and him to see all the birds and was just in time for the show they have at 11 am and 2pm. Bring cash as there is no ATM on site. Cafe only takes cash.

I was gifted the falconry and field sports (both run a the Bird of Prey Centre). We managed to book them both on the same day and what a fantastic day it was. Thoroughly enjoyed both and would highly recommend either course to anyone. The falconry is hands on and gets you up close with the birds. A real insight... More

Worth a visit even if you're not into birds of prey. Brilliant array of birds that are well cared for, very knowledgable staff. Being able to take part in the feeding and training is just amazing. Just wrap up warm if visiting in colder months as obviously it's mainly an outside attraction. Lovely experience.

Went with friends to try laser clay pigeon shooting. Well run and fun afternoon. Got very competitive as we got better shots.

This was an excellent morning spent handling birds of prey such as eagles and owls and learning all about them. The lady who was handling the birds was very knowledgeable and made it interesting. Very enjoyable experience. Don't forget to take a camera and some suitable clothing as it is an outdoor venue!! I thoroughly recommend it.

Whilst the site is not particularly pretty the birds are amazing. It is great for children as the get to see the birds close up and handle some of them. Well worth a visit
