This was a disappointing experience. On arrival we were told that we couldn't be shown to our room, because the lady "had to attend the horses." I felt it implied that "townies" like us didn't understand the imperative for looking after the horses - even though we'd paid in advance for accommodation. What a welcome. Wandering in via the front... More

Amazing! Brilliant! Awesome!! This is one of the best days out we've ever experienced. We enjoyed it from beginning to end. Getting up close to these amazing birds was a phenomenal experience. The falconer Damian was interesting and knowledgeable. His passion for what he does just shone through!! The food was excellent. The owners friendly and welcoming. Thank you to... More

We visited as a family and all had a great time. They shows are very intimate with different birds for each show being brought round for every one to see. The bird cages were big and clean and it was obvious that all of the birds were well looked after and exercised regularly. There other animals were friendly and accessible.... More

Just back from our visit and have to review as we had such a great packed day. In a beautiful setting near both Allerford and Bossington villages which are both very pretty, there are a number of national trust owned cottages I think. I booked for a family taster day for me, my husband and son. We brought a friend... More

We had really high hopes for the Exmoor Hawk and Owl Centre- how wrong could we be! We booked our nights stay through Expedia. We needed a 'dog friendly' B and B for a one night stop over on our way to South Wales. We were abruptly greeted and shown to our room, of which there we no external locks.... More

Never nice to read such comments and very sorry your experience was not as you would have liked. We offer all our guests coming to our b&b home a welcome cup of tea and cake, there is no rush here as we like our visitors to just relax and enjoy the place. There are house rules for dogs on the...

We booked to stay here as my daughter is fascinated with owls. The setting is beautiful and the owl and hawk displays were amazing. My 10 year old daughter had a one hour owl experience which was fabulous. The B&B was lovely - we had two rooms booked and unfortunately the shower was lacking. the water pressure was non existent...

I had lunch here on my way back to Bossington from Selworthy. The gardens are a delight - lots of hidden corners and shade. I ordered a ham sandwich, but was pleasantly surprised to receive the most wonderful ham (real ham!) on fresh and tasty bread. It was served with a garnish, which was a little different. The staff were... More

We chose this B&B because we wanted to see the birds and were not disappointed. The old farmhouse itself is quaint and interesting...and yet very comfortable. The afternoon tea was very nice upon arrival, and the breakfast was very good. The main interest, however, is the birds...it is good to see a staff so devoted to the care of these... More

Sometimes a hurried last minute booking can be a disaster. Sometimes, like this one, it can throw up a hidden gem. OK, maybe it was only hidden to me, but please do not let it be hidden to you. sadly, I had to work and could not spend as much time as I wanted soaking up the almost tangible calm.... More

We found the paths which consisted of rough uneven stones very hard going. It was difficult to push the pushchair, as was the party in front of us trying to push a wheelchair, my elderly mother who walks with a stick found it hard to balance over the uneven surface. The owls themselves were lovely but not enough of them... More
