Well, what a welcome!!! Having visited previously my children and I were really looking forward to it. On ringing the bell in the entrance to get someone's attention, we were greeted with a woman who was sooo rude we very nearly worked straight back out!! She was abrupt, not at all welcoming. The entrance prices were not on display so... More

Hi - thank you for your review - when you arrived at the door there was clearly one senior citizen, two children and one adult. Our adult rate is £10, our senior citizen rate is £8.50, children are £8.50 and concessions are £8.50. As you were a party of four I gave you the best rate possible, that is £30... More

We called here for coffee and cake on a hot day with our dog who was allowed in the tea garden. It was beautiful sitting out amongst the cottage garden flowers and the macaws. Lovely coffee and cake too. We did not visit the Owls as it was far too hot to leave the dog in the car and understandably... More

The centre is found on a lovely road past very pretty villages. It was an excellent day from start to finish. We flew the birds outside in the garden and inside the barn. It was thrilling to stand there with titbits in your hand and watch the birds fly to you. Also it was very informative in regard to the... More

Flying an owl has been on my bucket list for a long time, so when I found out about the Owl and Hawk Centre I couldn't resist making a booking! I booked two nights' B & B, along with a half day bird of prey experience, and I got brilliant value for what I paid. My room had a beautiful... More

My partner and I stayed here with out 2 children a while ago, as my daughter wanted to visit the Exmoor pony centre. After a very long drive, we were greeted with tea and cake which was very welcome indeed! We were shown to two rooms which were joined by a corridor. The rooms were lovely and have retained the...

We spent a wonderful afternoon watching the owls go through their paces. The falconer was very informative and spent time with everyone. The owls were obviously his love as well as his work. What a great place and great value for money would recommend.

I visited with my dad who had received a one hour bird of prey experience gift for 2 people from his staff for his 65th birthday, (lucky for me I was person number 2!) They kindly allowed us to come on a Monday even though they are closed (but it was the only day my dad isn't working). We had... More

A last minute thought to visit here, but well worth the stop off. I visited with my daughter (8) and we are both keen photographers, but unfortunately the weather was such the camera's had to stay in the bag whilst outdoors. Beautiful location (which in the summer would make a full day visit even better value). Arriving at 1.30pm we... More

My husband and I came for a half day bird of prey experience. It was such a brilliant way to be so close to these beautiful birds of prey and fly them in such a beautiful setting. The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable about all of the birds. The birds are obviously very well looked after and it was... More

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
