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

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

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...
