“Great falconry in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Four of us visited on a windy November day and all had a great time. We saw flying displays with falcons, an eagle, vultures, kites, and a snowy owl. The falconers are friendly and informative so we all knew much more about birds of prey when we left than when we arrived. We watched 3 separate sessions of up to an hour each, arriving at 10.30am and not leaving until 4pm. They also do private sessions where you can learn even more about training, handling and flying the birds. We watched a family learning to handle a harris hawk and it looks like a superb experience.
We've been to other more expensive falconry centres and this is right up there with the best! It's fantastic value for money and a great day out for adults and children.

“Super”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Amazing array of birds handled by great people who are very passionate about them. We watched 2 shows, both entirely different and were very impressed. Definitely worth stopping in if you are in the area.

Wow...we loved this place, even visited twice in one day, as we were told that Chris would be flying the Vultures later..
So informative, birds were lovely, well looked after.

Thank you so very much

“Beyond brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

My lovely husband got me an Owl experience at the centre for my birthday and I will never be able to thank him enough. It was brilliant. The staff were so friendly and knowledgable and holding the birds was just amazing. It started raining during the evening but that didn't stop them, they carried on showing us the owls and carried on with the flight display which was great. It was tricky to see all the owls at the beginning of the night as there were quite a few of us to huddle around each aviary but still we saw plenty and to be honest just listening to the facts and stories about the owls was fascinating. A great experience all round!
