“Fantastic - not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Not just a falconry experience, but an opportunity to be welcomed into the lives and home of Barrie and Luce - two of the most lovely, passionate and knowledgeable people you could hope to meet.

You will learn so much about the history, lifestyles and behaviours of these beautiful birds as well as get the opportunity to hold and fly them in a beautiful environment. The atmosphere is relaxed and the experience takes as long as it takes :-) No time limits, no pressure, no question too stupid!

My father-in-law Peter and I had a wonderful time - thanks to you both.

“Excellent hands on experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

A truly wounderful afternoon with a couple who are highly committed to the care and protection of their raptors . A great blend of educational and practical experience set in a stunning setting where you are made to feel very welcome and special.

“Fantastic afternoon! If you get chance - go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I bought the voucher from Groupon for my Son as one of his Christmas presents,as each year seems to get harder and harder to buy him something that he has not already got,and this experience ticked all the boxes for the type of day out that he would enjoy!

The voucher was due to expire in the May, and just as the other reviewers had struggled to secure an afternoon,,it was the same for us,due to the continuing bad weather,but no need to worry as Barry was very reassuring,saying the voucher would be fine till September.

For four attempts the weather was against us,and then on the final evening before our next planned visit, Barry said all was ok!

Our visit (16th July 13) fell on what was surely one of the hottest days ever! Barry and Luce were very warm and welcoming with sun cream,cold or hot drinks readily available.However,as mentioned by a fellow reviewer, the experience is quite long,an amazing 3 to 4 hours that whizz by,so good advice would be to have a very early lunch if possible,or at least have a few snacks ready..

This is an amaaaazing experience,and even if you are not particularly interested in nature and birds, this makes you catch your breath,as you get to feed,fly and handle birds that you could only ever expect to see at a very great distance,so an afternoon spent in the company of cheery people,beautiful birds from UK and beyond,fantastic knowledgeable hosts, at their home in a most dreamy landscape is a sure winner!

So,if you do get the chance - do go! Barry and Luce were the most lovely couple,and their enthusiasm and obvious love for the birds is infectious and humbling, a most memorable day for Julian and myself - thankyou!!, .

We spent 4 hours there and learned so much. Fell in love with the owls and really appreciated the hands on experience. Would highly recommend it!
