What an amazing experience. The team organised a display for my Childs birthday party (9) and it was phenomenal. They displayed and flew some beautiful and interesting birds, every child had the chance to fly them. They were so helpful with the more wary members of our group and really helped them to come out of their shells. Biggest difficulty we had was quietening the dads down so the kids could get a word in edgeways. Lots and lots of fun facts and learning along the way.

I brought my son who was turning 11 an experience day with Sky Birds of Prey as he loves falconry and has intentions to work in the industry when he is older. He is very passionate about falconry. We have done falconry experience days for him elsewhere but this was the first year that Sky Birds of Prey were local for us so we thought we would try them out. We are SO very glad that we did!

The whole experience, from enquiring initially, to booking, through to the day itself was first class. We went with no expectations really but Ryan and his team exceeded any expectations we may have unconsciously had from previous experiences! Nothing was too much trouble. Ryan was so friendly and welcoming and knowledgable. He made me and my son feel like an important part of his day. You can tell that this is not just a "job" for Ryan - he was so passionate and enthusiastic about providing us with a good experience and we felt part of the team for the day. We learnt so much and had an amazing time flying the different birds. My son left the experience convinced that he will be back when he is old enough to work for Ryan! Ryan really inspired him and Ryan's fresh attitude and customer service skills and just kindness and friendliness would win over anybody. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend Sky Birds of Prey to anyone considering an experience. You will be very well looked after and get value for money which is money well spent. Ryan and his team get 10/10 from us and we will definitely be coming back to you in some capacity or another! Our huge thanks go to Ryan and the team for making my sons birthday treat so special. The memories will last him a lifetime. Keep doing what you are doing just as you are doing it as you are amazing and stand out from all the rest! Thank you!

Having initially only bought for one person, we were able to add on a second person when we arrived. There was only the two of us on the intro course which was fantastic. We had plenty of time with the two owls and then took the two hawks for a walk. Lots of hands on experience and feeding. Beautiful location. We had a great day!

My husband and I went along for the half day experience and what an experience it was.
From the moment you arrive you are greeted by the lovely Zoe who is extremely knowledgeable and very welcoming.
We had our experience with Ryan whose passion for what he does is infectious. The birds are stunning and it was a real honour to have them fly to you. Walking through the countryside being followed by a beautiful hawk takes the experience to another level.
Thank you Ryan and the team for a unique, educational experience that will make my birthday unforgettable. Don't change anything because we think you've got it pretty spot on.

We were very privileged to have the first experience session after lock down. Zoe made us really welcome, and her knowledge and enthusiasm was infectious. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the facilities before the flying experience. Zoe obvioulsy has a passion and understanding of all the birds and this showed when it came to actually flying the owls. I came away knowing more than I did and this is all thanks to Zoe. Would highly recommend to anyone with a love of birds of prey. Cannot wait to visit again as their plans for the future sound absolutely fantastic. Thanks again for a great afternoon.

This was a birthday present from my daughter, postponed from 2020. We were the only guests there, which was a bonus. We had a wonderful time with the beautiful owls and Reese our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable; I know much more about owls now! I would love to do something similar sometime wih different birds of prey.

I highly recommend the experience!

We have literally just got back from our day at Sky Birds of Prey. We are a family of four, this was my husband and son's second visit, they went 5 or 6 years ago when it was still very much in it's infancy, and had a thoroughly enjoyable day. This time my daughter and I joined them and we chose the "Rifles and Raptors" experience. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the experience. The charm of this place is it's total lack of commercialism. What you get is a wonderful, personal experience. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and are obviously passionate about the birds and love their jobs. They go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy yourselves. We will definitely be returning.

I bought this experience for my husband's birthday before lockdown. He finally got to go on his experience last week and said it was the best birthday pressie ever!. He was lucky enough to be the only one on the experience, he was delighted when one of the staff called him over to a barn where baby owls were hopping around and trying to fly. He said from start to finish it was a fantastic day, such kind knowledgeable staff and would highly recommend.
