Visited on a Saturday paid over £30 for four adults to walk around cages where the birds all looked miserable in their tatty over grown cages. Took us 15 minutes to do the whole thing and that was taking our time to take some pictures and read about each bird.Complained about the waste of money for this attraction and were... More

We went about 1 pm and only paid £7 for my entrance my granddaughter was free. We wandered around the cages and the other exhibits where the birds were either on wooden posts or in cages in the shade.. The highlight was the flying exhibition which lasted two hours from 2 pm. Most of the enjoyment was down to the... More

We arrived just before 2 in time for the afternoon flying display. The man flying the birds was amusing as well as informative and we were able to see the birds at very close quarters. The highlight of the afternoon was the chance to see a 6 week old snowy owl chick brought out to us in a cardboard box... More

If you are rn thertegion this is an unforgettable experience. Especially if you can arrive between 3pm and 5pm. I have been in UK for 5 weeks and this is the best value for money. The host is entertaining and clearly passionate about his birds

Great place to visit. Friendly and welcoming staff. Get there for 2pm to enjoy the birds flying display (weather permitting!) a good 2 hours show with a knowledgable and humorous commentary. Tea room with delicious home made cakes very welcome too.

Very interesting and informative afternoon. Good flying displays and a chance to get close up with the birds so plenty of photo opportunities. Plenty of anecdotes from the falconer who breeds and rescues all species of birds of prey. The display is a good couple of hours long, starting at 2:00pm so need to arrive in good time for the...

The birds of prey on display look amazing, the tea room very nice but most of all the presentation from Paul made the afternoon unforgettable. Despite being a rainy afternoon - we had to take shelter twice, Paul's demonstration, commentary and extensive knowledge made for a very informative and enjoyable experience. I would wholeheartedly recommend a visit.
