Brilliant experience
Oct 2019
I booked the hawk experience as a surprise for my wife. It was done at short notice Mark got back to me straight away to help with the surprise. Mark is a brilliant guide explaining what was going to happen on the walk, driving to where we were going to fly the hawks telling us about the local history and the estate. Then we were flying the hawks in the woods which was fantastic, my wife loved it. We then returned to learn more about the owls as well getting a chance to sit with them. If I return to the area I will go again. Mark if you read this thank you for a great day tim and sue

So much better than normal hawk experiences
Feb 2019 • Couples
Mark was an excellent and informative guide. The walk was just fabulous with three of us doing the experience with Mark we all had plenty of opportunities to have the hawk fly to us. With Marks dogs in tow it was surreal to see this magnificent bird flying up in to branches, over our heads and then to our gloves. I have stood in a field and had birds fly to a glove but this was as it should be out in the woods with the bird making its own choices on where to perch and fly to in between feeds on glove. The owls in the sanctuary were magnificent. It was a lovely birthday present to receive and thoroughly recommend it to anyone in the area but book it in advance to make sure you don't miss out.

Wonderful birthday experience
Sep 2018 • Family
Oscar the Harris Hawk is a most beautiful bird and Mark his handler is a knowledgeable and informative host. A morning spent at hawks on walks was purchased as a 70th birthday gift and it was money well spent. The birthday girl really enjoyed her day, as did the three of us that accompanied her. We all got up close with this wonderful hawk and with many other birds back at the centre. Here you can see some fantastic birds of prey, we especially fell in love with a European Eagle Owl called Borris.
We can't recommend this experience highly enough.

Knowledgeable and entertaining
Sep 2018 • Couples
From the moment we arrived we were given a fabulously entertaining and exhilarating experience, we were informed about the history of the area, the character of the birds and Oscar, a Harris Hawk, put on a tremendous show for us demonstrating what incredible eyesight these beautiful birds have. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough.

A great gift - something really special
Jun 2018 • Couples
Our daughter gifted this to us - and we loved every minute! Getting up close and personal with Bud, a Harris Hawk, was so special. I had been a little nervous about meeting these birds of prey, but Mark is a careful and expert handler and immediately put us at our ease so that we could really enjoy our walk with a hawk. A lovely way to get a new perspective on our beautiful Shropshire countryside accompanied and learn a lot about the ancient art of falconry.

A Hawk Walk On The Wild Side
May 2018 • Couples
Seeing a Hawk is special. Everything about getting up close and personal with a raptor is exciting and beautiful. Walking in the natural woodland with Dave and his working dogs was a truly heartwarming experience not to be missed. Brilliant Birthday Surprise.

The collection of Owls, Hawks, Parrots and The Raven are second to none and clearly loved and cared for. Memorable.
