The half and half experience (30 min hawk walk and 30 min owl handling) was perfect, great value for money and Mark was extremely friendly. Khan was the Harris Hawk we flew. Gave a lot of information and answered questions with a great deal of knowledge.

I arranged a surprise visit for my mother in laws 50th birthday to have a hold of the owls for 6 of us. We had such a great time, no rushing and could see they truly loved all the birds. Learnt a lot and they went above and beyond. Thank you for a great day. will definitely be back again.

Our village Ladies Group organised a visit to the centre and it was a fascinating day out. The staff are very knowledgable and really care about the birds and conservation.They show you how eggs are incubated, tell stories how some of the birds came to be there and most exciting of all allow you to hold some of the birds....

What a great place, I took my young son who loves looking at all the birds. Well run, all the birds look well looked after and are obviously exercised regularly and cared for well. Rob was excellent, very knowledgeable. More people should know about this place!

There are other falconry centres, but this one is special. The owls are adorable and varied, and the Falcons are really impressive. The staff is knowledgable and friendly and the resident dog magnificent. It's right by the Battlefield farm shop (fantastic, with great meat and produce from the estate - and food fresh made from it), and the restaurant is... More

Took our 3 children as a last day of the summer holidays treat, they and we loved it. Took Maisy the Hawk out for a walk through the woods, and had her land on each of our arms. Then had a lovely time handling some of the owls too.
