The talk for the children was done whilst flying the owl and was pitched very well so that all ges got something out of it. Was very... More

Thank you to Rob for my son's amazing junior owl experience. We all learnt so much about the barn owl, tawny owl and my son's favourite, Bolt the little burrowing owl. Although quite nervous, my son hasn't stopped talking about it and wants to go back.

My son treated me to an Owl experience as I have always loved these owls particularly the barn owl, but as we know owls are not the easiest birds to see, only hear. To take part in the owl encounter at Blakemere was a real privilege, experiencing the birds at close quarters. The expert who led our session spoke with... More

I paid an extra £35 to be a spectator throughout the day which included lunch and tea throughout the day and I was able to take as many photographs as... More

We went with our 8 year old daughter to the falconry and had a great time. The informative show was a real treat with the birds swooping over our heads as we listened to the very knowledgable staff. A lovely day out.

My son was bought an owl experience for his 8th birthday. It was brilliant, shared with another child of similar age, time was well distributed between the 2 children and the encounter with the barn owl was very close and personal. The demonstrator instantly engaged with the children and made the experience entertaining, whilst ensuring that the owl facts explained... More

Visited today had a thoroughly enjoyable time staff both friendly and knowledgable. Bird handlers encourage you to interact with birds of prey (and reptiles!). Highly recommend. Fantastic value for money.
