Absolutely Stunning Owls
Aug 2020 • Couples
Me and my husband have now been twice. End of 2018 and last year in August when we was lucky to. Sandra is an absolute angel, you can see she takes care of her owls and loves them, she's absolutely fantastic and friendly and never time keeps, everything is at your own pace from holding owls, feeding them and the talks. We had the pleasure of meeting her sidekick, Darwin, both times too. Our favourite owls are Timber and Laser. Sandra offers a yearly adoption pack for an owl of your choosing too which I did as a Christmas present. You would feel like home there, we are back again this August.

Can't recommend this enough!
Oct 2020
Wow - an amazing experience! I took my boyfriend's teenage sister for a day trip, as she loves the place and had visited before. After lockdown, I thought it would be lovely to go and see some wildlife. I was certainly right in going here! We were there for nearly six hours, Sandra self-confessed at the start that she is not a 'clock-watcher' unless necessary, and seeing as the two of us and the other couple there weren't in any rush, Sandra made sure to give us plenty of time. Her colleague and helper, Darwin, was stuck with us for the day, and he was brilliant, too. They both made sure we had plenty of refreshments and got to interact plenty with the owls - not only seeing how Sandra set everything up but also seeing the huge aviaries they're kept in. Sandra's policy of not hiding anything is really comforting when seeing live animals, as well as her policy of only having one viewing per day. She talked us through each species that she has on-site, as well as allowing time for us to wander around, feed the birds, and how to safely hold them and pet them. This was an incredible experience and one which I hope to re-visit in the near-future!

Wonderful experience with owls
Oct 2020 • Family
My family had an amazing time with Sandra, her owls and her friend Chris. We learnt so much about these beautiful creatures and got to hold them, feed them and fly them. Sandra is passionate about owls and looks after them with great care and consideration. The owls seemed extremely relaxed and content. We got to interact with and hold so many stunning owls plus some rare ones, such as a melanistic barn owl called Dusk. It was a privilege to be so close them and we are still talking about which was our favourite (it's impossible to choose!) We will remember this visit for many years to come. Thank you Sandra and the Happisburgh Owls!

Experience that was a HOOT
Oct 2020
After a family trip with close friends to Norfolk and a list of activities planned, Happisburgh Owls topped our trip with such an amazing experience. We were hosted by the lovely owner Sandy who was passionate, engaging and did everything to make sure our experience was unforgettable. Her birds were stunning and the welfare standards were also impeccable. We loved it so much the wives are petitioning for another trip to Norfolk just so we can check out the range of hooters on show! Worth every penny and not overpriced in the slightest. Owl be back...

Unforgettable, truly unique experience
Oct 2020
This is a truly unique experience. We spent 4 hours in the company of Sandra, Darwin and the amazing owls. Our 7 and 9 year olds were captivated throughout - we all learnt loads and the interaction with the owls was unforgettable. Snacks (savoury pastries, cake and hot drinks) also included! So many highlights - feeding Arctic outside and Hope inside, seeing Trouble 'transform', holding the mighty Zeus. I could go on and on as the whole 4 hours was a highlight! Highly recommend this experience. (Hopefully I have got the owl names right!)

Owl Experience
Oct 2020 • Family
Sandra has amazing knowledge of her owls and they have an amazing rapport with her. She spent time answering questions, explaining about the different species of owls.
You can tell that the owls are happy(apart from Acer who is just grumpy! 😂)
A definite recommendation if you are in the area. We will be going again!

Absolutely Amazing & Unforgettable Experience!
Oct 2020
A very special, memorable and incredible day spent with Sandra, Darwin & the stunning owls today. We had so much fun, learnt so much, and we are all still in awe that we were able to have such close contact and hands on experience with so many of your lovely owls. We loved every minute, and feel very privileged. Thanks Sandra for making us so welcome, your owls are beautiful, and it's easy to see the love and care you have for these amazing creatures. Thanks also to Darwin for capturing such great photos for us too.

What an amazing time we had! Sandy obviously loves her owls, they are so well looked after. Time flew by, we learnt so many facts and all held all of the owls. Lots of photo/video opportunities. Highly recommend this.
