It is private booking only. I think the maximum number is 6. It’s not a cheap day out but it is worth every penny. You’ll need to check directly but I think we paid £170 ish for 4 people.

Although your dogs could be in your vehicle in my drive they could not be around my owls . So in all honesty due to the lenght of your viewing I would say not a good idea.
