Was given this as a birthday gift, and quickly arranged the day out. Great spot, the sun was shining and had a really good day. Del Boy was full of facts all day and made it interesting and flying the birds showing them off was good to see. I am now looking at booking the hunting day, great guys and a great day out if you have the chance to go.

I bought the full day falconry experience for my sister's "big birthday" last summer, and this was she and I using the two person voucher. (Trip Advisor doesn't give an option for being with just adult family members).

The day was absolutely excellent and I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in birds of any sort. The day started with some learning about most of the birds, looking at some and holding some. After a (bring your own) packed lunch, we flew a number of birds with our excellent guide, Derek. I never thought I'd get to handle owls, kestrels and falcons.

The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, but of course the birds were the real stars of the show!

They run various other days if you're looking for something shorter/different.

But it's not for the faint hearted; be prepared for the birds being fed whole (dead) chicks. If you don't like the sound of that, this probably isn't for you.

Very highly recommended!

An exceptional experience set in an exquisite location. Mandy was really informative and I learnt a lot of interesting facts about owls. Delicious homemade soup was served up by Mark. I can’t wait to go back. Thank You Falconry Days Northumberland.
