Booked this for my mums birthday and was no doubt the best thing we done the whole time we were in bath.
So glad I booked this everything about the experience was perfect, the weather, the host and of course not forget the bird himself. There is nothing better than meeting someone that loves and cares for animals as much as I do, Jay was a perfect host had slight issue with taxi on the way there so he drove us in to the village to catch the bus which also saved us money.
Would recommend this to anyone and will deffinatley be booking this again just wished I lived closer.
I even think it would be a good idea to create some sort of donation page to ensure places like this stay up and running!!!!!

A really enjoyable, educational and personal experience. It was great to do something a bit different, and be out in beautiful countryside with the hawks!

Thanks to Jay and Charlie for a fantastic time. It was a birthday treat for me and my mate Angela and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Charlie and the setting were stunning. I've never been so close to a bird of prey, he even perched on my head and shoulder. Jay was really great and very knowledgable. It's an unforgettable experience I'd recommend to everyone.

Really glad we were able to spend time with Jay and Charlie during our 2 day trip to bath. After the short trip to the outskirts of the town centre, we were able to walk through the pretty countryside with Jay while Charlie the Hawk flew above us between the trees. When we reached the more open areas, we were able to see the amazing ability of one of these birds close up, and it was great fun.

Thanks to Jay and Charlie for a very memorable experience!

It started nicely, as the weather was perfect, sunny and slight winds.

I was very keen on doing it, my girlfriend was a bit worried. We were welcomed by the very friendly Jay, who introduced us to the basic of falconry, and to the naughty Charlie, a beautiful Harris Hawk.
We had a BLAST of an experience, both me, the very keen one, and my girlfriend, who was more worried about it. I can only recommend that to anyone. Jay was the best host, very knowledgeable, and kind. We were worried at some point as nasty buzzard tried to bully Charlie, but in the end we could all get home for a nice cuppa in the garden.

Thanks again to Jay and Charlie, we loved it.

Hi Jonas.
Thanks for your kind comments. I was a bit worried for Charlie when those buzzards mobbed him. Thanks for sticking around and helping to get him back.
