This is the best bird sanctuary we've ever been in. Very kind Staff and such healthy birds and reptiles. Ive paid a lot more to see a lot less. Mot just birds but the reptiles are fabulous. Very clean place

If you want to see large number of different owls, birds of prey or reptiles this is a great place to see them but its quite expensive to get in. Flying display was good but we only stayed 1hr... Can pop in and out all day tho.

I received a Falconry experience for my birthday, and it exceeded by far my expectation!! It lasted for three hours and learnt how to fly the British birds of prey. You started off with the owls to hold and touch, then there was the professional falconry show by one of there trainers, then we were taken inside to be taught how to fly the hawks. After that we were taken to the arena and were given another 5 birds of prey and owls to fly with our own guide Ed who was very knowledgeable, and friendly. Nothing was too much for him with the amount of question etc. We finished off the day with flying the Bald Eagle, what can i say, the highlight of the afternoon.
If anyone would like a go at falconry then i would highly recommend Liberty's

We went there on a lovely sunny day, the staff are knowledgable and pasonate about the birds the owner is a lovely caring woman who gave us a lot of her time. I will admit it is a bit run down in parts BUT and its a big but the amimals all seem very well looked after and because its a small operation you can get close to the birds and ask as many questions as you like. Excellent value for the money and its not so comercialised as some places, therefore you get more of a close and personal experiance of the birds. The cafe is small we had toasted sandwich and a cuppa all very nice and a good price. Its not charity and so it needs as many visitors as they can get so they can invest more in updating the facilities. I am a complete bird nurd and would recomend any one to go
