Had a fantastic time, spent almost two and a half hours watching the display, Bob the Harris hawk was a particular highlight. Tea rooms were good, homemade scones and a good selection of cakes. Well worth the visit and we would love to come back!

It’s a good to see such fantastic birds in action and in full flight without any restrictions. The presenter could have showed more birds or should have shown the falcons for a shorter time.

Sorry, only just seen this question, hope I'm not too late. I think you would be ok with a wheel chair, it's all one level but you would have to go over short grass to view the display. The cafe is quite small so you may... More
