Just returned from a charming few hours getting to know two Kune-kune pigs, Thing 1 and Thing 2, and ambling through the gorgeous Welsh countryside. Very relaxing stroll with excellent human conversation, tempting the pigs with food pellets and decorating them with dandelions when they weren't looking. Suitable for all ages, even unfit middle-aged women like me. Tea, coffee and... More

Had a really great day out with pro wildlife photographer Gareth Scanlon. He was so good at giving great advice on all aspects of photography and really made the day so memorable. He was so knowledgeable about the red kites and really explained their behaviour which made it easier to photograph them. Would thoroughly recommend any photographers to book this... More

It was lovely to meet the piggies and the afternoon tea at the end was perfect. Thank you all so much! I would recommend this to... More

Very informative and busy morning ,cleaning out hutches and feeding. We were able to handle the younger hedgehogs, whilst learning about the difficulties these animals are experiencing in order to survive. During the summer our hosts had 40 heggies to look after, my visit there were 25, which is an incredible number of animals which have been rescued. Our hosts... More

My wife bought me a night stargazing with experts for Christmas. It was a beautiful clear August night and my friend and I didnt really know what to expect. We had two very interesting guides who showed us how to find certain stars in the sky etc.. It was really fascinating and we couldn't have enjoyed it more. If you... More

The organisation was smooth. The Red Kite feeding centre is a great location to snap some amazing pictures of red kites in action in their natural landscape, and you have plenty of time to do so. Gareth is an enthusiastic and experienced wildlife photographer who has plenty of tips. He is very flexible depending on your experience. I had no... More

I booked both the excursions as a surprise 30th birthday present to my girlfriend. I booked over the phone with Julia.

Had a lovely afternoon with two sweet, charming Kune pigs, Thing 1 and Thing 2. They snuffled along as we led them with food and enjoyed a roll in a puddle on the way! It was an idyllic setting, really lovely countryside surrounding, and to finish off we had a nice afternoon tea with cakes while enjoying the scenery
