We have been meaning to visit the centre for ages and our only regret is not doing this sooner. We thought that it would be good, as we do have an interest in owls, but it far exceeded our expectations. What a fantastic and informative place, where you are never too old to learn. We didn't realise how much there... More

On a bitterly cold and wet New Year's Day we (adults) decided to visit this centre just outside Kington. It was a delight. We were mesmerized by the owl collection of exotic owls from around the world - some we had never heard of or seen before. All the small breeds were indoors because of the weather so it was... More

With an age range from 19 months to 69 years in our family group this visit had something for everyone. The owl collection is breathtaking, with some rare breeds on show. Other birds included highly-coloured pheasants, ducks, and geese. All fascinating to watch. The small animals range from mice to pigs, goats and small horses, all of which enthralled our... More

Was our first visit to the Centre and we were all very impressed with it. All the animals seemed happy and were all in excellent condition. Lots of different animals to see and touch with lots of hand washing and sanitiser stations dotted around. Has a small cafè serving drinks and hot food to warm you up on those cold... More

Our party of 10 ranged in age from two and a half to sixty and everyone had a brilliant time! We stayed about two and a half hours, fed the goats (and hugged a few!), chatted to the pigs and geese and watched the baby cows leaping about the field. The collection of owls was superb and all the animals... More

Really enjoyed our day out here. Could have spent all day just watching the owls and looking at their markings. Never knew there were so many breeds of owl or how different they all looked. Stroking and feeding the other small breeds was a fun addition. It was clean and all the animals looked well cared for. The only reason... More

This is at least our third visit, we love to see all the owls and other animals, especially the ones you can pet. Stroking owls, especially Numpty is very soothing. A great day out, and lots of new things happening.

Thank Tracey S
