The chance to see so many different animals up close and get some quality photo's. Even on rainy days you can visit here and stay dry in the many covered areas. I shall continue to visit and take...

Fantastic place to visit. When we visited it was muddy so all of it was undetcover. Don't be afraid to pet the big owl

Passed the sign many times, always meaning to call in but only made it today. Wow! Much bigger than I thought, well laid out, friendly staff and volunteers and a wide enough variety of animals to keep everyone happy. Nice cafe with hot food/drinks and cakes, souvenirs. Well worth a visit, will definitely be back.

My friend and I stopped by the centre as a detour and loved it! The weather on the day we visited was pretty miserable but the animals made up for it. The owls were beautiful and despite the elements were well worth enduring the snow and rain for. The other animals (which were under covered areas) were also adorable and... More

Traveled 35 mins. from Ludlow. Road went on for ever.Thought sat nav. was playing tricks when it took me down a small very narrow lane for a couple of miles. As the weather was shocking the scene on arrival was not encouraging. What a surprise after we entered the complex. I did not realize there where so many owls in... More

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when visiting this centre. In the event I was completely bowled over and fell deeply in love several times with the absolutely gorgeous denizens of the farm and aviary. I didn't know much about owls but I could see myself becoming completely beguiled by their beauty, charm and personalities. I was introduced to... More

Every part of this is geared up to children having an "up close and personal" interaction with animals. It is well planned ,well maintained and well run. We... More

If you're really into owls, then this is the number one destination to visit. Four of us visited on a very cold day only to be met by four owls on perches who were very friendly........ so friendly in fact you were able to stroke them. The other owls are in flight cages with plenty of room to move about... More

What an incredible and beautiful place to visit. I will go anywhere just to be able to stroke an animal, but to walk round this magical place with four alpacas and some black swans for company is a little piece of heaven. I don't remember the last time I saw such beautifully kept, happy and healthy animals and birds as... More
