    Lovely
    Amazing centre with such a large variety of owls and other birds of prey. All the birds looked very content and happy. We went on a quiet day so didn’t see the handling shows but there’s a large indoor and outdoor flying space for the birds. Would definitely come back and recommend :) also the little field mice near the gift shop are so so cute

    Great day out !
    Went today and this place is fantastic. The birds look extremely happy and content. The birds seem very well cared for. The flying display was great and extremely informative. Only takes an hour or so to see the birds but the fact that you can re-enter all day meant we could look around the garden centre and then return for the flying display!

    Summer flight night
    Just to say thank you for a fabulous evening at summer flight night. What a great event, we had a lovely time. Lovely to see all the birds and some with special talents. Mark and Ben (I think) are very knowledgable, informative and enthusiastic. Great work guys! Lovely food too in the restaurant. Enjoyed the browse around all the birds afterwards! Highlights were the vulture, raven and snake bashing bird! Lovely to see the baby barn owls and the frog bird too. Well done baytree owl centre 😍

    Summer Flight Night
    We had an enjoyable evening at the Summer Flight Night, an after hours extra long bird display and food. There was also very informative commentary from our two hosts. Please thank the restaurant staff for our meal and letting us use the restaurant on a blustery evening. The birds flew well in the wind, even the youngsters. At no time were any of the birds asked to do anything they didn’t want to or were capable. After the display it was great to see more baby owls and a frog mouth too. Looking forward to the next event.

    Excellent visit for all ages.
    This is my second visit to this lovely centre. There is a wonderful variety of owls and other birds of prey from around the world, as well as some UK mammals. The facilities for the birds are excellent and are maintained by a hardworking and dedicated team. There are two demonstration flying areas, one indoor and one outside. Both have good seating, and several posts where the birds are flown onto, which gives everyone the chance to get up close to the birds. The presenters are highly knowledgeable and very engaging suiting a wide range of audiences. They also offer experience events giving the chance to handle the birds. The attached garden centre offers a decent eaterie, and tickets allow for a lunch break and return to the owls later. Well worth a visit for all ages, and excellent value for money!

    Brilliant informative and enjoyable morning
    I was given an eagle and vulture experience for my 60th birthday and came last week with my husband. Well it was incredible, extremely knowledgeable and friendly instructor who made the whole experience an entertaining and informative morning. Would definitely do this again and extremely good value for money. Just loved all the birds we were shown and flew. Highly recommend

    Amazing experience with wonderful service
    Booked a family flying experience and it was brilliant from start to finish! Our guide was so very knowledgeable and shared information in a very interesting and engaging way. It’s a lovely place with some beautiful, well cared for birds. My 13 and 10 year old boys had a fabulous time - so did my parents - so it’s great for all ages. We would highly recommend the park for a visit, but especially for an experience if you can!
