A chance to get close to some beautiful birds of prey, to learn about them and to fly them. Also great small animal farm for young children - kune pigs, alpacas, goats, donkeys, parrots, and horses.

Visited there today only knowing that I would get to fly 3 birds. On arrival the staff were helpful and full of knowledge. The attraction is set in beautiful surroundings - lots of trees, etc. the experience of flying 2 owls and a 20 year old Harris Hawk was fantastic. Just watching each of these birds was stunning. Apart from the opportunity to fly these birds it was great to see the other owls and hawks. There were also friendly goats, pigs and donkeys. The cream tea afterwards was lovely and certainly finished off the experience.

I visited the Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre for a one hour bird of prey flying experience and it was fabulous.
The bird handler was informative and friendly and it was absolutely brilliant to get 'up close and personal' with these amazing creatures.
We had a cream tea afterwards in the warm and cosy tea room which was lovely.
Thanks to everyone it was amazing :)

This place is great. The scenery is stunning and the people who work there are enthusiastic, welcoming and passionate about what they do.

They have a great selection of Owls and a few Hawks too, with some farm yard animals and horses for trekking as well.

We did the early morning 1 hour private bird flying experience and it was great. The 3 of us got to fly 3 different owls on our own before the centre opened and it was a lovely private experience.

We then stayed for the 11:30 Owl flying show which was great. Set is a lovely old barn we saw 5 owls fly in close intimate proximity. Its true there are gaps in-between the birds, but it gives you a chance to relax and talk amongst yourself. This is not disney. It wont be slick the whole way,but it is better for that.

Well worth a a visit. We will be going back and next time we will stay the night. The local village looked great!
