“Top place to visit”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Arrived later in the afternoon when the place was quiet but was given a personal tour and descriptions of the beautiful birds followed by a personal flying demo by an Eagle Owl and a Buzzard.
Nothing was too much trouble for Mandy and he other friendly people working there.
Will definitely return for a longer visit in future and can only highly recommend Falconry Days to anyone living in or just visiting Northumberland.

BRILLIANT

“Owls are just the best!!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Visited Falconry Days for an owl experience. It was just that. What beautiful creatures and what an amazing experience. Got to fly several different owls and learn a great deal of information about them, their habitat and behaviour. It's a great day out with as much hot tea coffee included to keep you warm on a chilly day.
It's beautiful countryside but can be a little chilly in Spring due to it's higher altitude. I thoroughly recommend a visit.

“Fantastic Experience!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

Really enjoyed the Owl Experience on Saturday morning. It was lovely to be so close to the owls and to get the chance to have them on your arm and then watch them flying! They are clearly very well loved and very well looked after, and it's lovely that the caring staff know the personalities of the birds inside out! All the staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable and my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We will back to enjoy a longer session soon! Thank you everyone!

“Jones family day trip”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

What an excellent experience overall! All the three staff members were courteous, knowledgeable and likeable. We took a tour around the site, which was clean and well maintained. Then as many free cups of tea and coffee as we liked. Three birds were expertly displayed and the children enjoyed putting on the falconry gloves and interacting with the birds. Despite some very windy weather, the staff forged on and we definitely received value for money (only £21.00 for a family ticket). Well done all!
