“Birthday treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

The hawks on walks experience was fantastic. Mark who took us round was informative, very helpful, knew his stuff inside out. This was an experience never to be forgotten and both my wife and I would recommend to both friends and family.

“Best attraction in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

I booked a hawk walk for myself and father, it lived up to all the reviews. Mark is a wealth of knowledge and extremely accommodating. The walk itself is fantastic with the bird flying to and from your glove on numerous occasions. Set in beautiful woodland, the walk is great just by itself. It does not feel like a big commercial business, care and time is taken to ensure you have a fulfilling trip. We shall be doing it again.....

“Theres a reason why its number 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

This was booked as a gift for my boyfriend for his birthday and he couldn't of been happier. Upon a arrival we were met by Mark who was so friendly and very knowledgable and let us have a look at all the birds they owned. He then took us through battlefield and told us about the history. One arrival to the woods mark explained what would happen and took care of us. All the way round Mark filled us in with so much information and was patient and helpful. The hour went so quick and we both cant wait to go back.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Walking with Hawks - This was a birthday present from my partner. This is a wonderful experience, we were taken by landrover into a forest on the estate, we then did a circular walk with the falconer, his dogs and a magnificent Harris Hawk. The Hawk was released and when a tasty morsel was held out (with a heavily gloved hand!) the Hawk would swoop down and sit on your arm.The falconer told us all about the breed and the area then when we returned to the Centre we then handled some owls and learned about the different species they have. The morning finished with us watching newborn owls being hand fed then being left to view all the other birds and animals at this small but lovely Centre. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the owners were very friendly and informative.
