Wonderful bird displays presented by someone who is obviously passionate about the birds. The kids (and the parents!) really enjoyed it. Delicious cakes in the cafe as well! Make sure you arrive when the display is on to get the most out of the visit....More

Maybe not the biggest, best equipped example of this type of attraction, but the obvious love and care that those running the centre have for the birds was heartwarming.

Visited this gem with my wife and 2 children. Everyone had a brilliant day. Kids both got chance to hold Bob the Harris Hawk. Display and talk both funny and informative. Cream tea very nice too!

We lived locally & loved going to the cosy, super friendly coffee shop for cake & good coffee - the fire was always roaring :)

Great tea room and bird display. The most in-depth and informative display I've been to, the kids were gripped the whole time, and were able to get involved.

My son has a huge interest in birds of prey but this place was a big let down. The woman at the entrance & tea room was unwelcoming and rude. We ordered cream tea and were told they were busy, we would have to wait,...More

This is a very disappointing review which needs to be responded to. We take pride in treating all our visitors in a friendly and helpful manner, explaining exactly the itinerary for the day. We always fly the birds from 2pm until 4pm and for those...More

Sorry, only just seen this question, hope I'm not too late. I think you would be ok with a wheel chair, it's all one level but you would have to go over short grass to view the display. The cafe is quite small so you may... More
