A delayed birthday present from my wonderful husband. A brilliant day, even with not so brilliant weather. Knowledgeable handlers full of information and stories as well as able to answer any questions thrown at them. Magnificent birds and a wonderful experience. Definitely worth it and would happily do it again.

Warm welcome and complimentary cuppa. Informative tour and interesting questions and answers. Excellent conditions and treatment of birds. Owners clearly passionate and committed to high level of animal welfare. Beautiful setting. Birds constantly lying for their own needs rather than for the visitors. All the more enjoyable to watch because of this, like visiting a working farm where the farmers... More

We stumbled across Falconry Days by accident. If truth be told we ignored our sat nav and ended up in the wrong place! To save the day, we decided to follow the road signs for Falconry Days and had an absolutely outstanding experience. Our time there just flew in (no pun intended) as we learnt so much from Mark. His... More

This is a different experience to any bird of prey centres I've visited in the past - the priority is clearly the care and training of the birds, with catering to tourists in second place, which is really how it should be. This in no way means that it is not an excellent experience, but don't expect the sort of... More

We did option 3 and had the mini falconry experience - worth every penny! Was a fantastic day out (helped by the sunny weather!) but the staff made it, their dedication and passion for these impressive birds is infectious! Spent a good 3 hours having a really interesting tour followed by over an hour of flying and handling a gorgeous... More

It wasn't a planned trip, we just followed the signs. We were greeted by Mandy who made us drinks and then took us through to the enclosures for a guided tour. Mandy was a lovely lady, full of knowledge and enthusiasm for birds of prey. A great discussion with her (we could have talked for hours) and then we were... More
