It is great to see that for Sandra, owls definitely come first and they can choose whether they wish to interact with visitors or prefer to just be observed. And perhaps this freedom is what makes them so friendly when you do get to interact...More

We had a wonderful time at Happisburgh Owls. Attentive host who spent time to personalise the experience and the well-being of the owls is clearly of upmost importance. A real privilege to be so close to such magnificent birds, memories to be treasured. Thank you.

Excellent - Sandra and her family owls made us very welcome. Such a special and personal experience! The owls are kept in spacious aviaries which are kept lovely and clean plus fed the best food - when can we move in! Highly recommended.

It is private booking only. I think the maximum number is 6. It’s not a cheap day out but it is worth every penny. You’ll need to check directly but I think we paid £170 ish for 4 people.

Although your dogs could be in your vehicle in my drive they could not be around my owls . So in all honesty due to the lenght of your viewing I would say not a good idea.
