I had a full day flying experience today as a birthday gift it was a fantastic day both Bradley and Ryan really are very knowledgeable. I was part of a small Group of 4 so we had a lot of chance to fly all the birds. The gardens and Manor are a lovely backdrop to display the birds in flight. Lunch was in the Manor which was a nice touch. Would highly recommend this experience can't fault the whole day.... Thank you both for an amazing day.

What an absolute gem of a place !! Wanted to do something to cheer ourselves up during two weeks holiday, stuck at home during COVID-19. Have always been fascinated by birds of pray & falconry, but never been able to find anywhere close enough to me, that offers experiences of this standard. Ryan & Bradley are both top guys, extremely experienced and knowledgeable. The whole set up is class. The birds are all very well cared for and are very healthy. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our half day experience, I only wish I could have done the whole day. I will definitely be back !! Can’t recommend this place highly enough.

What a hoot! We took flight & flew the nest to the Hawking Centre. There was nothing that Bradley, our incredible host, didn’t know about these amazing animals. Ryan was equally wonderful. The exquisite settings were simple im-peck-able. Owl-in-owl this place is a tweet! Thank you for an incredible experience.

I bought a VIP half-day experience for my partner as a treat for a special birthday. We were initially given a tour of all of the birds by Bradley who was immensely knowledgeable as well as interesting. There was one other couple there. After the tour we were joined by Ryan (the owner) and we went into pairs. Bradley was with the other couple and Ryan was with us. Then my partner flew a barn owl, two eagle owls,a vulture, a harrier hawk and a Chilean blue eagle. Each bird was flown several times between us and the other couple. The birds are stunning, Ryan was extremely friendly and informative and the setting is lovely. There was also an opportunity to hold a bald-headed eagle. All in all it was fantastic!
