My friend and I stopped by the centre as a detour and loved it! The weather on the day we visited was pretty miserable but the animals made up for it. The owls were beautiful and despite the elements were well worth enduring the snow and rain for. The other animals (which were under covered areas) were also adorable and... More

Traveled 35 mins. from Ludlow. Road went on for ever.Thought sat nav. was playing tricks when it took me down a small very narrow lane for a couple of miles. As the weather was shocking the scene on arrival was not encouraging. What a surprise after we entered the complex. I did not realize there where so many owls in... More

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when visiting this centre. In the event I was completely bowled over and fell deeply in love several times with the absolutely gorgeous denizens of the farm and aviary. I didn't know much about owls but I could see myself becoming completely beguiled by their beauty, charm and personalities. I was introduced to... More

I visited the Small Breeds Farm Park as the very proud grandmother of 3 little grandaughters. My intrepid explorers were 2years ,2years 8 months and 5years old. This place is wonderful !! Every part of this is geared up to children having an "up close and personal" interaction with animals. It is well planned ,well maintained and well run. We... More

If you're really into owls, then this is the number one destination to visit. Four of us visited on a very cold day only to be met by four owls on perches who were very friendly........ so friendly in fact you were able to stroke them. The other owls are in flight cages with plenty of room to move about... More

What an incredible and beautiful place to visit. I will go anywhere just to be able to stroke an animal, but to walk round this magical place with four alpacas and some black swans for company is a little piece of heaven. I don't remember the last time I saw such beautifully kept, happy and healthy animals and birds as... More

We have been meaning to visit the centre for ages and our only regret is not doing this sooner. We thought that it would be good, as we do have an interest in owls, but it far exceeded our expectations. What a fantastic and informative place, where you are never too old to learn. We didn't realise how much there... More

On a bitterly cold and wet New Year's Day we (adults) decided to visit this centre just outside Kington. It was a delight. We were mesmerized by the owl collection of exotic owls from around the world - some we had never heard of or seen before. All the small breeds were indoors because of the weather so it was... More

With an age range from 19 months to 69 years in our family group this visit had something for everyone. The owl collection is breathtaking, with some rare breeds on show. Other birds included highly-coloured pheasants, ducks, and geese. All fascinating to watch. The small animals range from mice to pigs, goats and small horses, all of which enthralled our... More
