Notes to help you choose your ideal experience: 

We offer three bird of prey experiences to suit everyone's budget and availability of birds.  We have provided guidance below for different ages of child, however we cannot be responsible if a child or adult is unable accept a bird flying to their gloved hand.  Rod has a great deal of experience helping everyone through challenging times whilst flying the birds, but a few times has had to concede it was not possible. 

If children are in your group please note the following guidelines:

Smaller owls suitable for 6yrs+;   larger owls and hawks for 8yrs+;  

All sessions must be pre-booked  - please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your booked time as others might still be flying or leaving after the previous session.  There will be time to look around the Centre and Wildlife Garden where the Owls are housed before or after your flying, and you can also meet the horses at this time. There will be plenty of time for photographs during your session, but not during the flying as the bird needs to be kept focussed until it has finished its flying session.

The toilets are situated in the car park, and Reception is in the front entrance to the House 50m along the lane - there is no cafe on site, but we recommend Kitnors in Bossington, Periwinkle Cottage in Selworthy, or Horner Tea Gardens.

We thank you for supporting us by booking your Experience with us - covid and current measures nearly forced the closire of our business - thankfully crowd funding and then workshop participants have helped us through these difficult times for the time being, however we see very few people in the winter months.  Any vouchers bought as presents will be honoured into the future so please continue to support us as you currently do so, and buy vouchers for your friends, family and loved ones as gifts for Christmas.  We are hugely grateful for your support - thank you.
