“Hawk walk and owl handling”

Both the hawk walk and owl handling were amazing. You get to feed the hawk which was great, and the owner told us lots of facts along the way. Me and my partner really enjoyed it. Would recommend for all ages.

What a great experience! Me and my wife went on a hawk walk yesterday and had a truly amazing time. Being out in the countryside and having such a personal experience with the hawk was unique and very special. There was plenty of time to handle the hawk and Mark provided lots of knowledge on the area and birds. Excellent value for money....we were not rushed and Mark did not mind that the walk went well over the time. A day we will always remember and will definitely return with friends. Thank you

Mark and Val run an excellent business. To interact with a wild creature is not a typical experience. The birds are lovely to look at and the walk itself is exhilarating. Mark's knowledge of the area adds a new dimension to the experience.
Do not go if
* you don't like animals
* you don't want to enjoy the outdoor experience
* you don't want to learn some history
* you don't like seeing the joy of hunting dogs in the field
* you don't want to come away feeling that life if great!

My partner bought me a hawk walk and birds of prey experience as a birthday present. I got the chance to fulfil a long-held ambition to fly a hawk - and the experience more than lived up to my expectations. Mark was helpful and informative and gave us plenty of time to handle the birds. This was a wonderful experience and I very much hope to make a return visit. Thoroughly recommended.

I thought this would just be one for the kids, however this was an eye opener. A most enjoyable and captifying experience. Top man.
