We spent a fantastic hour with Bud the Harris Hawk, swooping down onto our leather gauntlets, as we wandered with Mark through the peaceful woodland. An experience not to be missed! We then spent a further hour looking at the other birds of prey back at the office before having a lovely lunch in the Battlefield cafe next door. Definitely... More

Went today (07/01/17) for my other half's Birthday. Very accommodating and friendly. The walk and experience itself was fabulous, something completely different and immensely enjoyable. Would recommend this to anyone.

This walk with Rob and his hawk Stella was a lovely experience. Seeing the bird flying free, having it land on your own gloved hand and seeing the bond between man and bird was unusual and special. We could not recommend this more highly.

This was an amazing experience. 'Khan' the hawk was incredibly graceful in the air and very gentle when taking the food from my hand, but a few times we watched him walk along the ground when he appeared a lot more ungainly! Mark was very knowledgeable about the local area as well as the hawks and he was happy to... More

I would highly recommend the hawk walk. My boyfriend and I went this year and we were very impressed. It's a unique way to get up close to "Khan" the hawk. Mark was very knowledgable and we found the time flew... (Excuse the pun). Excellent, would definitely go again!

Took hubby to this for his birthday and was thoroughly impressed. The hawk walk itself was brill with plenty of interaction and laughs. The knowledge these guys have and the work they do is inspiring and we got so much out of our time spent there. Holding and stroking the Owls being my favourite part! I would truly recommend this...
