We have been on a half day experience and then had the fabulous birds at our wedding. We had the rings delivered then a display for the guests after the ceremony. It was brilliant and Derek did a great job entertaining the guests, everyone had a great time! It was lovely to have pictures with our favourite owl Chester. I... More

We called in on a wet day out on our way to Otterburn. The staff were very welcoming and extremely knowledgable. Even the rain didn't spoil our enjoyment of flying the birds and our private tour was made all the better with hot tea and coffee and some wonderful cheese toasties. (although I don't think this is part of the... More

We spent a great afternoon at the center and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We were lucky enough to have Mandy showing us around as her knowledge and obvious love of all the birds shone through in her talk. Later she flew "Mr Spock " the European Eagle Owl for us which was a fantastic experience. We were two couples and... More

My husband and I got a private tour by a pleasant, knowledgeable, young staff person. Our experience was very educational and the highlight of the visit was when her bird, Twitter, flew over and over again to our arm. This off the beaten path experience was well worth the travel. Be sure to follow Falconry Day's signs and not your... More

I cannot recommend Falconry Days highly enough. We visited with our 15-year-old son and spent the afternoon learning about the owls, hawks, falcons and other birds of prey who live at the centre. Set in stunning countryside, the staff are passionate about what they do and we learnt so much. The birds are beautiful, and we had the opportunity to... More

Saw Falconry Days sign as we passed on route to our hotel. Decided to go there at the last minute as a 60th birthday treat for my partner. Although we had not booked an experience as is recommended, Mandy and Mark were so welcoming and passionate about their beautiful birds and enabled us to have a wonderful day out. My... More

What an amazing experience! At the last minute we asked our tour guide to to visit lady Hill Farm. We had no idea that visiting the farm would prove to be the highlight of our trip to England! The staff were wonderful and very knowledgeable about the birds and needless to say we learned a lot and came away from... More

What a fantastic little tucked-away place - my girlfriend booked an owl experience as part of our holiday, and she absolutely loved it! We were made to feel so at home, and Mandy's knowledge of the owls is second to none. We still can't pick a favourite though!

This is the most wonderful location you could imagine for a falconry centre. The staff are extremely knowledgable and passionate about the birds. If you come away from here without learning something then there is something wrong. Follow the signs for Falcons, Eagles and owls along the single track road and once past the escarpment on the left your nearly... More
