What a fantastic afternoon we have had. My son was given this treat as a present from his grandparents and what a great experience it was. A very warm welcome from Jay, Jake and Naomi followed by a lovely walk to fly Mowgli (Hopefully spelt right). Thank you and we hope to see you again very soon.

We had a fantastic afternoon with Charlie the Harris Hawk and Jake. We walked through the countryside to a quiet field and spent an hour and a half flying Charlie. It was so hands on and we were able to get up close to the hawk which was fantastic. Would highly recommend West of England Falconry, so friendly and professional.

Had a fantastic time with our 7 year old flying the birds. We had lots of flights each and enjoyed everything, even Charlie landing on our heads!! Would highly recommend especially with kids.

I bought the falconry experience for my partner as a bday present. I was sent a lovely voucher which I was able to put inside the birthday card (a nice bonus!). Jay was highly professional - putting us both at ease with Charlie. It was amazing being so close to such a wonderful bird. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning out... More

We have just had a great day out at West of England Falconry courtesy of a birthday present bought by my wife. We arrived early so spent some time looking around the aviaries to see some of the birds of prey cared for here. Unfortunately, Jay was unable to join us for the actual walk through injury, but we were... More
