Very well kept owl sanctuary where we are led to understand (almost?) all the birds are permitted some flight time in the garden each day. We were privileged to be there when a barn owl called Orchid was flying around and about. We were even invited to take the leather glove and have her land on it and sit contentedly for some minutes, quite an experience! A real treat. Keepers were very informative, friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We’ve had a fantastic day, Debbie in reception was a great host and was also fantastic in the week helping to arrange a suitably quiet time to visit ... came today with a 7,5 and 3 year old two of the children have additional needs, Callum our guide was absolutely terrific with the children, his calm and reassuring nature was a great benefit and the children got the absolute upmost from their time with the owls ! You could tell he really enjoyed his job and he had so much time for the children ! A great experience many thanks looking forward to returning already x

Great value. 90 minutes of owl flying. Packed full of rich details about the 25+ owl varieties present. Done with young children ( 7 and 10 years old). Plenty of energy burning actives at the castle to occupy for a half to full day.

What a fabulous 2hrs. We flew 4 owls: gorgeous snowy owl Margret, Frodo, KITT and naughty Ozzi. All 4 had unique personalities and Rob made sure we saw that. Plus gave us information about how they look after them. Well worth a visit.
