My wife had treated us to a one-to-one session whilst in Wales for my Birthday and we had a wonderful afternoon with Barry & Luce and the birds. The knowledge these two have and the love they show for their birds is nothing short of amazing and inspiring. We felt completely at home with Barry & Luce and tried to take on as much knowledge as possible and it was amazing to be able to handle so many different birds. Budge(Caring Owl) was especially entertaining whilst the Bald Eagle was impressive, and somewhat heavy! Still waiting for news if Kessie the Kestrel is a boy or a girl....
We cannot rate this place more highly and I am sure we will return soon.

Memorable afternoon spent in the company of Barry and Luce and their incredible family of birds. The depth of knowledge here is staggering, two people who have gravitated together from their love of birds of prey and a common interest in conservation and protection.
My wife (birthday surprise) and I received the warmest of welcomes and the experience includes hands on with the birds and participation in flying and training. Don’t hesitate..book an experience you will never forget.

This has been the most amazing day! We so much enjoyed learning more about their beautiful birds and being able to handle them.

Luce and Barry are warm and welcoming, knowledgeable and passionate about their birds. They have an amazing variety of birds and they are just a delight to spend the afternoon with.

We will remember this day for the rest of our lives. Definitely TOP TEN!

This afternoon visit to the most beautiful valley was a true experience. We all learned so much. The birds are truly loved and respected, not 'used'. They do what birds in the wild do. Did I ever expect to have a Bald Eagle on my arm? Never! Could I see right into the owls nose? Yes! Anyone who loves birds would love this. We will be back.

The Forge is set in amazingly beautiful countryside and the Falconry Experience was a memorable experience. Just listening to Luce and Barry talk very knowledgeably about the birds with such enthusiasm was fantastic. I have learned a lot from this visit. A big thank to Luce & Barry and also to the avian stars at Falconry Experience Wales.
