Our Visitors Feedback

Made my holiday!

“I loved my time today one hour handling was brilliant what a lovely bunch of staff and the place is so clean I couldn’t fault anything at all I would advise everyone to visit this place it’s made my holiday x”

“Great day had”

“We had a great day visiting the centre and will definitely recommend this centre to friends and family”

Lovely Birthday Celebration!

“Had a lovely birthday celebration doing the falconry experience. Andy knows his stuff and his passion and straight talking attitude are refreshing. Thank you for letting me into your world for a few hours!”

Best Birthday Present!

“I took my Aunty to have a flying experience here yesterday. She said it was the best birthday present she’s ever had and I thought it was definitely money well spent! The owners, Kelly and Andy are not only friendly and welcoming, but completely knowledgable too, we learnt so much! Their passion and caring is obvious everywhere in the centre, it was immaculate and the birds were loved as well as cared for, their wellbeing was paramount. Could not recommend it highly enough! If you are in Cornwall, it is a must see!”

Terrific Place!

“Terrific place it’s worth the entrance fee just for the flying display alone
This is the only attraction my late wife insisted on visiting every time we were in Cornwall 
The staff are knowledgeable and approachable and seem to really care about the birds 
Any questions asked to the staff are answered in a simple to understand way, you don’t feel “talked down” to like other places
You don’t feel you are nuisance like some other animal/bird attractions I’ve visited
The only drawback is they are hundreds of miles away from where I live probably just as well for them because I would live there !
Highly recommended something for every one give it a visit soon”

Lasting Impression

“I booked a half day falconry experience for my husband’s Birthday – and to cut to the chase, it was amazing. Andy really knows his stuff, and the love and passion he – and the whole family have for this centre is evident. We were really moved by the whole experience, so much so we asked to get involved! My husband now volunteers on Sunday’s! Amazing place, amazing family doing an amazing job!”

Super Day Out

“We had a super day out at your Family Fun Day on Sunday, made more special by the lovely Will Young’s Special Appearance opening up a brand new building!! He was amazing!(wish he’d given us an impromptu song!! But the Band there were fab with great vocals!)
Lovely Family run Centre with friendly staff and a good family day out for us all. Lots of Birds to see, Flying shows and lots of knowledge and passion in this area from the Owner……5* from us and we’ll see you again!”

A Must Visit!

“Book a falconary experience it is a fantastic experience which you will never forget, a must visit centre when in Cornwall!”

I get a phone call this afternoon from St Columb Major Academy regarding a young Hedgehog 🦔. I explained what to do and then Andy picked it up when he collected our three girls from school. Lovely Vicky from the office had named it Ace. I fed and watered it and now it's on route to Prickles & Paws Hedgehog Rescue to get experts looking after him. Thanks Gabbie. #teamwork ...

Just got in.
Had a buzzard bought in this afternoon which they had named Tegan ☺. I will be surprised if she makes it through the night 😔, she sadly has no fight in her. As usual we will do our best for her by getting some food into her.
Roofing now all complete on the aviaries, started hanging rope and the remainder of the toys. We are getting there......this time next week all the parrots should be in their new homes yayyy. Two of our children out helping again after school, the eldest one is at school doing a school play, which we will be watching tomorrow evening. ☺

We went to bed slightly later than normal last night and as I stepped outside the back door to pop the hedgehog 🦔 food and water out, who was running down the garden, yes Mr Hedgehog, he was running like he was late 😂. So I sat on the step and he came straight round and started eating. I was sat about two foot away..... Loved watching him and having that connection with a wild hedgehog. I'm sure he knows I would never hurt him ☺.

Then yesterday (Monday) 'another so called day off' was spent finishing the fencing, moving the goats and then we started the roof for the parrot avaries. Can't wait to get them moved into their new enclosures. 😊 #parrotrehoming #foreverhome #parrotrescue ... See MoreSee Less
