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!”

This morning we get a phone call from a gentleman concerned with his 4 wk old baby Harris Hawk. It's leg is splayed - Splay Leg (also commonly called “Spraddle Leg”) is a condition that causes young chicks to have one or both of their legs slip to the side of their bodies twisted out from the hip, making it impossible for the bird to walk or even stand. He has given us the bird to see if we can assist it. Both legs should be tucked up underneath the bird but one is out to the side as you can see in the picture. Will update with more pictures and what we are doing to assist the bird later on. Fingers crossed 🤞 everyone ☺ ... See MoreSee Less

Just been handed a Young Sparrowhawk that couldn't fly. OMG it was alive with 'Flat Flies' never have Andy or I ever seen so many on one bird. The bird is underweight and also had fly eggs on her. Jane, the lady that bought her round was happy that we could help and donated towards the work we do here which was much appreciated. We have sprayed her, sat and picked off fly eggs and have popped her in the hospital unit with a lovely feast. Fingers crossed for Holly the Sparrowhawk, which was named after Jane's daughter Holly, who accompanied Jane tonight.
