We have taken a number of precautions to make your visit to us safe and enjoyable.

To help with social distancing, we now have a one-way system around the centre for visitors. 

All our experience days take place outside in our open woodland area.

Experience days will be undertaken on a “Same household” basis, meaning there will be no other families/guests present during your experience unless they are specifically booked with you.

All our equipment will be cleaned before each use.

All vouchers affected by the pandemic will be given an automatic validity extension, we wont hold you to the expiry date!

Like all bird of prey centres, we were forced to close for around 3 months to help stop the spread of coronavirus. The financial impact of this has been nothing short of catastrophic for us as a small business.  

We are looking forward to having everyone back! However, if you can't visit and would like to support us, you can help us in the following ways:
