Exmoor Owl & Wildlife Sanctuary
Fly with us....for that special Exmoor Experience and reconnect with nature
We offer a number of unique owl and bird of prey experiences for all the family, plus horse riding for experienced riders, gentle horsemanship workshops, and B&B in our cosy and comfortable 15th Century farmhouse.
When you visit you can fly the birds yourself to your gloved hand for an hour for small family groups or a half day extravaganza experience for owl and hawk enthusiasts! Our birds are trained so that they reveal their natural behaviours, and there are plenty of photographic opportunities during your private experience.
Flying displays are offered for those that do not wish to fly the birds themselves, four days a week. Pre-booking is essential. Please visit our websites for more details.
Owl and Hawk Experiences
Our owl and hawk flying experiences are unique! Here you will meet so many different personalities, have conversations with the birds, and make a real connection with them. Our owl barn gives the smaller owls the opportunity to express themselves in a natural way without restraint, to be themselves, whereas the larger birds are flown over the open ground in our flying field, they are never tethered, and are generally flown to and from their aviaries.
We offer Owl and Bird of Prey Flying Experiences in the mornings for a 'Taster Experience' or a 'Half Day Experience' with our owls and hawks. Pre-booking essential. Please see our website for more details.
During the summer season we will be offering Flying Displays in the afternoons at 2pm on a Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday for a limited number of visitors. Pre-booking essential. During these displays we will be flying some amazing birds, including a Palm Nut Vulture, Common Buzzard, and a Harris Hawk, as well as some beautiful Owls from around the world.
