Visit our unique 15th century farmstead, home to one of the worlds finest collections of flown owls and hawks, and a small horse riding establishment, within Exmoor National Park. On your adventure you will fly a wide variety of up to eight owls and hawks to your gloved hands, learn about their natural behaviour in the wild, how they would catch their prey, and their interdependence on other species and their environment for their survival. All set in the magnificent setting of Exmoor surrounded by woods, hills and the sea, close to Porlock, Minehead and the Southwest Coast Path. Your experience will finish with light refreshments of tea/coffee and cake or cream tea.

Throughout the adventure there will be ample opportunity for taking your own photos or each other, and Rod will also take photos and video of your experience which he will share with you via Instagram or WhatsApp
