  • Can only echo all of the other reviews with top marks for the walking with wolves experience. Worth the money and what counts is that you can see how much Daniel and Dee think of their animals. A trul...  read more »

  • We have been here three times now and absolutely love it. I am and have been for years passionate about wolves. These magnificent and highly intelligent creatures are so often misunderstood. Getting close and personal with these two wolves is an experience not to miss and never forgotten. We have always been treated well by Dee and Daniel. Their knowledge and enthusiasm are both very evident and we always felt at home with them. It has been a tremendous privilege to spend a little time with these priceless wolves and see their progress from young cubs to almost full grown adults. Both my wife and I are determined to revisit at least once a year as long as we can. If you want an opportunity to share a small portion of your life with these amazing animals then give Daniel or Dee a call. Oh I nearly forgot the highlight of the walk. Getting the chance to howl with the wolves. Unforgettable!!
  • An awesome experience, great hosts with brilliant knowledge. This is a must do, put not on your bucket list now.
  • Found this activity in the "Welcome to Lakeland" brochure that is free in all hotels,Guest houses. etc, decided to give it a visit, got to Ayside , couldn't find said location, so I rang only to be told "don't do casual visitors" and as it was pouring down and on the 22nd Jan, wasn't exactly brimming with millions of visitors , wanting to spend much needed funds,We headed into Grange over Sands, Really disappointed 😡 Amillions of visitors
  • Walking With Wolves - To be so close to such magnificent creatures is a genuine privilege and it quickly becomes very clear how very different a wolf is from even the largest of domestic dogs. The smell alone is just, well, different, but the behaviour and locomotion are in another league from the average pet. Our session was in sleet and snow, which seemed perfect conditions for wolves and somehow appropriate. Try your best to concentrate on Dee & Daniel's easy commentary as the walk unfolds, as you will learn as much about wolves and lupine communities in 90 minutes as in a whole year of coffee-table wildlife television. All this, just in Cumbria - much more accessible than the Canadian Rockies!
  • I recently spent the day at the predator experience with my partner and his 18 yr old son. The Walking with Wolves experience is one I can’t recommend highly enough and one which we’ll be talking about for a long time to come. This is a very hands on affair, and you will be up close and personal with these iconic and beautiful animals. There were only the three of us in the group so we were all able to take one of the wolves on a lead (actually I think it took me for the walk!) whilst watching the antics of the other roaming free, doing what it does naturally, foraging and hunting in a beautiful old woodland. If they are both off the lead together they get into mischief but Dee will explain! Make no mistake these are powerful animals and you have to respect them in order to become honorary pack members, but follow a couple of simple rules and there won’t be any problems. They don’t like hats or sunglasses so be prepared to relinquish these, but cameras are welcome. Dee is an expert in wolf behaviour and an absolute mine of information which she’s happy to share. She really is passionate about all her animals and it’s clear that she wants them to enjoy the experience too. She has the different howls off to a tee and the wolves are more than happy to join in so be prepared to be deafened! We also had a Hawk Walk in a different wood, with Dee’s Harris Hawk. Again, there’s no such thing as standing watching; you’ll have the gauntlet, the meat, and a very fast and accurate hawk will land on your hand before taking off to display its amazing flying skills. Dee’s rapport comes through years of working with her birds and the trust between the two of them is clearly mutual. Not everybody is a creepy crawly fan but tarantulas are actually really lovely and having one walking over your hand isn’t a bit scary so give it ago. We thoroughly enjoyed it as we did the snakes who were quite inquisitive and will happily disappear up your sleeve if you’re not quick enough. Dee is very good at gauging how well (or not) you’re doing, so will intervene if she senses you’re not comfortable. If you just want to watch and not touch, no problem. Thanks Dee and Daniel for a great day. Mark, Fraser and I will definitely be back, and are looking forward to the 3 new arrivals which I won’t name as I want to be first in the queue.
