  • Excellent indoor display today due Avian flu locally. A group of possibly 20 of us were given a superb display by Meghan and AJ of about 15 different birds of prey with which they were familier...

  • Took my 11 year old son here as a birthday present today. Lovely location set in beautiful countryside and handy for us being 5 minutes from home. The staff are very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable. On arrival we grabbed a cup of tea/hot chocolate and were allowed to wander around and look at some of the birds in their averies before being lead into the indoor flying barn (due to recent bird flu outbreak they weren't flying them outside). We got to handle and fly several owls in the morning and then had a break for lunch. The food choices were fairly limited but a good enough variety for most people to find something they like. The food itself was nice and a decent size, prices were equivalent to going to a pub, not that I begrudged paying as the money helps support the centre. After lunch we went back to the barn and enjoyed handling and flying numerous birds which was great, the staff told us about the habitats they would be found in the wild along with information about the specific bird. Overall a really enjoyable day which both my son and I really enjoyed, would highly recommend anyone with an interest in birds of prey to come here. Thank you to the staff for making it a memorable day out.
  • Very welcoming from the start. Meg was excellent with her presentation and very knowledgeable about the birds that she introduced to us. Kurt , her assistant was also very helpful. The food was very good. Even though it was hot and the flying had to be done inside due to Asian bird flu, we had a very good hands on experience. John , the owner, also made an appearance. He was very informative and showed the experience and love that he had for these birds. Well worth a visit if you are the slightest bit interested in birds of Prey. Thank you Guys. Stephanie Hart and Julian Taylor. See you again soon.
  • Staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and you get to fly birds of prey yourself with excellent supervision. I would highly recommend Yarak! As a birthday present for my son, he was over the moon. Visit this place, you will not be disappointed!
  • Well what an amazing centre. I visited here with two teenagers who loved every moment of the day. I have learned so much about these amazing birds. The interaction is superb being able to fly such majestic birds is something magical. The staff are very knowledgeable and you can see the trust between the birds and staff which is very sweet. I wish the centre all the best for the future and thank you for a great experience. If you are taking someone else and don't wish to be part of the experience the gardens are so beautiful and peaceful also the cafe is open we had lunch and it was well worth the money. Highly recommend.
  • What an amazing experience! Did the full day with owls in the morning and hawks and eagles in the afternoon. These birds all have their own story and are wonderfully cared for by John and his staff who have a passion for these birds. A truly unforgettable day x
