  • Sandra was incredibly friendly and welcoming just like the owls. Having never held an owl before we were both quite nervous but with the guidance provided our confidence grew throughout the experience...  more »

  • My husband Alan & I were given a visit to Happisburgh Owls as a Christmas gift from our family & what a gift !! On arrival Sandra met us with a very warm welcome then we went indoors to her "Owl Room" where such a display of these fantastic birds were waiting to amaze us. Sandra is VERY knowlegeable about every one of them and she had us transfixed as she talked about them -before we took each one in turn on a gloved hand out into her lovely garden. Its impossible to select one owl as a favourite but I quickly became besotted with tiny "Munchkin", a baby Little Owl who is only a few weeks old. Drinks and snacks were provided after all the owls (except Munchkin) were settled in their fabulous individual aviaries around the garden. Sandra is so passionate about her birds and all that enthusiasm is very infectious. We came away with a camera full of photos and a definite promise that we will return.
  • I went along as part of a photography group to photograph my favourite animal, I could not think of anything better. I was wrong, meeting Sandra and all the owls was without a doubt one of the best days of my life. Sandra was very proffesional and clearly knew alot about owls as a whole. Before we even managed to snap a single picture we were introduced to some of her owls and learnt about them. Well for me I was in heaven so to speak. All of the owls were clearly happy and comfortable, there housing was awesome and clean and tidy. It is hard not to have a favourite and I thought I wouldn't as I just love love all owls but I was wrong. I have 2 , but there is one in particular who has pulled at my heart ever since that day, but that is between me and them. The experiance was both magical and informative. Lunch was also provided and Sandra could not do enough for us. Thankyou so much Sandra for sharing your beautiful owls with all of us. Lots of love and hope to see you soon. Wendy x
  • Had a excellent day helping out at Happisburgh owls. Definitely recommend for anyone who wants to meet some lovely owls in a beautiful garden setting.
  • An absolutely amazing experience, this really deserves 6 or 7 stars! The lady who runs the sanctuary is so passionate about owls and its really obvious that the owls are treated brilliantly. The owls are happy to be held, touched and stroked. We saw the averys where the owls live which were clean and spacious, not many place will let you see that. We paid for a 2 hour session but we were there for about 3 1/2 to 4 hours without being made to feel like we'd overstayed.
  • A brilliant day with the owls a must if you are in Norfolk
