Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a bird of prey swoop out of the sky and land on your fist?
The Bird of Prey Experience is based in the picturesque village of Clovelly in North Devon and offers a variety of experience activities for all ages in the stunning surrounding countryside.
Beginners can experience holding a falcon, hawk or owl on the fist and taking them out in the field to practise basic handling and training skills.
Those wishing a more advanced program can spend time with a Master Falconer and receive expert tuition in basic bird management and training methods, how to keep a bird of prey and how to make some of the necessary equipment.
If you are on holiday in North Devon why not visit Clovelly and enjoy a Hawk Walk along the coastal paths or around the Clovelly Estate.
If you want to experience the art of hunting with these wonderful raptors you can spend some time enjoying the amazing skills of our Harris Hawks hunting on the site of the oldest Iron Age Fort in Europe, the Clovelly Dykes.
"Beautiful place, great food, great beer and lovely staff. what more could you want for a weekend retreat. nice comfortable bed, spacious, clean and warm. The bathroom was modern and immaculate. TV, tea / coffee making facilities, bottled water and bathroom robes were very nice touches
The food choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner was superb and very varied, something for everyone.
If you like real ale the "Hoops Best" at 4.8 abv & £3-40 a pint is what it says, the best, but each pint slides down the throat far to easily so beware!!!
Would not hesitate to go back again and again and again.
Centrally located for all local attractions and nearby towns and the scenery around this area is breathtaking.
Give it a go i am sure you will not be disappointed. good discounted rates during their quieter period (jan & feb) so we have been told but please double check this with them 1st " Nov 2012
