We are a family-run business, based in Oxenhope near the Bronte village of Haworth in West Yorkshire. We offer the opportunity to learn about falconry and to have first-hand experience of handling and flying birds of prey. We are not open to the public and visiting us is strictly by appointment only.
We hold third party liability insurance and our falconers are CRB cleared.

We own over 50 different birds of prey ranging from the smallest owls through hawks and falcons to a large eagle. Our experienced and trained falconers are on-hand to guide guests safely through the ancient art of falconry, including flying from the gloved fist, thus providing never-forgotten experiences. These include full or half days and can also encompass hunting for rabbits and pheasants around the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.
We attend schools, clubs, corporate events, galas, country fairs and weddings (including ring delivery) with static and flying displays. As an additional attraction, we have the facility to show our working ferrets and to demonstrate ferret racing; always a popular event.

We have found that for corporate occasions, our displays provide a different and exciting departure from the more standard events that are normally found.
For weddings we not only provide a ring delivery by owl or hawk, but are on hand for personal handling of the birds by the wedding party and guests (excellent photographic opportunities!) and can provide a full flying display as part of the celebrations.

We have our own marquees, fencing and PA equipment to use as necessary.
We are also fully qualified to provide the training programme for the LANTRA award for falconry.
