Overview

Providing a hands-on, practical introduction to falconry. Four people, for an hour, costs £45 in total.So whether there are one, two, three or four of you, it just costs £45.Compare this with the prices others charge and you will see what great value it is. We have access to several different flying sites, some of them deep in the heart of Exmoor. Walks here last for 90 minutes and prices vary, so look at the website for details. We go out all year round, any day, by appointment.Gift vouchers, valid for a year, are available.

There's not a negative thing to say about this activity, Nigel arrived right on time and we were out and about with Cassius in no time. To see such a magnificent bird up this close, have him flying between us whilst getting a better understanding...More

Cannot recommend this wander with Nigel enough. We, us and my parents, were lucky enough to take out the gorgeous Cassius, for the one and a half hour walk, and found the time went far too quickly. We all said we should have gone for...More

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed meeting Cassius and our walk in the countryside. Westermill is a beautiful spot but it's only one of the places at which we fly. Do come back and see us again. Regards,

4 of us booked on this as it looked awesome. It didn't let us down! Nigel's knowledge and enthusiasm was second to none, we could tell he had true passion for his birds. We would definitely recommend to anyone!
