Testimonials

“Dear Paul, We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to you for a wonderful day with you and the birds on Saturday 27 October. Being out on the hills with you and flying the birds was an absolute privilege and an experience we shall never forget. It was a treat to see someone so passionate about their work, and it made the day that bit more special. We appreciate all the efforts you went to in looking after us. Hawk Experience has a great setup there and we will hopefully be back again. Thank you once again. Best wishes, Joanne & John, & Christine & John McNiel.”


“Dear Paul and John, Thanks for a great day on 24 October. We both consider it one of the best experiences we have had. To get so close to those majestic birds was magical. Kind regards, David & Joyce Powles.

“Dear Chris and John, We’d like to say a big thank-you for making our day on 23 September so enjoyable. John - you certainly went out of your way and it was very much appreciated. It will be a memory we will both have forever. Best wishes, Ruth & Nigel Clement.”


“Chris and Paul, Just a note to say thank-you for a fantastic day on Tuesday 11 Septeber. It was an experience just to see the birds close up, but to handle and fly them was an experience we’ll never forget. The day was further improved by the obvious enthusiasm and knowledge you both have. Thanks again, David & Chris Cartwright. P.S The arm has just about recovered from the strain of holding Sidney.”


“Dear Chris, Just a few lines to thank you for supplying us with what we all agree was a marvellous day. We could not fault anything at all (by the way the soup was pretty good too!). From the moment we arrived until the point of our departure we all felt at ease and very welcome. We must say a big thank-you to Big John, a true gentleman, a credit to his profession and extremely informative on all aspects of falconry and the surrounding countryside. Your birds look amazing and it is obvious even to novices that they are very well cared for. The whole experience was memorable and we look forward to visiting you again. Thanks once again. Jamie, Suzanne and Josh.”

“Paul, Just wanted to say a big thank-you for a very interesting and enjoyable morning we spent with you on Friday 26 October. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel extremely welcome. Catching the rabbits were an added bonus and we enjoyed the stew! With best wishes for your continued success at Brackenbottom. Regards, Linda & Gary Tomlinson.”


“Dear Chris and John, Just a line to say thanks very much for the excellent day we had on Monday 8 October, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. The professionalism and hospitality were superb. Looking forward to seeing you at Warwick Castle. David and Renee.”


“Dear Paul and Gang, Just a short note to say thank-you for a fantastic weekend! It was a great experience for all and it seems very rare to find such genuine people like yourselves, who made us feel so very welcome with your friendliness and kindness. Hopefully we’ll see you again next year, have a great Christmas and New Year! You’ll be very recommended by us all. Take care all of you. Love Karen, Gary, Renee and Dennis.”

“I had a fabulous half day on Saturday 6 October, it was really well organised and in very natural surroundings where the birds are well cared for but not in a zoo-like setting. It was by far the best Birds of Prey experience I have had to date. The knowledge and expertise of Paul is second to none, his passion clearly visible. One day I would like a bird of my own and you would be the first place I would come to for advice. Thanks again. Jon Mountain.”


“Hi Paul and Chris, I was with you on Saturday 3 November participating on the Eagle Experience. Thank you both for an amazing day - it will stay with me for the rest of my life!! Just wanted to know if the birds are alright after the fireworks over the road? I wish you all the best for the future. Roy and I will definitely be visiting you again and are planning to see your show at Warwick Castle next year. Again-THANK YOU. Claire Gadd.”
