The West Country Falconry experience sessions last around 2 ½ hours and takes place in beautiful countryside within a 10 minute drive from Tavistock. They usually begin with a “hawk walk” accompanied by a handsome Harris Hawk – participants will from time to time call him down from a tree onto an outstretched gauntlet. The session continues with other birds taking their turn to fly, the owl often being a great favourite. Bring a camera!

Dartmoor Hawking is one of Britain’s few private falconry centres, Dartmoor Hawking has moved to a new sight in the south hams, between south Brent and Loddiswell, in the rolling foot hills of Dartmoor National Park, on a 200 acre farm so they have plenty of space to allow clients to really see these magnificent birds flying at their best. But the wings of a raptor have few limitations and they also have access to about 15,000 acres of hunting/flying ground away from the site.
