    Husky Hike

    We spent a wonderful Easter Sunday at Eagle Heights, specifically for the booked Husky Hike. As a family of animal lovers, my husband especially loves huskies, it was the next best thing to experience the dogs as we don't have the set up or experience to look after a husky of our own. It was really good to learn more about the breed and the joys and pitfalls of looking the dogs. The staff were more than happy to answer all our questions and it was clear how much they loved working with the dogs and at the wildlife foundation. Their knowledge and interactions with each dog only emphasised how much they cared and how looked after these animals were. As a bonus we finished the hike just in time for the bird display and this was brilliant, really fun and full of interesting facts. I really hope to return in the summer as it is a lovely drive out and a great place to spend a few hours.

    Excellent and informative. We loved holding and flying our favourite birds and to see them up close. Stayed for display and look around the centre. Staff are so passionate and committed. This was one of many visits we've made and we will continue to return.

    Eagle Height Husky Hike

    There are 28 Husky dogs, all different sizes and temperaments. Our leader picked out the most suitable dogs for the people in the group, there were two each per dog with a lead each; they are very strong and we walked in a specific order so the dogs would get on. The hike was through the countryside and woods, stopping for the dogs to have a drink and we could make a fuss of them and take photos. They are extremely well looked after and the Guy who took our hike out was really knowledgeable. We absolutely loved it.

    I paid for for husky kennel tour for my Family. Probably one of the best things I’ve ever done, the dogs are beautiful and well cared for. Some have come from horrible past owners and these guys have given them a second chance.

    The meerkats were magical. The birds of prey flying display was one of the best that we've ever seen. We even saw the serval cat. A really good day out.

    VIP Experience Day
    5
    Had a fantastic time seeing the flying displays, having a flying encounter with an owl and a Harris hawk. Best bit was meeting all the huskies. Only downside was not realising that as VIP visitors we could have pre-booked our lunch. We queued 30 minutes in the café to get lunch and were then late getting to the huskie enclosures. The lady then told us that we could have pre-booked – but other than that it was a brilliant day.

    Owl Handling Experience
    5
    Was booked this for a special birthday and had an absolutely wonderful time. The handler (sorry his name escapes me) was knowledgeable and was happy to answer all the questions we asked. The birds were beautiful and happy to fly to and from strangers. Have been to Eagle Heights several times over the years with family and it is a great place for a lovely day out. The staff work hard conserving the animals they look after. Well done. Would recommend to everyone not for an experience but to go and see some stunning birds of prey that you wouldn't normally see.

    Awesome owl experience
    5
    A lovely morning spent with 4 beautiful owls. Flying, feeding and learning with the knowledgeable and passionate handler, Hannah. This was followed up with a flying display with some great birds of prey. Then a nice cafe lunch, and a look around the rest of the centre. A great way to spend the day. Highly recommend.

    Lovely tea, very well presented and with a good choice of sandwiches. Our request for plain scones was met, which was very pleasing. Nice choice of cakes too. It was great to see the birds of prey after even though the weather wasn’t conducive to outdoor activities.

    VIP activity day

    Having been to Eagle Heights several times before I had a good idea on what to expect. I was given the experience as a gift for myself and my partner, and it was brilliant, we both thoroughly enjoyed our day, the staff were very friendly and helpful, and for a day that's aimed as a sort of "all-round insight" type of day, you still get a good amount of time in each part. I would very much recommend this to others.

    What a brilliant day, this was the best birthday gift I could have given to my son Daran for his birthday, he has loved birds since he was a little boy. Kev was just amazing with so much experience with the Eagles we had the privilege to meet today, my son absolutely loved flying the Eagles and learning so much from Kev. We will definitely be back to visit again soon, Thank you.

    What an amazing day! Absolutely brilliant day. Flic, our guide for the day was excellent. The knowledge and passion was great, I picked up so much information. Sophie was running the bird shows and, again, was passionate and knowledgeable about the birds- even managing to convince people the vultures aren't actually bad birds! Staff were friendly and attentive, nothing seemed too much for them. I cannot find any faults for the day at all. Thank you again for a memorable day, I will definitely be going again!

    Did the VIP experience today, Flick was great and telling us the background to the birds and the getting to hold them and meeting the huskies was great. Sophie's bird shows were the best part of the day showing the birds as real characters and individuals with so much educational information but delivered in a way you did not realise you were learning at all. Amazing and well worth a visit Only down side was missing out on chance to hold the bald eagle who could have been brought into us

    Alpaca hike
    5
    Guides were friendly people and knowledgeable about the Powell-cotton museum and the estate, they made you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the day. Alpacas were very easy to handle and look after, it was lovely to take them out in a open area and then for a walk. Great day

    Afternoon tea

    We booked an afternoon tea for 4 via groupon and I am pleased we did so through groupon as if I had paid full price I would have been even more disappointed. Sandwiches left a lot to be desired, we had between the 4 of us 3 smoked salmon fingers, 4 cucumber, 4 egg and 4 cheese and pickle. Very low price items and not luxury, perhaps adding a few more varied flavours, perhaps a ham, or tuna would bring it up a notch. Cakes were also disappointing, in th advertising picture it shows a vast selection but in reality it was not the case. Sadly I don’t think I would return.

    100% would recommend! What an amazing place! some incredible animals and the staff are brilliant. Had a fab eagle experience day today which I'll never forget, didn't want it to end. We absolutely loved Kevin, our instructor, what a great guy - clearly has a lot of passion for his animals. An asset to the foundation! We will come back again I am sure of it. Thanks for an incredible experience xxx

    I bought this for my husband he loved it and said that Kevin, obviously, is passionate about the birds and that he was able to pass that onto the experience recipients. The only criticism is that I would have liked to have seen my husband completing this experience but, after paying £99 for the afternoon it seemed excessive to have to pay a further £20 for me to watch.

    Fabulous Husky Hike

    This weekend we did the Husky Hike at Eagle Heights. Fabulous experience, we had a mother and daughter duo Heidi & Coco, which was appropriate as I took my daughter. Our guide Helen was a delight. The scenery is lovely and the dogs a joy. One to do again for sure

    Booked the owl experience for my husbands birthday. Brilliant. Although the weather was wet and we had to be inside, it did not detract from the show at all. Learned so much that we didn't know before and being so close and handling the birds was amazing. Stayed on to watch a bird of prey display which was equally good. Will definitely be back (on a finer day) with the grandchildren! Thankyou Eagle Heights.

    What a fabulous day we had, great weather, great place and lovely staff. Your staff are polite friendly and extremely informative about all the animals that they clearly are passionate about. The bird displays are amazing and spectacular and so informative you feel as if you are learning something all the time. The huskies that you have are so beautiful and you can tell they are loved and cared for so well. We then had the most delicious afternoon tea, so fresh and tasty. We would certainly recommend anyone to visit and have a great experience, we will certainly be back. Well done and thank you so much for an absolutely perfect day.

    My wife and I enjoyed the Husky Hike immensely and learned a lo about huskies from our very knowledgeable guide. The climax was going in with four of the huskies which is an unforgettable experience. It was also good to experience the bird display even though it was cut short by the weather. Presenter was very good. All in all a thoroughly excellent day, Thank you all.

    Great day out
    5
    Really great day out, great experience highly recommended. Our guide for the VIP day experience. I think her name was Emma , she was a blonde lady was very knowledgeable and funny and made the day much more interesting so top marks there. You can tell the birds are all well looked after and every effort is made to add to their quality of life and maintaining the place. The shows were excellent we saw one in the morning and later in the day. We both really want to come back and try the owl experience and meerkat experience. Yes yes yes there is a lot of maintenance work going on around the place , and in areas it absolutely needs the work doing , some parts look incredibly tired BUT I don’t think it detracted from the great experience and I think you are nit picking if it does.

    Eagle Experience

    My daughter booked me the eagle experience for a present. On the day I was introduced to Kevin and spent the next couple of hours one to one with him handling numerous eagles, all of which were beautiful creatures. Kevin explained the differences and characteristics of each one including Charlie who would go into a trance if you tickled his neck. To be inches away from these fantastic birds sitting on your arm feeding was indeed an experience and not one to be missed. The bird of prey show was also very good. Small downside was that there was a lot of building work being done but once finished this will be a 5 star attraction.

    Me and my wife had an amazing day watching the amazing bird displays, cuddling the huskies and flying some birds with a tasty lunch in the middle. All of the staff were welcoming and very knowledgeable throughout the day. Definitely worth every penny

    Meet the meerkats
    5
    I got this for my daughter for her 11th birthday. She loved it! The keeper was very welcoming and had a lot of knowledge about the meerkats. There was a small group of us (4 people). The meerkats were very friendly and cute, running over us and feeding from our hands. It lasted roughly 45 minutes. It was definitely worth it.

    We did the Owl Experience today. We flew 4 owls; a little owl, a barn owl, a tawny owl and an eagle owl with Hannah. It was excellent. It was so good to be able to hold the bird yourself, experience a little fly and get up close to them. They are beautiful creatures. Hannah was really friendly, knowledgeable and informative and made our first bird of prey handling experience a real pleasure. Would highly recommend doing this activity. We watched the bird display afterwards which was also really good. Owls, eagles and vultures were in the display and again the staff were tip top! Thank you and I am sure we will return!

    For a family of 5 with 3 teenagers we all had a great day out. The husky’s were gorgeous and the first hand experience with some very impressive birds was amazing. The staff were very informative and friendly. The day was good value and included a £5 lunch voucher.

    My wife and I had a great time watching the flying displays and looking round the park seeing the birds and animals. The staff were very friendly and happy to answer questions. During our visit we had 'afternoon tea', this could not have been nicer, very well presented and very enjoyable with attentive staff pandering to our needs. A great day out, thanks.

    I visited with my husband and 13 year old daughter. We walked round the park in the day - the birds were incredible and we enjoyed the opportunity to handle them and watch them fly. The evening was gorgeous - the tents are spacious, the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly, and the huskies, well they were amazing, albeit a little crazy :-) We would all recommend this experience to families and couples alike.

    Booked this for my daughter's 16th birthday. Absolutely awesome time knowledgeable and highly dedicated staff. The animals are looked after well with extreme dedication. All staff are extremely professional and accomadated our needs. Adequate food in the evening and morning tea coffee and juice on tap. Beautiful location and the teepees were clean. We slept well was just a little cold and floor hard for me even though cushion provided so if your delicate like me take better sleeping bag and a mattress of your own. The experience was way above our expectations and good value considering you get accommodation 2 meals drinks and the experience all in. Highly recommended can't wait to visit again. Thank you so much again for a great time xxxx

    Eagle Heights - Lovely day, ruined by smokers
    3
    My wife, myself and 2 year old had a lovely time today. We really enjoyed being able to have photos with some of the birds. The only disappointment was a few people walking around the main area smoking! One of these people had a bundle of keys and looked as if he was possibly staff (sorry if I’m assuming wrong) either way he was smoking in the main area whilst children were having photos with the birds.
