Bespoke falconry experience days

Available September to March (Our full day is specifically aimed at those who are fascinated by the natural world and want to witness traditional falconry and the everyday life of a raptor on your own private session)

Witness our team of Hawks working alongside our German Shorthaired Pointers and Ferrets...


Tailored to your interests and specific requirements, our Bespoke Falconry Experience days are second to none and offer the chance to participate in the most ancient field sport: Falconry.

We believe that falconry requires a time commitment and dedication that most people cannot combine with a modern lifestyle. We therefore offer you the opportunity to enjoy the essence of falconry – hunting flights of the highest calibre carried out in accordance with the sport’s best traditions.

We have access to over 60,000 acres of land.  Clients will be collected at a designated meeting point by Land Rover and taken to one of our hawking grounds; depending on the location it may entail a little off road driving. You will witness our hawks, German shorthaired pointers, ferrets and humans working in unity, become one with nature and see the world through a hawk’s eyes. An adventure you will never forget.

A variety of options as to terrain, quarry and hawks flown can be selected from, or you might prefer a mixed day to maximise your experience. We offer lowland hawking in South Staffordshire and hill hawking in the Shropshire Hills, where you will witness high soaring flights.

Why not experience a range of flight strategies on our mixed day?  Hill hawking in the morning, before breaking for lunch in the field, relaxing alongside the team enjoying the beautiful views.  Then in the afternoon, experience a hawk following on in woodland and open fields.

We try and replicate their natural flying style, we do this by allowing them freedom to follow on (using us as their hunting team)  An encounter you will never forget.  Finally, watch the winter sun disappear behind rolling hills, face aglow after a day on the hills with memories of an unforgettable experience.

For clients less able to meet the rigours of a demanding day on the hills, a more relaxed form of hawking using ferrets on low ground farmland might be a better option, or why not combine this with some mixed hawking at a range of quarry species, concluding the day watching our hawks soaring the hills at over 300ft.  Any quarry caught can be prepared for you to take home for the pot with some mouth-watering recipe ideas. 

A truly unforgettable experience!
