About Screech Owl Sanctuary

This is a unique and amazing opportunity to meet and touch a number of our hand-tame owls and to learn about their characteristics.

These owls have been hand reared for educational purposes and range from some of the smallest species in the world to among the largest.

There is always a member of staff on hand to answer any questions and tell you lots of fascinating facts. This area is accessible throughout the day.

We are always striving to improve the facilities and attractions here at the sanctuary. As part of this continuous process we are delighted to offer visitors the chance to fly our birds in a falconry experience or to participate in a handling experience on a one to one with a staff member and hold on the glove one of the owls from our educational team.

You may also participate in our Animal feeding, where the Meerkats, pygmy goats, emus, alpacas and miniature Shetland ponies have their snacks. We also have ducks which can be fed in their new enclosure complete with pond and high rise duck house.

Relax while the kids play on our delightful equipment including, slides, climbing, monkey bars, swings and trampoline.

Our children's play area is surrounded by picnic benches on the lawn so Mum and Dad can take time to relax and perhaps enjoy a cup of tea or coffee.

You can make your visit extra special with a one to one owl handling session with one of our qualified staff and any of our hand tame owls.Please see admission section for prices.


Chaz & Debbie have returned again to franchise our popular tearoom with home-made cakes and freshly cooked food.

The tea rooms will continue to provide birthday parties for both young and old and can be tailored to cater for all requirements and tastes.

Our 40-seater tea rooms offer friendly service, good-value food and drinks plus additional outdoor seating overlooking the lakeside area if you'd prefer.
