As soon as you enter the gate you are the VIP; there is just you, Sandra and, of course, her owls. The only thing that is more important than you are the welfare and contentedness of the owls. It is quickly evident that she is passionate about wildlife and owls in particular. Immediately you feel like a friend rather than a client as Sandra imparts a wealth of information in a relaxed and conversational way. Sandra’s love for her owls is so evident from the outset as is their love for her and it’s this special bond that allows a visitor to share in this unique relationship. You cannot help but be drawn into the magic that is owls.
The experience can only be described as ‘up close and personal’; you can’t get any closer than having an owl perched on your gloved hand (several times!) or any more personal than a viewing tailored to you and no one else.
Sandra, giving this review a 5 does not do justice to the time we spent with you, 10 out of 5 is easily awarded. Thank you for ‘raising smiles’ and the fantastic memories you and your owls have generated. We would be surprised if we are not drawn back in the future.

I came to visit Sandra and her owls with my family for my special birthday trip. We were all amazed at how wonderful it was. Sandra explained all about her owls and we got to hold them all. My grand daughter was thrilled . We had our favourites but for me it was Mumbles who made himself comfortable on me and went to sleep. It was the most facinating experience for us all and I would recommend it to anyone. I shall look forward to my next visit

Hi Sandra, thank you so much for our visit this afternoon. We loved holding all your owls, we didn't think we'd be able to stroke them let alone have snuggles with them. The owls are so calm and friendly, even the mighty Zeus. We arrived as strangers and left as friends, thank you.

My 5 year old son's encounter with Shanti the Bengal Eagle Owl at the Hautbois Family Fun Day today was the highlight of his day! Sandra's reassuring words put him immediately at ease with the Owl and made him feel important - an uplifting experience for my son. Thank- you

Feb 12 2017. Really enjoyed visit. Our granddaughter was thrilled to see and handle such a delightful group of owls. Lots of time to hear about the owls and to handle each one for photos. Relaxed and pleasant home location with snacks and drinks - helped by Sandra's Mum. Don't be scared by the thought of handling them - lots of small and medium birds - all with lovely temperaments.

Thank you for an amazing day. It is a unique experience to handle the owls. We all enjoyed it so much. Best wishes for the future and adding more owls!

Hi Sandra, just to say many thanks for a really great (and most likely unique) afternoon spent with you and your owls. My father was absolutely bowled over by Spirit, but for me it was Dusk all the
way. Brilliant, Great, Super, Smashing etc. PS photos to follow as promised.
Very interesting, informative & entertaining visit by Sandra to our little Close in Catfield. Many pictures taken with the oh so tame owls........definitely recommend. Many Thanks & have also
left feedback & pics on Trip adviser.

We had a private visit with Sandra and the owls, simply put it was fantastic! A very special birthday treat for a 9 year old little girl, as well as my boyfriend and I. We met all the Owls and each
had plenty of time to handle every owl and learn about them and their individual personalities. Sandra is so friendly and welcoming and her bond with her Owls is clear to see as well as her knowledge
and expertise. She was so reassuring with a shy child and really made the whole experience that much more special and individual. The Owls are beautiful and so tame and happy to be handled and
admired, we each left with a different favourite but they are all so stunning and well cared for. Thank you so much Sandra and all your Owls for allowing us to visit.

A lovely morning spent finding out about the owls. My son & I were made to feel very welcome. He got to hold two owls and the staff were very obliging to help with his school project. Many

My Friend Kirty, myself & her 4 girls had such a lovely time. Sandra is friendly & so knowledgeable, it's great to know the owls are in such tender care & the staff are lovely too. We had
a FAB time, the girls were mezmerised & we have some amazing pictures too. It was well worth the visit & if I'm ever in the area again I shall certainly be seeing them again.

Had a fantastic visit to the owls and of course the lovely Sandra. Harvey is so in love with Spirit. Such an amazing and special experience. Harvey had the owls to his 7th Birthday party last week
and feedback from his friends was amazing experience. Highly recommended !!!!

What can I say , we where made to feel so welcome, made time to speak to us and very knowledgeable about all the owls . It's very clear everyone there is so passionate about the animals so nice to
see . These birds are so beautiful, but are in trouble in the wild we need to do all we can for them , educating people about them is one of the best ways. Keep up the good work x
