Just Breathtaking! Loved every minute 🦅
May 2021 • Friends
So my friend and I went to see Gary and the Stockley Birds of Prey experience at Arley Hall.

It was a delayed birthday present from January 2020 that I had bought for my friend, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, of course it had been delayed.

We weren’t sure what to expect as we pulled up at Arley Hall. We were quite early so I contacted Gary who told me he was on his way and was very friendly, making us feel very welcome from that moment.

All I can say is that you must go and experience how Gary educates and interacts with these magnificent creatures. You get to hold them (through a gauntlet of course), see some of their lovely character and watch them fly. Honestly they are amazing and we just loved every minute of today, and Arley Hall is beautiful! We had lunch there.

Thanks so much Gary! And hey, if you are somebody reading this review wondering whether or not you should do this experience……. do it, you’ll never forget it! x

Fantastic birthday treat
May 2021
Gary was fantastic and very knowledgeable about all the different species of owls that we were shown as my parents booked the it's a hoot encounter for my birthday present.

Felt very much at ease as I was apprehensive at first and got some great photo/video footage which I will treasure as it is an experience I have always wanted to try owl handling

Would not hesitate to recommend Gary and Stockley Farm Birds of Prey to anyone who loves owls

We were lucky enough to have Gary and his beautiful beloved birds of prey to ourselves today. What a fantastic time we had. Gary is a very amiable and interesting man, who treats his feathered friends with the love, care and respect they deserve. We also learnt a lot. I'm absolutely smitten with Finn but all the birds we saw today were amazing. I would highly recommend Stockley Birds of Prey and Gary for a wonderful experience. Thanks so much.

Lovely Day Out!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We visited a while ago and forgot to leave a review so sorry it’s late!

I organised the day for my partners birthday as a surprise, we had admired birds of prey and owls from afar at shows and similar things but never held them or got this up close!
We had a wonderful day! it was very interactive with lots of beautiful birds and very informative!

We got to hold a range of birds of prey and some beautiful owls to!

During flying Buzz (the buzzard), a wild buzzard flew after him trying to attack, luckily Buzz was able to hold his own (I have attached the pictures of him you asked me for, sorry it took so long!)

Would highly recommend, would even go back again myself!

It was great, we loved it!

Amazing afternoon
Nov 2020 • Couples
My husband had a wonderful experience here today. Gary was a very friendly and knowledgeable host. We were lucky enough to get to handle and visit a wide variety of birds with Alex the Indian Eagle owl being the star of the show. Well worth visiting, even a few spots of rain didn't depen the day for us, thank you Gary.

My grandchildren and myself had the best time experiencing a few hours with the birds and the handlers. I would recommend this highly for a close up experience.

Wow! Don’t miss this.
Sep 2020 • Friends
What a fantastic experience! Gary was so knowledgable and interesting and we were told all about each bird. It was a privilege to be so close to them. I’d been lucky to win the experience and Gary made it extra special by allowing us a behind the scenes Tour of the aviaries. Highly recommended!
