One of Britain’s few private falconry centres, Dartmoor Hawking sits at the heart of Dartmoor National Park. internationally recognized as having some of the most dramatic and stunning scenery in the country. set in 40 acres on the beautiful Bovey Castle estate, we have plenty of space to allow clients to really see these magnificent birds flying at their best. But the wings of a raptor have few limitations and we also have access to about 15,000 acres of hunting/flying ground away from the site.
Dartmoor Hawking is not open to the general public which means that we can devote all our time to our clients. In turn, that means that each individual has one of the most interactive and personal experiences with birds of prey available in the country. As a privately-run centre, we ensure that your time with us is as enjoyable and exciting as possible.
Our hands-on approach is inherent in all that we offer. On our introduction and experience days, the emphasis is very much on clients handling and flying birds. For those wishing to experience real falconry, our hunting days provide a fantastic opportunity to work with birds in the field and see what the hawks can really do!
Unique to us our Falconry on Horseback sessions give a fantastic opportunity to combine the art of horsemanship with that of falconry
Our aim is to share the wonders of birds of prey and falconry with all our clients. At Dartmoor Hawking, we know that your time spent with our hawks, falcons, owls and eagles will be a truly unforgettable experience
