Take a Hawk Walk

Discover the ancient form of falconry at Summer Lodge just a short walk from The Acorn Inn. Paul, together with his Harris hawks Bertie, Titch and Bumble, will treat guests to a unique experience.

After a short introduction to the hawks, you’ll take a 60-90 minute stroll around the grounds, with a chance to learn all about these majestic birds of prey. Watch as the hawks leave and return to the glove on command, swooping and soaring overhead with impressive speed and agility.

This hands-on encounter takes place on selected mornings at 10am, and can be experienced in one place for those with limited mobility.


£50 per person (no minimum number of guests)
£25 per child under the age of 16 with a paying adult

Children under 16 must be accompanied by a person who is over 18 even if they are not intending to handle the birds. Children under seven may watch the birds but are unable to handle them.
