North Devon Hawk Walks

Welcome to North Devon Hawk Walks.

We offer visitors of all ages the opportunity to experience at first hand the thrill of falconry in North Devon. This can take the form of a walk on Exmoor, or through beautiful fields and woods, accompanied by Lady Macbeth and Cassius , both Harris Hawks. They will demonstrate their flying ability for you, while you learn something of the history and practice of this ancient and fascinating sport. North Devon, and Exmoor in particular, is an ideal place take part in this ancient country sport.

The birds will allow you to feed them, carry them and help exercise them so that they keep in top hunting condition.

The birds are extremely photogenic so remember to bring your camera with you.

A ONE HOUR HAWK WALK COSTS JUST £30 for a group of three people. So, whether there are one, two or three of you, it still costs only £30.

Look at what others charge and you will see what great value this is. Larger groups can be accomodated, usually at the cost of £10 per person.

To purchase a voucher or pay for a hawk walk, please send a cheque for £30 payable to Nigel Penfold, to 21 Broad Close, North Molton, Devon, EX36 3JD. We are based in North Molton, just one mile from Exmoor National Park

About Us:

Apart from hawk walks, and hunting half days, we offer talks and presentations on hawking. These are tailored to your needs and can be as long or as short as you like.

We are happy to visit schools, retirement homes, in fact anywhere .
If your organisation is looking for an unusual and interesting presentation, we can help.

Our presentations include a Powerpoint-based overview entitled "Falconry in Western Art and Literature", which explores the the numerous ways in which falconry has been depicted from pre- Roman times to the present day.

Using falconry as a common thread, this is a fascinating way of learning about the development of artistic styles and media, from mosaics to cinema.

We also provide one week introductory courses. These provide the basic knowledge needed for someone to handle, house and look after a hawk. Tailored to your needs. Cost is just £200 for the week. Accomodation at our local B+B pub. Contact us for more details.

If you have already been on a hawk-walk with us, and would like to build upon the experience, then our "HAWK WALK PLUS" may be of interest. This lasts for three hours and includes visiting the aviary where the hawks live, taking them up, equipping them, weighing them and preparing them for transport. We then drive to a flying site and you spend two hours with the hawks. The Hawk Walk Plus gives you an insight into what is required to look after hawks, as well as a lot more time spent "hands on" the hawks. Cost is £90 per person.
