Cheltenham Gold Cup!

Spend a magical evening watching owls fly by moonlight. The perfect gift for a loved one or festive outing for a group of friends. You will get to experience these elusive birds in their natural environment while enjoying the Centre in a different, atmospheric light.

The experience is approximately 2 hours, beginning at 6:30pm with a complimentary festive drink. You will then receive a guided tour to see many of these nocturnal hunters by torchlight. Warm up in the café with complimentary hot food and drink before the main event – the flying demonstrations.

One flying demonstration will be indoors and will introduce you to our smaller owls while the other will be outside with our larger owls, lit by just our spotlights and the moon.

Book now for something truly magical this winter at the International Centre for birds of prey in Newest… just down the road from us… 2nd-30th November

Prince Charles visited Ross-on-Wye today and officially launched the festival. Visit for full details. In 1770 William Gilpin took the Wye tour from Ross to Chepstow and in 1782 published what is reckoned to be the UK’s first tourist guide-2020 is the 250th anniversary and we are celebrating it!

We’ve been busy in the orchard. Hedge cutting and clearing trees.. and planting new trees ready for your visit. We are adding a shelter with benches and  a stone fire pit for those cold evenings! Watch this space for more photos when its done!
