Attraction Information

A trip to the charming Screech Owl Sanctuary is a good choice for kids of all ages. Not only do they care for and rehabilitate sick owls in Cornwall, they also promote awareness of the conservation needs of owls so you're combing a really morally worthwhile visit with the fun chance to look at their hooters.

They help promote conservation by informing and enabling visitors to see and touch a variety of owls, from some of the smallest to some of the largest in the world!

The area is accessible throughout the day and there is always a friendly member of staff available to tell you fascinating facts and answer any questions. This is a great chance for kids to get up close to owls and learn about wildlife conservation.

You can also see miniature Shetland ponies, Pygmy goats, emus and alpacas in the petting zoo.

If you fancy some extras, there are guided tours and Falconry displays. Falconry experiences are wonderfully popular and need to be booked in advance, so please allow up to 4 week's notice.

And as well as all that you've got the lovely little outdoor adventure play area with equipment including swish slides, climbing features, monkey bars, swings and a trampoline. That's all right the picnic tables so the grown-ups can relax and get the picnic ready for munching on while the kids are running about 'owling.
