Small Breeds Farm and Owl Centre is a magical place for your family to go and experience the company of many rare and miniature animals, birds and all sorts of owls from all over the world! Kids will be amazed at the variety between differing types of owl, pleased by the cute and cuddly specimens and blown away by Tilly the tortoise who despite being 26 years is still only 3 inches long!
During winter months and in very wet weather the animals are displayed undercover which makes it much more comfortable both for them and for you; a lovely touch!
Those wanting to get a bit more depth into their visit can try one of the special experiences! The Animal Encounter entails a happy hour of supervised grooming, feeding, walking of a good selection of their creature features.
The Owl Experience is 2 hours of intensive care for the owlets (awww!) where you'll monitor egg development, help perfect an environment ready for them plus prepare their food and feed them when they arrive! And finally the Animal Carer experience is a full-on half or full day of mucking in and mucking out!
Certainly not for types who don't like to be dirty, this is a genuine behind the scenes experience ideal for older kids who think they'd like to work in the industry.

I took my mother and my two daughters here on Mothers day, after hearing nothing but positive things. And throughout the whole experience I couldn't fault it. The animals all looked clean and happy, albeit inside due to the horrific weather outside. We arrived at perfect lambing season and even saw some day old baby goats. And the owls were so beautiful! Plus only £1 for a pot of feed so you can get the bigger goats to eat out of your hand!! It was cheap to get in and there are nice clean loos. Staff are helpful, The cafe looked delicious but we didn't get a chance to try it. Oh well...All the more reason to go back.
