The Secret Owl Garden
Are you open to the public/are you a visitors centre?
We are currently only taking visitors by appointment only for our pre-booked private & group experiences whilst we build our brand new centre in our new location. We are aiming to reopen early 2020 to the public.
How do I book a private flying experience?
You can now book your experience online HERE
Where will my private flying experience take place?
Your experience will take place at The Secret Owl Garden in Noble Court Holiday Park. You'll receive special directions as park of your order confirmation.
Where should I meet you?
When you arrive at Noble Court please follow the yellow Secret Owl Garden signs through the park to where our lovely team will be there ready to introduce you to the owls. Please arrive 5 minutes before your experience start time to ensure you are able to spend the maximum amount of time flying.
Please note we are unable to accommodate you more than 15 minutes before your experience start time.
What should I wear for my experience?
Just dress for the weather and wear footwear that is comfortable for you to walk in for the duration of your experience. Some of your experience could take place on grass that could be damp, so please take this into consideration. The owls will not mind what you wear!
Can I come and watch my family/friends fly on their experience?
Of course, if you have a friend or family member coming out flying and you would like to tag along and take photos then you are more than welcome. Spectator tickets can be pre-paid on booking or purchased on the day in cash for £10 per person.
Can I take photos?
Yes! Please click away and don’t forget to send us them if you get any good ones or post them to our social media pages:

Do age restrictions apply?
It is safe for anyone to fly as we have birds to suit all ages. However, on our private experiences, anyone under 16 must be accompanied by a full paying 'flying' adult. We don’t charge for under 5’s in your group, they are welcome to join in if they are brave enough.
Our booking system will ask you for the ages of your party. This is to help us select the most suitable owls for your party.
Is it suitable for people with walking difficulties?
As all of our experiences are private, then we can tailor them to your needs. You are able to walk as much or as little as you like. There are some minor inclines but we can stop as often as you like or stay in one place. We've also had guests bring lawn chairs if you prefer not to stand for long periods of time.
The paths around the park are very well kept.
Is it suitable for people with learning difficulties?
Of course, animals are a fantastic way to learn for anyone. We do not charge for support workers/ personal assistants to come along and watch/support.
What happens if it rains?
If it is just a bit drizzly then the owls will fly fine and we can dodge the showers. If the forecast is for torrential rain we will contact you beforehand and attempt to rearrange. We want you to have the best experience possible and having heavy rain blurring your photos is not ideal.

How long is my voucher valid for?
1 year from the date of purchase. We advise that you book your experience as soon as you have a suitable date as we get very busy in the summer months and at weekends.
What happens if my voucher is close to expiring but I won’t have time to use it?
We can extend your voucher for an additional 3 months if it is nearing the expiry date.
£10 per voucher
What happens if my voucher expires?
Once expired vouchers are not able to be redeemed or extended. We recommend using your vouchers as soon as possible.
Do you do discounts for large groups (6+)?
Yes, just give us an email and we’ll see what we can do for you if you have 6 or more people who want to fly on our private experiences.
Can I bring my dog to my experience?
We would kindly ask our guests not bring dogs on experiences, even friendly dogs. They will be unable to walk around with us to ensure the safety of the birds. Pets are best left with a friend or at home, not in the car while you fly.
