Dartmoor Hawking, North Bovey, Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor Hawking, North Bovey, Dartmoor National Park

We'd put this high on our list of essential Dartmoor experiences.

Whilst it's a remarkable experience to fly owls, falcons and eagles from Dartmoor Hawking's base near the luxury hotel Bovey Castle, it's a particular joy taking Harris Hawks out onto the moor.

On the day we spent with Dartmoor Hawking, we flew the birds at Holwell Lawn against the backdrop of Haytor Rocks and Hound Tor.

We run a number of travel sites and have taken birds of prey out in various locations across the UK but Dartmoor Hawking has provided the most memorable experience. The owner is well known and respected within the hawking community. On a recent research trip for our Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park website, a local bird of prey expert based on the shores of Loch Lomond was singing Dartmoor Hawking's praises. Small world. Highly recommended by experts and customers alike.
