Free Falconry Display Takes Flight

A free falconry display will take place in the stunning grounds of Tregenna Castle Hotel on Wednesday 1st June.

From 6 – 7.30pm, owls, falcons and hawks will show off their breathtaking flight skills around the beautiful estate in St Ives. They will demonstrate the differences between their free flying abilities before a static display then allows visitors to get close to these magnificent birds of prey.

Julian Clement of Countryside Hawking enjoys giving the demonstrations at Tregenna Castle:

“Tregenna offers a very private location so visitors can actually put the glove on and have the birds fly to them. It’s a great experience that everyone can enjoy.”

Tregenna’s 72 acre estate provides a huge variety of woodland walks that are free to enjoy and include the ravine walk recently featured on Inside Out as well as sub tropical gardens.

The hotel’s General Manager, Sheila Barker, encourages the general public to visit:

“To see the birds of prey soar effortlessly above this beautiful estate with its coastal backdrop is timeless. The castle is historic and the nature trail itself was originally created in the 1920s and has recently been restored. The falconry displays really add to the estate’s sense of history and beauty.”

Entry to the falconry displays is free and there are another six sessions planned during July and August.

Tregenna’s hotel facilities are available for non-residents as well as guests throughout the year. This includes the Brasserie where a well earned hot chocolate makes for a perfect treat after the falconry displays.
