Free Falconry Displays throughout Summer Holidays at Tregenna Castle

Free falconry displays are to take place every Wednesday throughout the summer holidays in the stunning grounds of Tregenna Castle Hotel. The first of the holiday series is to take place on 27th July and everyone is welcome.

From 6 – 7.30pm, owls, falcons and hawks will show off their breathtaking flight skills around the 72 acre estate in St Ives. A static display allows the audience to get close to these beautiful birds of prey and the birds will then be set free to demonstrate the differences between their free flying abilities.

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 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 the hotel facilities are available for non-residents. This includes the Brasserie where a well earned hot chocolate is the perfect treat following the magnificent displays.
