What we
live for

Dedicating our life not only to caring for owls, but in educating people about the conservation of wild and captive owls.

Our Mission Statement

What we do

The Owl Sanctuary intends to provide dedicated tailored attractions to all visitors, based upon the concepts of “Owls, Conservation and Education” in all its variations. To offer its educational facilities to the casual tourist visiting the Lake District and to schools and local groups as well as associations and Care Homes for education and therapy through out the North West. To provide a dynamic, hands-on educational attraction to people of all ages, from all ethnic backgrounds and religious beliefs.

We can visit you at your school, club, group, association, care home or event
for a cost to cover travelling and a donation towards the Owls upkeep.

If you would like to book a visit or have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ‘Contact Us’.
