There is a good café which has good views of the Kites and also has an out door seating area, this is... More

My wife was itching to go and see the Red Kites and I must say that this was wonderful. The weather was lovely (which helped) There is a charge of £1.50 for 2 hours parking or £3.00 for all day. There are two playgrounds for children, one for little tots and one for bigger children. There is a really nice... More

This has one of the most fantastic views lakes trees and Red Kites and all other birds visiting nearby. If you visit at 3 in the afternoon the kites are fed and it's the most awesome sight with dozens of these magnificent birds flying about just a few yards above your head. The cafe offers good wholesome food at reasonable... More

Loads of red kites to see, especially at 3 pm each day when there are over 100 to be seen from the visitor centre. Food is really good and the walks and views are wonderful

This a pleasant place to visits including watching Red Kites being fed. There is a small children's play area and a nice restaurant with visitor centre and nice walks and views.

One of the most awesome sights I have ever seen was the feeding of these wonderful birds in the wild. The visitor center is lovely and the cafe varied (a little dear perhaps) but it all goes to help this wonderful place so we didn't mind

When God made the world he certainly kept the best until last!! What a fantastic place. We've been going to Aberystwyth for years and today is the first time for us to stop at Bwlch Nant yr Arian. The views are simply breath-taking from all directions. You watch in awe as the red kites hover, dive and glide above you.... More

We felled them in 2013 to help stop the spread of this disease to other forests as well as remove the infected trees from here. In winter 2014, we replanted 12,000 native deciduous species including seesile oak, birch, wild cherry and... More
