Took the dogs on our bikes... nice and quiet on a dreary day but we all enjoyed it! Was nice to be able to let the dogs off the lead since there weren't going kids around and the red kites were out in force despite the rain. Friendly staff around and a place to wash the bikes down before loading... More

Lovely setting high in the hills overlooking stunning views down the valley towards Borth and Cardigan Bay. The Red Kites are wonderful aerial acrobats. They are fed once a day, in the afternoon, and they start to gather in the skies above the Centre in anticipation. The Centre itself has a lovely cafe overlooking the lake and there are playground...

went here on an unplanned day out whilst staying nearby in Aberystwyth. What an excellent facility set in stunning countryside. Lots to do from short walks to mountain biking! One of the best experiences is watching the red kites at feeding time - simply magnificent! Great facilities on site too including disabled access, a cafe, toilets, information centre and shop....

Lovely tranquil views - plenty of wildlife. Red Kite Feeding at certain times of the day is well worth seeing :-)

We visited BNYA park for 2 hours. It's a good area for biking, trekking and sight seeing and I guess they have plans for development as the trees were being felled on some of the hills. The kites feeding was the main attraction for us and it was a wet and cold day. There was perhaps not a lot else... More

Great place to visit around the feeding time of the red kites (2pm in winter). We walked the dogs around the lake a couple of times in the morning then had lunch in the café (great range of food and drinks at very good prices) before going to watch the red kites being fed. It was an amazing spectacle with... More

Well worth a visit - nice cafe/visitor centre for lunch overlooking the lake and a pleasant approximately 1/2 hour walk around the lake on a smooth all-weather surfaced path. The highlight is the feeding of the red kites 2pm in winter (GMT) and 3pm in summer (BST) there must have been well over 100 kites circling above the water then... More
