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

I was very disappointed to return after 2 years to find all the devastation by the loss of the trees. But the plus was seeing the Red Kites being fed. I also missed the bird hide by the feeding station to get close up photography. The food is good in the cafeteria but my god the service is slow and... More

We have driven past this place a zillion times on the way to and from Aber and although we knew from the sign that it was a 'forestry type place' we never knew what was actually here. That was until a geocache pulled us in one day. Then we saw there was a visitor centre, a great looking little café,... More

Family of four arrived in time for a quick walk around the lake, have lunch in the cafe and then watch the red kites being fed by the on-site staff. The kite feeding session gives visitors a chance to see a large number of birds in one go. The staff were particularly helpful and informative and I managed to take... More

Got some amazing photos being here at feeding time. It's well worth the little drive out of Aber. The long walk around the place is really nice too would deffo recommend. If your hungry the cafe does a decent meal for a decent price. Good Scones :)
