Great place to visit if you like walking, bird watching, mountain biking and spectacular Red Kite watching and feeding around 2pm in the winter and 3pm in the summer. Also great park for the children. Excellent restaurant with hot and cold food. I can reccomend the spicy lamb sausages with Welsh onion marmalade!

Went here for our 4th trip to see the red kites being fed. Well worth a visit to see dozens of these spectacular birds, circling and swooping down to get there free meal. Plenty of other birds to see as well especially around the feeders next to the cafe outdoor seating area. Free attraction with just a small parking fee... More

Landscape interesting (and on this occasion weather good too); staff helpful; food simple but well presented; we had two good walks and took plenty of interesting photographs

We were walking to Devil's Bridge from Borth, but stopped to see the red kite feeding - a fabulous sight. There must have been 100 + red kites circling around below, above and around us! A truly memorable experience. We copped out of the final few miles walk to Devil's Bridge (but will definitely return to do that soon), so... More

Excellent walks, good children's outdoor area. Food is basic but wholesome. Even though the place has been deforested due to infection, it remains stunningly beautiful and peaceful. Good for walking and mountain biking.

Despite it being a very cold and windy February day we spent a happy couple of hours doing the lake walk, animal spotting, playing in the playground and colouring in the cafe. The kids animal spotting activity was great and kept my 3 year old busy, the food in the cafe was fresh and very reasonably priced. The setting was... More

A very well made and designed visitors centre which is also very well looked after. There is a small shop with some decent items for sale, plus a cafe which is very clean and offers very good food etc. Getting to the lake involves quite a steep slope or steps, but once your at the lake the path is very...

Visit regularly for walks with our Grandchildren. Routes well planned whether they be for walking or mountain biking. Lovely food served in the cafe. Children enjoy seeing the Kites being fed.
