We are regular visitors but had not been down to the hide at feeding time for a while. This is a fantastic free (ignoring the parking fee) experience. Well worth walking one of the mountain trails too if you have the time and energy. Cafe is good too!

Came along to the 3pm red kite feed, it was amazing! Well worth the visit, 100s of red kites were at the feeding and the view from the walk on the lake was fantastic. We only did the short walk which was great and loved the info boards. We went for a drink in the cafe and the service was... More

Had a lovely trip today, first visit (wont be the last!, as we plan to come back and walk the Miners and Ridge Trails), watching the Kites come into feed was fabulous, lots of places around the lake to sit and wonder of the spectacle. The lake in the mountains is pretty and tranquil and the visitor centre looked lovely... More

A great place for all ages. Great biking trails for all abilities. Well marked walking trails including a pushchair and wheelchair friendly walk around the lake. Interesting play area for the youngsters and a great cafe to grab a well deserved cuppa and something to eat. All of this plus amazing countryside views and a chance to watch the Red... More

The centre is very modern and the cafe and seating are very nice. The walking trails were very good and well kept. The kite feeding was fantastic and worth seeing. Our friends did some mountain biking and said that was good too.

We recently made a second visit. The paths have been made with easier access for disabled visitors. Lovely setting. Cafe was also very pleasant. If the weather is misty though the kites won't come in to be fed, which is what we had. Our previous visit was on a good weather day. On a good weather day I would recommend... More

This place didn't look very inspiring from the car, but once out exploring it was wonderful. There were great walking trails, with beautiful views across to the coast. The lake and surrounding area was good for bird watching. The café was very good - lovely coffee and cakes. Would have liked to stay and see the red kite feeding but... More
