So peaceful, haven't seen the kite feeding yet but hope to. Lovely for a casual walk around the bottom or a climb if you fancy it.

I don't think I have ever seen anything more breath taking than when they feed the Red Kites. You are so close and there must have been over a 100 of them. Watching these beautiful and majestic birds was just amazing. We enjoyed it so much we went twice. The place also offers walks and free downhill biking tracks. The... More

This is a beautiful, unique location with excellent facilities totally ruined by abysmal customer service. A mixed group of family and friends called in at 5.20pm last Saturday initially to use the bathroom facilities. On noticing the cafe we decided to stop for a cup of tea and cake as we had an hour's drive to our hotel. Upon ordering... More

Went to see the red kites being fed, although not as many as in the summer still a fantastic site. Called in the cafe for a bite to eat and to get warm. Good selection of food well cooked.

It is unbelievable unless one sees for himself how Red Kites appear in the sky at a particular time and come down to the ground to take food offered by the Government authorities. The place is predominantly depressed area, a valley with a natural lake surrounded by hills all around. Even without Kites this place has a beauty value with... More

We stumbled upon this place completely by accident, and what a discovery it was! We sat and had lunch in the cafe which served great, locally sourced food. The cafe has views overlooking the valley and the lakes, breathtaking! The walk around the edge of the lake is an easy gentle walk which was easily accessible for the children who... More

Well, Red Kites are fed at 3 o'clock where the feeder goes onto a centralised small area jutting out and they all come down there to feed. A path rakes you down there, also many bird feeders that attract many birds chaffinches, green finches, blue tits to name but a few. The cafe/shop has tables by the window so you... More
