Attraction details
Type: Nature/ Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
Owner description: The Bird Park is a small park set in a natural Cotswold Valley so there are small hills. It is ideal for families with toddlers as it's not too large. All the birds are free and feed from your hand as do the fallow deer and pygmy goats and the miniature donkeys are there in the summer months. There's a huge collection of peafowl, pheasant and a comprehensive collection of waterfowl. There are follies for the children to play in especially the Wendy House where you will always find toys. Bird Food can be purchased on arrival along with teas and coffees. In the summer the Kookaburras are flown at noon. This is a casual park where you can get close to the birds and animals. The park is undergoing a major change at present with a new visitor centre being built which will be opening in August 2014 which we are looking forward to greatly as there will be toilets a small gift shop and a wide range of courses for adults and children alike will be available. There is a temporary access, however, this is not affecting the park which will remain open daily with the exception of Good Friday.

I visited here with my husband and thoroughly enjoyed the walk and seeing all the animals. We had previously bought a group ticket and had already done the Roccoco Garden's with the dogs the day before. Dogs aren't allowed in the Deer Park as the animals free roam, but the can be walked in the adjacent abbey grounds - but... More

This was a spontaneous trip out and we loved it. It was over 20 years since we first came to Prinknash Abbey and the Bird and Deer Park were not around! Be prepared to be mugged by birds at the gates but none were vicious and little children were running about happily with no problem at all. We can't wait... More

We love it here and it starts our christmas. Me, my hubby, our kids (15, 6 & 2), grandparents have been going for the past 3 years and find it so magical with all the lights. We always go Christmas Eve and love it my 6 year old especially. Staff were so friendly and helpful, even via email before we... More

I took my 3 year old to the christmas evening to visit santa. We struggled to park at first, then walked down to the park. He loved all the lights around the park (some weren't working but he wasn't bothered by that) We went to see the reindeer - they did look sad and the enclosure could have been made... More

£60 for 4 adults and 2 children (4 and 2). Burger stall charging you for food on entry, Craft tent making cards with bits and bobs was OK & Free; visiting the good fairy in a Romany caravan, fine and free with the added joy of a tube of tiny sweets (choking hazard for a 2 year old). Face painting... More

A very disappointing evening. On entry we saw people with buggies struggling to get up the steps to leave and was surprised there was no ramp. Although the visitor centre has had a makeover, the park looks very tired and not very safe. Both my children fell over and I witnessed countless others. Some of the Christmas lights weren't working... More

No Christmas cheer. Unfriendly staff. Paid £10 per person to see miserable reindeer and miserable ducks sat in mud. Santa was sat in a dirty marquee with a load of cardboard boxes next to him. We wanted to take a photo to show you all, but we were not allowed!! A trip to B & Q would have been more... More

I visited for the Santa winter theme attraction and have to say it's left me very disheartened... Expensive to visit and you still have to pay for feed for animals and £6.50 for a photo of santa!! Incredibly overpriced!! The pathways were all slippy and uneven and I saw more people than I could count on my fingers fall over... More

Myself and my daughter visited the park for their Christmas event, we loved it! Feeding birds and goats was fun, and we saw Rudolph! There was a fairy in a gypsy caravan and a brilliant Santa in his grotto. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and even provided another gift (free) when the one from Santa was lost. All...
